Just a quick update until we know more about what is actually going on with Chester...because I know my post yesterday seemed pretty glum/grim...which is was, and it was/is a reflection of how I am feeling.
I had a coffee this morning with The Boss and Graham...and speaking with them both, always ALWAYS automatically makes me feel better. Especially because we have a plan now and we know what has to be done...well, sort of.
We are going to take Chester up to the clinic where he will get some diagnostic imaging...this is the ONLY way we will know for sure what is going on with him. Depending on what the outcome of that is, will determine what happens next. As soon as I know when we are going, I will break the news.
For now, I am going to tip-toe around trying NOT to think about the ever dreaded 'what-if's' to preparing myself for the Worst Case Scenario...which ranges from Chester having to be a $400/month barefoot pet for 6 - 12 months in a field to having to sell him because - physically - he can't do what I need him to do. So, once again, I ask that everyone sends the good vibes our way...it would mean a lot to us.
Sigh - you can see just why I don't even want to try to think about it. In any event, he would make the nicest trail horse you have ever seen for someone...but, let's not go there.
