  1. As requested, today I received the notes and...

    As requested, today I received the notes and records, a final invoice for $1250 for the second operation, and a lock of Elliott's hair.

    The report corroborated the story told to me by the surgeon...
  2. I had a consultation with an attorney. He told...

    I had a consultation with an attorney.

    He told me I can get Elliott's records and notes from the clinic and send them to an independent expert vet in another area of the country if I want answers...
  3. When my grief comes, I am supposed to stay with...

    When my grief comes, I am supposed to stay with it , instead of suppressing it to rage and hate.

    I did that tonight when my mind started replaying his phone call to tell me Elliot had died.
    ...
  4. I haven't really decided to sue anyway. I am...

    I haven't really decided to sue anyway. I am waiting for more information from the clinic to come to me. I had hoped the vet and I could just work it out, but he told me he can't, because that...
  5. My vet does not have to back me up on anything. ...

    My vet does not have to back me up on anything. That would not be appropriate, anyway. All she has to do is say what her scope showed when she gave the emergency tracheostomy, and what her scope...
  6. That must be why he wanted me to accept a free...

    That must be why he wanted me to accept a free donation horse from him. Then that action would indicate that is all that I thought Elliot was worth in dollars.

    He also was pressuring me to put...

    Thank you. Yes I know I would rather be enjoying music than thinking about this.
  8. I am still waiting for the notes and records on...

    I am still waiting for the notes and records on Elliot to arrive. When they do, the equine attorney will assess them and write something up to get started. He may just send a letter or file...
  9. It really makes me mad because when I took Elliot...

    It really makes me mad because when I took Elliot in to the surgeon's clinic I specifically said to him please check Elliot's nose for cysts or something because I think he has a secondary condition...
  10. This article explains Arytenoidal Chondropathy,...

    This article explains Arytenoidal Chondropathy, which is why I think the operations were both the wrong things to do to Elliott, and why they ultimately led to his death.
  11. I think the vet has a lot more to lose than I. ...

    I think the vet has a lot more to lose than I.

    Keeping this vague, there is a case online he lost. My take away from it was the vet made a wrong operation on another horse without first exercising...
  12. Thank you guys for all the ideas and support. It...

    Thank you guys for all the ideas and support. It is helping me cope and have insights on the situation.

    On a personal level, a healer told me to keep feeling my grief and try not to let it turn...
  13. I can't afford to dig up Elliot. I don't know...

    I can't afford to dig up Elliot. I don't know that I would get any answers or that it would matter.

    I probably can not afford to sue. I will find out soon how far I can go. It was enough to...
  14. Yes I especially would have thought Elliot was...

    Yes I especially would have thought Elliot was high risk because when I called at 1130am the day of the second surgery to see how it had gone, they said he was still operating on Elliot. In the past...
  15. The admitting vet told me they would monitor him....

    The admitting vet told me they would monitor him. But the owner surgeon vet said later, when I asked for the videotapes of Elliott's stall and surgery notes, that they don't make tapes and his...
  16. thank you. It just kills me that I did not go...

    thank you.

    It just kills me that I did not go to the vet school where my friends had their roaring surgeries done.

    My local vet just swore up and down that this one was the "best roaring...
  17. The surgeon vet just called and wanted to give me...

    The surgeon vet just called and wanted to give me a small donated horse and to get paid for the second surgery.

    I said no I wanted to be refunded my money and to be reimbursed for my horse.

    He...
  18. I had a gut feeling I was being lied to when I...

    I had a gut feeling I was being lied to when I the vet called at 8am Monday morning saying my horse had just died.

    I called a friend who was already on high alert about my horse's situation. ...
  19. Several vets have already said this death was...

    Several vets have already said this death was implausible. There was a trach hole he could breathe through. There was another hole to breathe through from the new surgery that had not closed up...
  20. I want to share more of what happened. I have a...

    I want to share more of what happened. I have a feeling suing is in order, but it may not financially pay off since it may be hard to come up with Elliott's value. He was given to me and I had not...
  21. I do believe that the second surgery should not...

    I do believe that the second surgery should not have happened due to the collapsed and swollen airways from the first operation. It is frustrating because my local vet had told me he may need a...
  22. Thank you. I try not to feel guilty for putting...

    Thank you. I try not to feel guilty for putting Elliot through the elective surgeries responsible for his death.

    I downplayed my wonderful Elliot here because I did not want this to be my...

    Elliot had the surgery Friday.

    The vet told me it had gone as expected with no surprises. He had put another trach tube in as well. It had taken longer than he thought to make this a horse I...

    Thank you thank you for letting me know about these successful surgeries.

    I had found the above link and wondered if...
  25. Thank you... the vet called and said the tieback...

    Thank you... the vet called and said the tieback did pull through and fail. Now he says the choices are to do a right aretenoidectomy at a discount of $2500 or leave him be because he thinks the...
