Welcome to the forum!
I think just like with people, doctor's can tell you their thoughts on a person's health, but it's not a certain thing, when my dad was in the hospital with a spine injury and was told he would never walk - he walked out of that hospital
- as long as a person and animal are persistent and motivated they can do wonderful things! I am sure Ales will give you much love for a while
We will be patiently waiting to see pics of your family!
