Definitely sending out prayers and good reiki for you.
I'm hoping he cooperates and recovers fully intact.

So sorry that he is having issues, hope that he comes through OK.

Just thinking out loud, could you collect and freeze him if (God forbid) he needs the amputation?

Can you leave the testicles and amputate the penis then collect somehow if you want to breed him?

I haven't thought that far ahead... I think before amputation you probably could, but I don't know about after. I have a few Reed babies due this year, so if he gives me an uber nice filly I might keep her... But I also hadn't planned on keeping any of them until I'm all healed up, either.
After this surgery it's at least another month, maybe two, of waiting time to see how he does. So I have until then to sort of... figure out my options.

Who EVER has to deal with penis amputation?! Like, really?

I would like to stay completely "Emo" about it, but I tend to drive everyone even more nuts when I do that.
Keeps a LIL bit sane...

So, Reed is home and in happy spirits. He's all sewed up and VERY happy that he has finally been approved for turn out, after two months of stall rest. He's very rambunctious and snotty but I guess I can't blame him.
He's got a 50/50 shot right now of recovering completely or becoming a gelding, and it's all a waiting game. Fingers crossed.
