Hey guys, sorry I have been MIA. So much has been happening. For starters, I was having some health issues, a LOT of abdominal pain, I'm talking debilitating abdominal pain (keeping me from being able to get out of bed), that my doctor kept passing off as IBS without really doing ANY examination. He also kept ignoring a lump I found in my breast. I finally changed doctors back in late June and the next thing I knew I was going through rotating doors in and out of multiple surgeries. I'm just now getting back on my feet. I now have a clean bill of health along with no more lumps or pain. The lump was benign but it turned out that the abdominal issues could have cost my life if they hadn't been found or fixed...which they are all good to go now.
My son has been going through therapies and is now in preschool so that he may later have a normal life with Autism. My mom is getting closer and closer to having to be declared incompetent and through all this poor Cinny has been waiting on the sidelines.
That's right, he has been on vacation since June and living it up in the paddock with the babies (horses 2 and under). He has proven a great playmate and babysitter and now the barn owner wants to start turning out her knew yearling she just bought with him......it makes me proud that he can be trusted with the little ones.
I started riding this week, but we are both taking it slow. Cin has lost most of his muscle tone. It's hard for me to get down there with everything going on and I had a friend lunging him. She said he was doing well but last week I got a few texts from my barn owner telling me Cin needed grain because he's dropping weight. She wouldn't be so concerned unless he was getting really bad, which is rare because he is such an EASY keeper normally. So I got a little concerned that something is wrong with hiim and got out there as soon as I could and this is what I found.
Yup, he's really EMACIATED alright LOL.
Anyway, that's it in a nut shell. It's good to get back into doing my usual things, and I look forward to meeting all of the newbies that have joined since I was last on.
