To ride dressage is to dance with your horse, equal partners in the delicate and sometimes difficult work of creating harmony and beauty.

Sorry if this is getting old...

...but blogging about Lance's medical drama helps me keep track of what is happening when. It also gives me something to "do," when there's nothing I can really do....

Rick came home over the noon hour to do the lung wash so he could overnight all the samples (nasal swab and blood as well as fluid from the lung lavage) today. This time he used some lidocaine in the tube so Lance would be more comfortable and not cough so violently, and it worked.

While we waited for Rick to get everything ready, I gave Lance a good grooming. More hair came off my poor, balding horse....


I was hoping to ride today, but when I finished up some necessary chores it started raining, then Rick came home. After the procedure Rick thought it best to give Lance the day off, so we'll shoot for tomorrow.

Oh Michelle, Big Hugs, I so understand the worry and feeling of helplessness. Fingers crossed that for better or worse, you have a diagnosis.

I like being kept up to date! He really is losing more hair. So sorry you guys still don't have answers but I hope you are getting closer!

Don't apologize. Keep writing!

More hair - I'm so sorry. You must be freaking out. I so hope that Rick and his colleagues can figure this out soon. I know they are doing their best for you (and for Lance).

oh my gosh...I am sorry I have been absent as I would have held your hand through this.
