Hard weekend, but I made it through!
Tuesday, July 15, 2008
It's been a hard weekend. Had to take Falcao up to Phoenix to the vets office that's better equipped than any other down here. Found out the injury wasn't as bad as we thought, but by Friday still didn't know where he had injured his leg.
This morning (Monday) I found out. He has a soft tissue injury to his stifle (knee), and 2 bone chips in the same ankle.
SO tomorrow afternoon he goes into surgery to have the chips removed. They sometimes leave the chips in, but these seem to be irritating the joint. And since his job in life is dancing, they must come out.
Surgery for horses is easy until they wake up. So I will be on pins and needles until I find out that he woke up OK.
Exercise has been difficult, but I have gotten a little bit in, including Thursday right after getting home from Phoenix.
I wish I could be there for his surgery, but work prevents it.
I also have a workout with Karen tomorrow as well as a Pilates session. I have got to find more time to workout!
