I'm so sorry hun! I went through the same thing a year ago with the mare pictured in my icon. She had an impaction. We did surgery, she had a great recovery but then coliced 2 more times in a month. The last one was horrible and I didnt want to her suffer. Its the hardest thing to make that decision, but all of us that have made it know its usually the best thing. My thoughts are with you.

I'm so sorry.
The only small comfort I can offer you is that you will never have to wonder, "What if? Could I have done more?"
