Thanks guys :)
I did put a mirror up in his stall and he is very happy looking at himself for half the day haha. He does get some horse patients that stay a day or two beside him so that keeps him way happier too. The vets are saying he's acting a little depressed because he is basically by himself a lot of the time. :(
But I do have another update! Guess things are going good still but the most critical part of his recovery is coming up this week. He is going in for surgery to stitch together the cut a bit...however the tendon he severed is gone forever. When he cut it, the tendon started dying off so he will never have a tendon on the front of his leg again. Not sure how I feel about this...I'm told he will preform perfectly fine it's just important to have during the healing process so he wont knuckle over. Anybody know about this? Everything I read says the tendon is either surgically re-attached or it attaches itself haha. I'm scared that they are telling me it's gone!!
So after they stitch it up a bit, they are going to cast it (he keeps opening the wound and such when he flexes his fetlock so it needs to stay closed to close and heal). He has to be under general anesthetic (a scary thing all by itself) so they are worried how he will do when getting up with a cast, not freaking out, not hurting himself, etc. Ughhh so much to worry about now! With his leg in the cast and the joint still exposed, infection is suppppper high. Basically they told me it will be do or die this week...literally. If there are no complications with the cast, it's looking like a really good recovery. If there are complications, he could get really sick really fast and his chances are slim.
There are just SO many factors that can influence if he'll make it or not - and I'm terrified. I hate waiting and not being able to do anything. Plus he's acting more depressed every day he is alone and not "home". I'm so scared he's not going to fight as hard as he has been. I feel like I'm back at square one and nobody really quite understands how much Robbie means to me. I can't think of ever losing him and now with this whole surgery and cast thing...it's a real possibility. :(
Please continue to keep my little baby in your thoughts, he needs it now more than ever.
Oh! And here's a pic of his cut from the other day. To me it looks freaking nasty, but the vets are saying it's healing and looking good! :)
