I'm really glad the swelling has gone down. It's really scary when we know something is wrong with our babies and can't be there to see or help them. Luckily mine are in a place that I can go to anytime. When Rose had her surgery, the BO actually offered to let me stay in thier house so I could go down and check on her periodically instead of having me driving out every couple of hours or staying there in my trailer. If it is an allergy, maybe you can see if the vet can give you something to help. I have a couple of friends who have their horses on daily allergy supplements. GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!

I know I keep posting after the fact, but I was swamped with exams this week so I didn't get a chance to post this.

On Wednesday my mum called me to say that Coco's face was swollen again (she is back home), but she couldn't get a vet appointment till Monday which isn't a huge deal since Coco isn't in pain and we may just end up getting told the same thing so we decided to get out vet in touch with the school vet to swap information so things don't get repeated. I still haven't heard the results of the blood test, but if there was anything I believe our vets know now (I think they faxed everything to my home vet yesterday). I went down not 30 minutes ago to check on Coco and her face is swollen just behind the jawbone, under her throatlash, down her neck, and rather swollen up to her poll.

Edit;; I forgot to mention that Tuesday she ended doxycycline so it's odd the swelling came up on Wednesday maybe just coincidence since she has been on deoxy a lot and its not a infection :/
