Henny is doing amazing. His eyes are no longer twitching and he's walking a lot better. He's nosy as usual, trying to help the vet change his IV bags, and helping her clean up the millions of piles of his poop. He's eating like it's going out of style, drinking, and peeing like a russian racehorse. He's actually getting so into his hay bag, that they've had to rewrap the bandage over his IV cause he keeps loosening it. The vet said his attitude is incredible.
The vet said "It's getting to the point where what I can do for him, you can do." So Henny will hopefully be coming home soon! He'll still be on steroids(I believe) and some bute. As far as recovery time, there's not telling how long it will take. He said one horse took 3-4 months to recover. And as far as recovery, there will be some permanent quirks. At best, his left ear will always droop and one of his eyes will always look down a little. For gross motor function, it's too early to tell if he'll get back to 100%. I swear, I love this little boy so much. I don't care if his ear droops, or he can't see as well, or I may never be able to ride him. I care about him. All I want is for him to be comfortable and happy and healthy. I'll be going out to visit him again in the morning. Thank you all so much for your prayers and thoughts. It means so much to me and Henny.
