So much news.. so little time!
First and foremost, I took JB in yesterday for his post op xrays. This was the first time he has been out of the stall in 2 months. I wasn't sure how he would behave but he was perfectly calm and relaxed. I think he was just happy to get out and see something new. The xrays show that everything is healing nicely and the bone fusion looks very very good, with no extra calcium build-up around the joint (indicating irritation). Dr Erfle was very impressed with not only how the fusion looked but also how JB was moving on the leg. The best news is that JB can probably be moved out of the stall and into a 24 x24 area now and begin handwalking , but my vet wanted the surgeon to review the radiographs and give his nod of approval on that first. So I am waiting to here back on that.
I didn't realize how much I was living on pins and needles until seeing those radiographs. It's like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders.
The second big newsflash, big for me atleast , was that Maggie and I completed the 35 miles at the Thompson River Ranch Ride successfully.
Ride story and pictures coming soon.
