Hi Caroline, here's a vote for ya. So Angle H.T's tramur starts again in the summer of 2006. Seems while he was at the clinic for his colic surgery, he developed the start of a shoe boil on his elbow. Over the next four years it got very large and would effect his stride. Decission made to go back to the hospital and have it removed. This time he did not have to be totally knocked out. And I got to watch, for most of it, left when it got a little to entailed for me. He had about an 8 inche incission. And they stitched him up good, but being the point of the elbow, well you know, it didn't hold for enough days. I came home three days later from work on a sunday and it was ripped open and bleeding. In the trailer back to the hospital, had to stay for two days. Couldn't be re-stitched, now it had to be packed daily and cleaned out and had to heal from the inside out. I felt like a full time nurse again. About a week later, he started with a fever and was punky, back to the hospital for another 2 or 3 days it was, he picked up a staff infection there the week before and now had that to deal with. But he come home and things started to improve once again. It took that 6 inches gapping hole about 6 months to fill in and another few months he had almost all the hair grown back in, you would have never known about that ordeal. Good thing it was the winter, and of course I was the nurse all winter again. We did a lot of bonding that horse and I!
Well we got lucky today and the snow storm stayed well south of us, we had over cast skies with periods of sun even, while an hour south of us were getting pounded with snow! Got the boys out in the indoor and did some showmanship with Indy. Marion and the blondies.
