Duke popped a disc in his back. We didn’t know it was this serious until he had trouble using his back legs. After much agonizing about the cost to do and MRI and fix the disc we decided to go forward. We could have done conservative treatment and hoped he would recover but the odds aren’t as good as just doing the surgery. I dipped into my retirement account to pay for this, so my kids thru their inheritance have contributed to this effort - thanks guys!
