Daz has been hanging in there and has strung together a couple of good days. This Am was her last dose of Surpass. Here she is this evening.

I think she is moving better, too. How much turnout is she able to have now?

We are up to 25 minutes of hand grazing twice a day and then I rush home at lunch to bring her out for 10 min . After her evening walk I give her the option to meander for a bit. 

 

Starting just today I am letting her stay out of her stall in her paddock while I am doing chores...so tonight she got an additional 30 min out.

Can you tell yet whether the procedure was worth it?  Or is it too soon?

For our situation it was worth it. The day of her diagnosis, our girl wasn't ready to go. Her eyes were full of life and her spirit full of fight. We made the decision to try and as long as she was trying, so would we. This has definitely been a very emotional experience with ups and downs but I am grateful for the chance to fight along side her. We have shed tears and we have had laughs and we have cheered her on. I am always listening to her as we work through this. She still loves life and people. If anyone else faces this, know that recovery may be long, but listen to your horse and plan your treatment from there.

Just wanted to give everyone an update on Daz. I haven't posted in a while because this fall has been a roller coaster of ups and downs. Earlier this month she was back in the hospital for more diagnostics...she ended up getting a steroid injection in her hip area and started on gabapentin. While she was there a wonderful farrier built a special boot lift to make up the difference in her leg height.

 

We didn't see much difference in the first 2 weeks that she was back home but earlier this week she has started to really do well during her hand walks. We are taking it easy and are very careful since it is now winter in the North East but we are hopeful we have turned a corner and that she will continue to thrive.
