Not yet! Today's my day off, so I planned on spending most of the day at the barn but unfortunately my car isn't up for the trip today, so I'm sitting here going stir crazy until 5 when I can borrow a car.
I have been doing a LOT of thinking though... and this is ALL speculative. But I've been a bit irrational and VERY emotional about this whole thing obsessed with keeping his eye. But I need to be realistic, there is no way I can afford months upon months of treatment with no guarantee we can keep the eye.
IF by the end of this week (the 10 days the vet charges by) the vet's prognosis is the same or worse, I will discuss removing the eye with him.
That would absolutely KILL me to do, I LOVE this horse and his eyes. BUT if this is causing him pain, and he has to be stalled the entire time of treatment and there is no guarantee of anything, I think he would be happier to get it all over with rather than drag through for a chance of keeping the eye.
BUT for now I'm not saying anything for sure until I have a lengthy discussion with the vet and have his recommendations in mind as well.
I feel so hopeful when I see my horse, but when I'm away I just think of the facts and how little of a chance he probably has on this all.
