Very Exciting day today. My big girl is being released from New Bolton after being critically injured in a barn fire. She has done remarkably well, and 6 1/2 weeks after the fire has a lot of new hair growth, has maintained her weight and is a happy, recovering horse. Yippeee!
The doctors and staff at NBC did an amazing job....they gave a tragedy a happy ending.

Thanks everyone. She has settled in nicely and was actually able to go out in the paddock for 90 minutes (before the sun came out!). She looks great and has a wonderful attitude!

Absolutely wonderful! I've seen human burn victims and worried that your mare would have the infections and skin problems that often occur with burn injuries. Your mare must have had great care at the hospital to be able to survive her injuries.

Suki was in ICU the entire time, with heay duty antibiotics, excellent pain management and constant attention. She never experienced any of the complications that I was warned about. Absolutely amazing...the care was phenomenal. She still has some healing to do, but we will keep on top of it. I cannot say enough about the level of care that she received at New Bolton. I feel so fortunate that she was able to receive such great care.

Yay! I know many people were devastated to hear of your horse's burns in this fire. Glad things are looking up. NBC is great and aren't we lucky to have them geographically convenient? Congratulations.
