We brought Angel home this morning along with her filly and her medicine chest. Poor girl has to have shots and banamine in the mornings and pills, probiotics, and Maalox at night but she is home.

Her first project when she got out of the trailer was to try to wobble to her stall. Then she had to give her buddy a quick bite on the end of his nose so he would Know she was home and still wouldn't tolerate any nonsense.

The filly just wanted to run,and run, and run some more. She was stalled with mom for a few days and really needed to stretch her legs.

Angel seems to be feeling much better, just nibbled her grain and hay today but wanted her carrots for the first time in a week!

The vet said she is not out of the woods yet but he thinks the worst is behind her. He told me to expect a long recuperation time and that we would not know for several weeks whether or not the wobbly gait is permanent.

He did tell me to go ahead with one more shot for each of the other horses. That will mean 3 shots instead of 2. He also told me NOT to give any to Angel till next spring but he wants to vaccinate the baby at 2 months instead of 3 in case she didn't get any immunity from her mommy.

Angel is still weak and tonight had a panic attack. The vet told me that might happen so I was prepared for it but she was so scared it took us quite awhile to calm her down. Poor girl was shaking she was so scared and was calling the baby constantly even though her nose was on the baby's back.

It is going to be hard but I feel a lot more optomistic now. At least I can hug her without having to worry about the IV. We'll just have to take it one day at a time and be extremely thankful that we have that day.

Thanks for all of the prayers and support, it means more than I can say.

What a happy/sad post!

Happy that Angel is well enough to come home......but I almost got tearful reading about her panic attack! I hope those go away for her quickly.

This has to be absolutely nerve shattering for you; but Angel is where you can watch over her yourself and give her hugs whenever either you or she needs them. Much better than having such limited time with her while she's in the horsepital. Good Luck With Your Girl!!!

Angel has an Angel of her own, and her name is Mary. I already said so in my email, she's in the best hands. I'm glad she's home! Hang in there Mary, I know how hard this is for you. {{{{Hugs}}}}

Still sending prayers

I understand that there is still a long road to walk, but with you by her side I just bet you she makes the trip to full health safely.

Blessings to pretty Angel, her lovely baby and her 'humans'.
