Hey everybody, I want to thank you all for your kindness! Sorry I have updated as fast as I meant too, it has been so so chaotic. Anyways, I went and saw her yesterday. They took her off the IV fluids, and all medications yesterday to see if she did good without them, they said if she did good without them there is a possibility she may be able to come home today *IF* she drinks well by herself, they still have her on hydration hay. So I am probably gonna go get a bag of Standlee Timothy/Alfalfa cudes for her since it is pretty much the same thing, but much more for my money. I am still trying to determine what caused the colic.. I keep replaying everything and going over everything in my head. And yet the only thing that I can come up with is maybe she ate some of her sawdust, ate her hay and grain and didn't drink enough therefor causing the feed to get stuck in the small intestine.. Who knows. I am very paranoid now. I want to do all I can to prevent this from happening again. I have never been so heart broken in my life until she was sedated and drugged up and her legs were quivering and starting to buckle and I was just standing there with my arms wrapped around her neck bawling and whispering to her, "don't give up, don't please." I am not religious, but that night I prayed and prayed and prayed. I needed a miracle. I truly did. Losing her would have really damaged me, most days she is my reason to get up and keep going. And the reality that I was so close to losing her, is so so painful. On another hand, I am waiting for a call from the vet to see how she is doing off the IV and meds, and if she can come home today.
Never let "good enough," be good enough.
