UPDATE ON ANGEL
I tried to drain her on Monday and couldn't get anything out. I called the vet and he said we have gotten all of it out. What is left is scar tissue and it could take anywhere from 3-12 months for it to go away. He said the best thing to do is cold/warm compresses once to twice daily and massage the area to help it absorb and break down faster. I can start riding her slowly and give her Bute if needed. I have been flexing her the last couple of days and she seems to be doing fine. So I have started riding her in small intervals a couple times a day. Just bareback walking around and flexing, circles, just basic things to get her back into moving again. Next week I am going to start saddling her and working her alittle harder. Keeping my fingers crossed! Thanks for all your thoughts and concerns with my girl! I really appreciated it and it meant alot to me!! Have a great Thursday!!
