The vet is apparently coming out tomorrow. She kinda sprung it on me on Friday, I had been wanting to get an appointment and she was like "well, I could come out on Monday!" so she's coming out tomorrow. But I'm worried. Lacey has never had an actual thorough going over with a vet in the three years I have had her, we didn't even get a prepurchase exam. They've quickly looked at her before giving her her shots but she's never been thoroughly looked over.
I guess I'm just worried that the vet will tell me she's legitimately going blind (she supposedly has "changes to her eyes" but I don't know what that means exactly), that her melanomas are going to kill her soon, or the vet will suggest doing bloodwork and we'll discover that she has Cushings, or that she has some other weird malady that means death to our current way of life.
Hopefully she'll be given a clean bill of health, I'm just a bit nervous about it. She's my baby and she's supposed to live forever (or, at least until she's forty, or I get married, have kids and she teaches them to ride, whichever comes first).
But I am trying to be excited about it, I find vet stuff to be absolutely fascinating so it should be cool to watch Lacey get all this stuff done (an exam, shots, and her teeth done). And the vet that's coming out seems really nice, so that's a relief.
So I guess, if you feel like it, think me and Lacey good thoughts tomorrow around 2 in the afternoon! We'll appreciate it. :)
