Aww, I remember when my horse foundered, I was out there all the time. And when he choked. in the middle of feb, I dont think I have ever seen a coat so shiney and silky smooth. I would just sit out there grooming him, hand feeding him his slop(the only way he would eat it) and taking him on short walks. From 7am to 11pm or later. I was so stressed, when I was sleeping, My body would just stay tense and I had trouble holding my bladder so I would be going pee 2 times a night. Ugghh! The worst part is, at the time we had no idea he was choking. And the moron vet told us it was COPD, and he ended up dieing on march 1st 2008, the beginning of a very bad year.

I know how you feel! It is Terrifying!
Just know that you have a smart vet to help you through this :)

She's doing good considering. It is still oozing a little bit, but the stitches are in tact. I've been walking her at least 4 times a day up until today (I'm working), But when I was walking her this morning, the BO asked if I wanted him to walk her around noon...which I thought was very very nice. So, she'll still get her 4 short walks in. I've been extending her walks by one short lap a day...just to try to keep her loosened up, and not have her lose so much muscle tone by just standing. I'm hoping to be able to walk her around the riding ring by the end of the week. It's just according how she acts when I get her up to 6 short laps a day *1 lap = approx 75 ft*. If she acts sore, I won't do it. Other than that, today is the last day of the antibiotics I have to put in her feed, about 4 more days of bute, and enough powder to put on it for the next week. I'm keeping positive that the results come back benign, and that my girl is well on the road to recovery.

Thank you guys so much for being so supportive. It means soooooo much to me!!!!!

The vet just called. He said that the preliminary report he got said that it was sarcoid like and most likely benign. I understand the benign part. But why would they say that it was sarcoid like? He's calling the lab to try to get a clear answer.

Oh, and he was supposed to come out this Thursday to take the stitches out. He had a death in the family though, and it's set for next Thursday now. I've been keeping her bedding as straw as opposed to shavings to try to keep the majority of dust down in her stall, and out of the stitches. She is doing really really well. There is no blood-like weeping anymore, and there is only a little clear weeping from one spot after I walk her. It's not puss-like, there's no swelling, and I'm still putting the powder on it after our walks. Do you guys think it would be ok to switch her back over to shavings this coming Thursday (when they were supposed to come out), or stick with the straw until they do come out just to be on the safe side? I have plenty of shavings, but only enough straw to last a few more days.

Thank you all for the prayers, thoughts, and well wishes. You've helped me keep a much needed, positive attitude through all of this!!!

So glad she is healing well.

I think as long as it is closed and scabbed over you should be fine going back to shavings.

Glad to hear it is benign. I am not sure about the sarcoid statement.
