Really, really bad week!

First off I'd like to say Happy Easter to you all.
This has to be the worst week we have had in a long time. My grandson Josh's great horse,Ace,colicked and had to be rushed to OSU in Stillwater, Rachel couldn't get him there fast enough and he ruptured a gut and had to be put down. The vets there told her surgery wasn't even an option. Of course, it was hard on everyone. Josh wasn't with her and didn't even get to say goodbye and there was no way to get Ace's body back so we could bury him at home. Really tough.
This afternoon, Rachel called and told us Josh was at the emergency room, broken wrist. Riding an ATV fell off tried to catch himself and snapped it. Hopefully it will get set properly and heal with no issues. His baseball season is over, you all know that baseball is REALLY important to him. He can't go fishing, or turkey hunting either. I don't know yet how much physical therapy he'll have to do. Rachel broke her wrist in just about the same place, and she had to do a lot to not lose range of motion. Of course, he's a lot younger....
Anyway this has not been a good week for us. Remember Josh in your prayers, he has a lot on his plate right now, and has lost the one thing that might have helped keep his mind off losing Ace.

Oh crap, so sorry to hear about Ace. That is such a tragedy. Poor Josh, praying for you all. That is a scary situation.

I know a couple of weeks ago, Roo was down and I rushed him to the vet and he had a mild impaction. Scared the crap out of me, of course HD was working!

And then his wrist, goodness, hopefully the dark cloud has moved on. Hoping for a quick recovery.
