R.I.P. Ginger South. “The Miracle of Healing in Spite of Death.”
The following is the Text found in this Video:
Ginger fell off my bed and got a compressed fracture in her T3/L3 part of her spine on February 28, 2014. Her back legs were paralyzed & declared most likely to never move again. This Video is a progression of Ginger South’s Paralyzed Back Legs going from NO movement to the Miracle of her MOVING her legs again! In the clip at about :32 it was 1 month after becoming Paralyzed she had NO movement in her back legs unless pinched or squeezed. You can see how lifeless they are here in the first few clips.Then after 7 weeks she got her Wheels and started walking her very first day. Then I wondered if perhaps the Wheels & physical therapy stimulated her to start moving her legs again.
I noticed very slight movement of her back Legs in the wheels as she wore them at 2:00, but I thought I was imagining it because it was so small. Watch closely when you see that shot. Then. . . I noticed the first couple of BIG MOVEMENTS in her Back Legs 1 week after wearing the wheels and physical therapy at 2:15. This was five days before she died of kidney failure. Then the day before she died (May 1, 2014) she was doing multiple huge movements and kicking her legs while in a seated and comfortable position. Sadly I did not capture on film her moving her legs while lying down as much as she did at the vet when Dr. Chuck Miller & I saw it. But I did get one clip of her moving one leg in a much smaller movement later that day at 3:15. I had just fed her and she seemed to feel much worse at this point and the movement was less.
But I DID capture the true Miracle Shot of those Legs Moving while I was holding her up from 3:46-4:09.This last shot is proof of what we saw. She truly had what I believe is voluntary movement like we had never seen before! The last clip is the very best one to see from !!! I believe what we just saw there truly was a Miracle in spite of death! Even though I wanted her to live long enough to see her walk and I don’t think I’ll ever get over the disappointment, I KNOW she might have walked!
I hope this video and Ginger can help any research and inspire other people with dogs who are paralyzed in the future.
Ginger is truly a Miracle dog in my book! I will always love her.
