Thunder has to go for surgery :(

Thunder is my 2yr old 3/4 Morgan X 1/4 Appy. He was gelded about 3 weeks ago and we noticed that the one side of his scrotum sack was not losing any of the swelling in it. When we called the vet to check it out it turns out that he has a really bad infection in the tube that attached to his testicle We are lucky because he wasn't showing any signs of being sick yet so we caught it in time. Unfortunately he has to go into the hospital to get the infection surgically removed on Sunday.

Dear Thunder,

I am so sorry that you have a boo boo and need an operation. I will tell your mom to give you as many carrots as you can eat to aid in your recovery. I had a similar boo boo when I lost my manhoods, and it will be ok.



Spent a whole hour today laying in a pasture, waiting for a sparkling vampire to show up. Alas, I woke up and looked over, only to find a mound of horse crap. Sigh.

Dear Lazarus,

Thank you so much for the support. I really appreciate it . Both my mom and grandmom treat me like a king and are taking really good care of me. It is nice to hear that someone else has gone through the booboo that I'm going through and is fine. It gives me hope

Thanks so much.

Aww, that sucks. At least you caught it in time! Here's hoping for an easy-peasy surgery and a speedy recovery! =]
