That's terrible, I'm so sorry.
On a brighter note, at least you know that all the problems you've had with her aren't her fault, or yours. It was her condition. =|
Now comes the time where you decide if your willing to keep a limited horse or not. I know you love her, but you have to decide if you can make her life fulfilling, and not come to resent her for your having a horse you can't ride. I understand it's hard, and you need time to think about it, and, if it comes to it, there is nothing wrong with selling a horse in her condition, as long as you make sure any possibly buyers knows it exists and knows she cannot be worked. There are many, many people out there who may just want a good pasture mate for their horse, and would treat her well, or a non-riding person who just wants a horse around to groom and give treats too. It just takes some looking.
Good luck with her treatments, I'm hoping she comes out better than you think it will. Make sure you keep us posted. Give her a carrot and yourself a hug from me. =]
