How We Met

Mackie came into my life when I needed him most. I had just spent almost 4 years with a horse that was all wrong for me. Mackie was such a willing partner, he made having a horse such a treat. He tried to please no matter what you asked of him. Knowing what I know now, I realize that life was really tough for Mackie. He had many health issues, everything from mild colic to choke, to allergic reaction to a vaccine and then a reaction to the antibiotic. His biggest challenge was getting and surviving EPM not once but twice. As a result of the EPM meds he developed gastric ulcers, it just went on and on. Thru all of this Mackie never once complained. It looked like we were finally on our way to enjoying ourselves, when his behavior changed, nothing drastic, just a little off. After a consultation with our Vet, an appointment was made at the University Equine Hospital for Mackie to see a cardiologist. The night before our appointment I told Mackie that we were going to get some answers, in my heart I knew it was not good, but I had hope because after all, these people were specialists. It was a very long day, filled with tons of tests and information overload. When all the info had been gathered, we sat down and they explained to me that he was in heart failure, only one of his four heart valves was functioning. They felt that this condition had been present for years, they said for me not to beat myself up, it was NOT something that either Dr. Cook or I had missed. Typically horses don't show symptoms because they keep trying, they said Mackie never gave up, his heart did.. His prognosis was poor to hopeless, I had 3 options, 1. leave him at the hospital and treat, however, they told me that they did not recommend treatment, even if it did help, it would be short lived. 2. take him home to die, but it would not be a peaceful death. 3. I could let him go now. I choose to let him go, I stayed with him, at his side the whole time, it was important to me that my face and my voice be the last he saw and heard. I held him and told him how much he was loved, I came home alone that day. He was only 12. I donated his body to the University Hospital, I got great comfort from knowing that his heart might help someone else's horse. I miss him everyday. Love you Mackie. We will meet again.

Thank you all for your support of my son's service and supporting my prayers that he'll be stationed close to me. Never thought, when I held him as a baby, that the day would come when he'd end up a world away. So many of you understand. It's not always the service, but life, itself, that destines us to live away from them. I'm at peace, because of God and His hand of protection over all who and that I love. Love, hugs and a vote.

A NEW FRIEND FOR ME AND STERLY...
You know we always do what we need to do, I have just been so beside myself, I'm not being selfish when I say, I have almost not had time to grieve myself, cry Yes...but actually grieve this whole process, No...I know you never replace one with another and believe me, this is something that I'm doing simply because Sterly needs it. I'm sure I will fall in love with this little girl, we'll see. But at least for right now, I feel some sense of relief that Sterly and I will be OK. As for another horse to ride. Don't think for a minute that with everything that has been flowing thru my head the past 4 days, I have not thought about that, but remember Charlie was not an easy keeper, he was expensive and he was hard on me emotionally, don't get me wrong, I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat, but I am not ready and not strong enough right now to think about another ride. I just need time, I'll know when and if it is to be. One giant hurdle at a time. This is not at all what I had planned for my retirement. I'll let you know when Blossom arrives. Have a good day, Love ya

THANKS FOR THE PRAYERS, IT HELPS A LOT.....
Thanks for all the messages of support, I really am still in shock, it does not feel real. My whole world has been turned upside down. My major worry now is how my "old Girl" will deal with this, I'm looking around for a mini or a donkey, to keep her company, 34 years and she has never been alone, she is still very confused, every noise she thinks it might be Charlie coming home, I don't want her to die of a broken heart like me. Love Donna Lee

CHARLIE & MACKIE, I LOVE YOU BOTH SO MUCH...
Morning my friends,
Thank you for wrapping me in hugs and being there for me, I'm so numb, it does not feel real, thought I was doing better this morning until I walked into the barn.
My eyes are so sore, I can't even read. I can't stop crying (imagine that) I just feel lost, I wonder from room to room. It happened so fast, but I knew this was a bad one, no like the other gas colics that he so often had. He was in so much pain, there was nothing I could do to help him. I hope he knows how loved he was. He was my everythig, we had such great plans for retirement. My worry now is will Sterl be OK alone, she is calling for him, she knows something is wrong. Cookie says to use the Ace if she is agitated, they often use it to ween babies, they give it to the Mares, maybe I should take some...
One day at a time, thanks for being my friend and understanding, this really hurts and it feels for fresh and raw.
I wanted to share the e mail from my brother Robbie, talk soon, Love you

Sis

So sorry to hear about Charlie. I know nothing I can say here will make your loss any easier to deal with but if there's anything we can do please let us know.

I think dealing with the loss of animals in many way is harder than dealing with the loss of people. It must be a dependency thing or more likely the unconditional love we feel from and for our animals.

WAITING TO WELCOME YOU
It is will great sadness that I tell you all that Charlie was humanely euthanized early this morning. David and I were by his side. It was following an extremely difficult colic, as always Charlie did his best, but this was one last fight he could not win. As you all know Charlie did things his way and usually the hard way. He is at peace now and always and forever in my heart, Love Donna Lee

After living in the desert for almost 30 years, it's safe to say that I've adjusted. Still not a fan of triple digit heat, though. It rained off and on Sunday. It was so nice. It can stop, now, Lol. Lots of love, always, and a vote.
