Did I speak too soon?

I posted earlier today that it seemed Rugby had the worst behind him and he was slowly progressing toward getting better. Well, tonight I was hit with a call from the vet that he was down in his stall on his side. I went to see him and made him get up so I could walk him. Unfortunately he was showing some of the discomfort signs he'd exhibited in the past when his condition was really bad. The vet gave him a dose of Banamine and that's all we will do. We put him in a larger stall for tonight and we'll see what happens.

I'm shot. I can't do this much longer. Monty died and took all the good luck with him. If I lose Rugby too, I am finished.

This should so not be happening to you. I hope Rugby gets better soon and never has another sick day in his life.

I am so sorry. No matter what happens, you are keeping his best interests at heart, and that's what he needs you to do.

You are not finished! You are tough, and will get up and get on with life. In the meantime, find someone to give you a good hug! You deserve one.
I hope that Rugby makes it ok.
