    Please Pray For Nelson!!!!!

    Tonight, the 17th of January, Nelson coliced at 7:00pm.

    It was pretty bad, to the point where no matter what my vet did to try to alleviate his pain, he would not pass gas. He was palpated 3 times, and was pumped with oil and electrolites and water, and still nothing.

    We spent 5 hours at the barn with him, to the point where my vet was going to put a hole in the spot where the gas was storing up, to relieve it and to the point where my vet said he will need surgery.

    After she shaved him to do the gas releif proceedure, he dropped down and due to the dropping to the ground, he passed a huge amount of gas.

    She got him back up and he went down again, and once more he passed a huge amount of gas - to the point where he was comfortable once again.

    So my Vet put him in his stall to see what he would do, and he was out of the "I am in pain" stage, and appeared to be comfortable.

    So we left it at that. We will see where he is tomorrow. If he will need surgery, unfortunately my Family nor I can afford to do so, so - he will be "let go" of.

    So please, pray that he is out of the woods, and please pray that he will be fine. I really need your prayers and thoughts now guys - I cannot lose my BooBerry and my Best Friend, he's my everything, and I cannot let him go now, not like this!

    Thank you Luvs2Ride. I've been telling him all night that he has to pull through this, I wouldn't leave his side.

    He would dig his face into my armpit and I would grab his mane in my fingers and put my lips to his ear and just told him to get through this for me. I can't Lose my Nelson!! I JUST CAN'T!

    MIE, I am so sorry you are having to go through all of this. I will be praying for Nelson and his recovery and for you too. This has been a very rough couple of weeks for both of you and you deserve a break. I will have you in all of my thoughts. Please keep us posted. Hugs to both of you.

    Hoping it all works out.

    You really are having it all thrown at you all at once aren't you.

    I pray that he'll be standing up in his stall tomorrow, with poop looking at us saying "where is my breakfast".

    Oh my god, please let it be so....I just can't lose my big guy, not this way guys!

    He still has a large gas bubble in his gut, large intestine, on his right side, that concaved area where his hip meets his stomache.

    My Vet hopes he passes it on his own during the night. I just pray that he will get through this.

    I will be thinking of you two. Gas colic can be intensely painful, but if you can get them through that, the recovery rate is pretty good. Hoping for the best!
