Please send well wishes for Candi's surgery on Monday

Hey everyone.
My mare will go in to have her stifle surgery on Monday. It will be a long day for me.
In the early am I have someone coming to pick her up and take her to the hospital and drop her off. I will follow in my car.
Then I retun to the barn as my gelding is having a bunch of "spring" things done to him..teeth, shots, sheath.
Then I am hoping to return to the vet hospital in the later afternoon to see Candi after her surgery.
I had an ultrasound done yesterday to check for any soft tissue stuff and we found the OCD lesions to be "not very deep" So again the vet explained to me that her prognosis was very very good.

So on Monday if you all could just keep us in your thoughts I would appreciate it.
I have school in the evening on Monday so when I return home I will post an update on how things went.
Thanks in advance!
Halfpass and Candi

Lots of good thoughts heading your way. Give Candi extra hugs and scritches from all of us, and ****hugs**** to you too.

Thanks everyone.
Tomorrow iss her day! I will make sure to give her extra love and more grazing time today.
Poor girl is already full of herself from not working.
We have been handwalking and she jigs and wants to run and play. But due to a really good soaking rain I opted not to turn her loose in the round pen....just too muddy and slippery.

thanks again from Halfpass and Candi

Thanks so much.
I was just on the phone with the gal who will trailer Candi up the road to the Vet hospital.
You all I am so dang nervous. I can hardly focus on my homewark. But if I leave the work til tomorrow it wont get done.
Tomorrow she will leave at 730 am and her surgery is scheduled for 12:30 pm.

It is the BM's day off tomorrow. We are going to try and ride together on the bridle path. Not sure if it will work out or not. I am able to ride a Haffie anytime I want but the shot clinic is tomorrow and the Haffie and my gelding are having the works done...Teeth sheath shots....And walla! Squeaky clean gelding's... So...if it works out cool.

I know I will feel totally anxious all day. I am supposed to go to my college class at 5:30 pm, but I want to see my girl first. The office said I should be able to come see her post op.

I will try and take a phone pic but not sure if it will work or not.
