    Oh for Pete's sake. Stop scaring yourself by reading those dang abstracts: really too little detail and too much scare there! And just glance over those horror story posts now popping up here. It's like going to a baby shower and all the mom playing x +1 storytime (my childbirth horror story will beat the one you just told).

    You mare is doing well and so is baby. She's in great hands and the COTH jingles army is at your beck and call. Lets get your mare, baby and you through this one day at a time!

    Cheers and jingles sent.

    I second this post. Just focus on your mare's and foal's well being and trust your vets' care. Take one step at a time and remain very optimistic for the best outcome. Again sending many well wishes to you, your mare and her foal, too.

    Sending jingles for a speedy and uneventful recovery! Please update us when you get the chance, I am sure you have your hands full and are exhausted.

    No kidding, I think we all could do without the detailed story about the mare's incision ripping open, jeez!

    OP, it sounds like your mare is holding in there well and we are all crossing fingers and toes that she continues to make a full and quick recovery!

    Update: First the foal, Brilly...she is doing well. VERY bored being stall bound but is nursing well, friendly, active. She has a small swelling in her right rear limb that they feel is a blood vessel that is "swollen" (similar to a vericose vein). We are going to keep it wrapped with pressure for a few weeks and see if that resolves it. She is sound, not painful and there is no heat so I think (hope) that that will resolve.

    My mare...she is clinically doing well. Her appetite has improved, not normal, but better. She was very interested in the carrots I brought with me last night as those are her favorite food item. That was a good note. Her incision is also healing well. However, she has some elevations of her liver enzymes that are concerning. I was hoping she would come home today but they want to monitor her a few more days to see what happens with her liver enzymes. We are hoping it is just a transient problem post "toxic shower" that occurs with colonic torsions.

    So all in all I think things are going as well as can be expected. I hope to bring them home on Friday and actually let this poor little filly run in her pasture for the first time in her short little life!

    Thanks for everyones well wishes and I will certainly keep everyone posted on their return home.

    Thanks everyone! They are home but the trip was a nightmare to say the least. Got a flat tire on the way. Thank goodness for US Rider. Then on the way home there was a tree down across the entire road to my house. Had to back up the trailer about 1/4 mile until I found a place where I could turn around. Then my truck just clicked into 4WD and would not come out (did this once before) so I limped home the rest of the 10 miles going 25 miles/ hour.

    But they are home. My mare looked a little colicky after eating her grain but now seems fine. I will be up watching them on my stall camera 24/7...this is worse than foal watch

    Filly is gorgeous but has some abnormality of an arterial vessel...see post lateral metatarsal arterial aneurysm.

    If I could take a 24 hour watch shift to give you a break I would. What a nightmare. At least she's home and eating again.

    Ouch! A huge relief that you made it home. Continued jingles for mare and foal to settle in, relax and recovery.

    Continued jingles for you, your mare, and Brilly! You've definitely been through the mill here lately. Things can only improve from here on out.
