I have mentioned the loss of my Uncle .And my mom has had some continued difficulties in hosp . She will not be coming home for a while. We had a meeting today , and the plan is for her to continue therapy in a transitional setting, then hopefully will be well enough to come home in 6 weeks or so .It is hard on her and very upsetting to all. But safety for her and dad in the home has to be the priority and right now she is still too weak.
Took Martin to the airport last night , and on the way home had the frightening experience of playing "dodge ball " with the wheel of a tractor trailer unit that had come off the truck! Not fun, and a nod to my fellow motorists on the road,Nice moves guys ! we all got out unscathed.
Got home to do chores , and whether it was the fact that I moved Dandy and Wilder, the neighbors peacocks running around in my yard again or just good old fashioned Sh*'thouse luck. The mares got all jacked up and started running around like lunatics in the field. Got them settled ,but not before , my sweet Comet ,hit a down tree, and gouged his chest!
I should mention here, that Quinn , took a corner too fast about a month ago and took a board off the fence with his chest , developing a large abscess on his chest . He has just nicely healed from that (and what an absolute darling to treat! ) and no Comet has a gouge in nearly the same spot! (different pen , different cause , but all the same , another injury to treat )
It is messy and a bit swollen from the impact , but all in all I believe we can clean it up and get him healed. As bad as it looks ,he is bearing weight and moving well ,only showing a slight limitation to forward extension at the walk.
This end as you see is still in fine form.
Walked out tonight to check the young girls , and found Cat(Catch a Dream) to be quite lame as well! no lacerations,heat or swelling , and did seem to "walk it off " some so I will keep an eye on her ,and maybe give her some bute as needed . Not entirely sure it isn't an abscess so we will see.
I have to admit when I saw her I had a moment of laughter, not that I find it funny , more like a little hysteria. I have had quite enough for a while thanks!
The cats seem well so far so hopefully all will settle into a sense of normacly soon . Yeesh!
Injured stock is part of the package as we all know , and as several fellow bloggers can attest , it never rains but it pours !. As the Maggie Muggins books I read as a child always ended "Well Mr Mc Garrity , I wonder what will happen tomorrow"
Yup I wonder too!
Stay safe and well
