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!
