    Talking A True Miracle!!!

    My mare Bella (28 years old) was recently given a few months to live, and then took a real turn for the worse. I was planning on putting her down this week, because she has melanoma tumors on her rectum area, and she has major lameness issues in her front right leg, which I was told was causing her pain. I struggled with this decision, because she didn't seem ready. I have never been religious but I prayed every night to be given more time with my mare (whom I've had for 15 years). I have my mare at a friends house, and she called me yesterday saying that her tumor had "popped" and said the vet would be there today to look it over. I feared the worse, and prepared myself for a hard choice. I got there, and my mare, for one, wasn't limping! I asked if anyone had given her bute or something, and no one had. Then my vet had checked out her tumors. ****GRAPHIC**** Black ooze was was coming out and I of course I was crying... he asked why and was actually smiling! I thought he was being insensitive! He then told me not only was this a good thing, he'd checked the rest of her tumors! They shrank! He said that this will buy her some more time. Then I asked about her leg (now I got a diagnoses from my farrier not my vet which was stupid of me) He flexed it a bit, and felt her pastern... She's fine, its arthritis! She's in no pain because of her leg! So I thanked God, and my vet. I now have A little more time with her, and he told me that I may have a year or more!!!!! And that she's not lame and even healthy enough to do light riding considering she'd been ridden up until I was given this diagnoses. I am in awe! I doubt I would really ride her, but just to know that she is sound enough. That I have more time with my baby! I had to share my happiness!!

    My fiance is a photographer, and he has been taking pictures every time we go up, and I know he will continue to do that for me. I am so blessed to have this time with her.
