I am hopeful..It is to early to know if he will get stronger and stop limping. I am planning to start driving him to different places a few times a week cause I am bored of the same few blocks close to the condo I live in. Our 'old' walks were not that far away, but too far for him now. I can drive him to parking lots 1/2-3/4 mile away that are right next to less urban walks. Even if he can walk that far, it would take a very very long time. I have to keep reminding myself that he is walking with a walker..and people walk much slower with a walker than without, too.
