First, welcome back. I hope your recovery is a speedy one.

Big....okay, do you think maybe the cancer has spread to some other parts of his body and might have contributed to his behavior?

Sorry you're going through this, hopefully you'll be back in the saddle and able to enjoy your retirement real soon.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Wow Hag-how horrible! I am glad to hear you are doing better, and having a better recovery thru chemicals.....I cannot imagine how it hurts to take a deep breath, or....god forbid....sneeze. Continue your recovery, worry about the horse later. It does sound like metastasis may be possible for such a change. If the vet thinks it may be possible, I would be hesitant to retire him, since I would be afraid it may affect his behavior on the ground at some point also.

You concentrate on you for now, and when you are better, he may just help you decide what to do, who knows.

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......

Thanks for taking the time and effort to fill us in. I am sure it was not easy for you to type all that. Just reading it has me feeling super squeemish, especially the broken sternum. I cannot imagine your pain, and if you dont' mind, I won't try.

I thought it must be a bee sting that set Big off.. We've been having some issues with that around here. But, it's just a thought.

I hope you are recieving the very best of care. Though it's not the best way to go about getting it, it IS nice to be looked after by other people instead of doing all the looking after yourself.

Stay in touch and get well!

Wow...you sure did it up right. I have to wonder if maybe the cancer has spread to his brain and he just lost it.

Hope you mend well and quickly...

Made me thinking... Friend of mine had a mule that used to explode once in while for no reason. Last time he did my friend ended up teared in ER (although not as bad as Pat). When mule unexpectedly died soon after the accident the autopsy showed he had a tumor in his brain (NO signs outside).

Pat, I hope you'll recover fast after such a horrible accident. You were so lucky to ride with other people so they could promptly took care of situation! I don't even want to imagine what would of happen if you rode just by yourself.

Wow, just wow. Thank you for your effort telling us all what happened. I wish you a speedy recovery and getting back to enjoyable rides, soon! :)

And I'm sorry for Big... Maybe it was something he wouldn't have done if he was healthy.

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.
