Everytime I watch her, I am amazed at how well she is doing. The 18 days she was at the hospital seemed like it was forever! She has only been home for 5 days, and I am telling you, we literally have to slow her down! The surgeon asked me to send him video (email) of her walking so he can adjust her therapy. He called me and was elated with her! He was considering using ankle weights on her if she would not use her leg, but he said "there is NO need for them, she is USING her leg and bearing weight on it better than he hoped for at this point and time"! He is also impressed at how she keeps her leg up under her, not out to the side when she is standing. He said what we are doing with her needs no adjusting. If she keeps going like she is, he said it might not take a full year for her to recovery!!!
Her she is motoring around "her green, green grass of home". I borrowed that from one of forum members posts! Thanks for looking....

Edited to add: I forgot to tell you she is on NO pain meds!

See how she keeps her leg up under her...

This is defintely good news and warms my heart to see that she is getting around so beautifully! She looks so serene and happy in her "green, green pasture at home".

She looks great Theresa
Keep up the good work, 'member can't let her get too heavy (I let Rose get too fat, and it definately slowed her progress down a bit).

Give Dreamer a big hug from us!

I was just getting ready to send you a pm to see how she was doing. I am soooo glad she is doing well. She will continue to improve fast now that she is home.

I couldn't see the videos, they keep asking for a username and password.

Big lump in my throat here watching the videos. Theresa, thank you again for sharing the drama, fear, excitement, frustration and absolute joy of Dreamers struggle. What an amazing little girl she is!

She looks truly wonderful. I'm so glad you posted video, it's so nice to see her walking around munching on grass. I know she is glad to be home as much as you are glad to have her home. I bet she will improve in leaps and bounds now with all the love she's getting.

Theresa-

She looks wonderful - how quickly she is recovering. What a good feeling it gave me to see her out eating grass and walking around. You and Art are doing a wonderful job with this little horse.

I'm with Stacy on the weight - I have to monitor Dawn all the time.

Keep us posted - talk to you soon.

Barbie & Dawn

What wonderful news! I was away for a few days and the first thing I did when I returned home after checking the critters was to check for your post!

Y'all done good!!!
