Hey CJ8Sky, I've been wondering where you've been. I noticed your absense, glad you are back!
Well, I was getting Nelson back into Eventing Condition for a couple of weeks we were doing well, until he choked this past weekend. It was around 7:00ish when my MIL called about him showing weird signs and when I got out there it was sure enough - that he was choking.
My vet came out and spend 2 1/2 hours just trying to get the tube into him, let along trying to get the blockage out -she was unsuccessful, where we had to rush him to a specialist on Sunday.
So now he's on the mend. On Ticoprim and Bute - but on a full recovery and getting back to his normal self slowly, but surely.
He may have a breathing problem now though. So I'll have to get him back to the Specialist we took him to, to have them re-scope him and give him a checkup. He now has accumulated a nasty cough - so we'll see where that leads.
Moving Nelson to a new fascillity on the 1st of June - looking forward to that - seeing how he recoups that is.
I've had to scratch 3 HT's in June, because there is no way I am putting Boo through that since we are out of shape, and I don't know where his prognosis is going to end up.
I got my Green Card on my Birthday - April 17th. So that was a great B-day Present. And Hubby took me to Chicago for a weekend vacation.
That was allot of fun! It was great to see the city and all the tourist places - since the only time I've been to Chicago was when I got to see a lovely fascillity where I got to Audit GM's clinics.
Aside from that, not much else.
