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.
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.
