    Angry For crying out loud!!! It's true - When it rains it pours!!!

    So... I spent a good portion of last night in the hospital for abdominal pain. Rich was amazing and was with me all through the poking and prodding and (*yikes*) bloodwork.
    I got sent home at 11 last night and told to come back this morning (Saturday) for more tests.
    So I was at the hospital at 7:30 am for more testing.. no sooner had I gotten a room in the ER than Rich's phone rings; it's my barn owner - she only calls Rich if she can't get a hold of me and it's an emergency... She tells me that Denny has cut his back leg really badly, and she's getting the vet out - will call back with details later.
    So after ultrasounds and getting poked and prodded more, and after a 5 hour wait, the doctor comes in and tells me I have a cyst - a very large one - and that's giving me all the pain. Tells me there's nothing to do but wait on it and follow up .. and oh yea if I start vomiting and it gets super bad, then the cyst has burst and that's when it's an emergency.
    Great.
    So I just got home from the hospital, found out my horse is on stall rest for another month or so to get his back leg healed (!) and that it's pretty serious.
    Oh, and on top of that.. the injury happened last night! and someone didn't notice!!!! What the heck?!?! How can you NOT notice something like that?? Appearantly it's pretty bad, pretty deep, and into the tendon. Yay.

    I'm now sitting at home Tylenoled to the nines and... just... wow.

    Aw I am so sorry, for both your health woes as well as Denny's! How on earth does that horse keep injuring himself? I know he's all hot to trot now that's he's at a healthy weight and feeling happy, but is he just having a dance party in his stall or something?

    I really hope you feel better soon, and that Denny stops having your vet on speed dial.

    Girly im so sorry!!! **Gives you a cookie :(**

    That must have been super scary at the hospital....I can't imagine! So they're not doing surgery on the cyst?

    Gives poor Denny a big kiss on the nose.....oh and a cookie too :(

    Both of you get better :(

    Thanks FS

    What I don't understand is that my horse was brought into the barn for the night and turned out again in the morning and nobody mentioned his leg!! My barn owner saw him at around 10 am and freaked out, called the vet, and called me... nobody had said anything to her!!!
