The DOR is home!

The DOR is home and doing well!
For those of you who didn't know, she had a minor heart attack July 6th and has been having some trouble since. She had a bunch of tests run and they found a blockage in her heart...she was a bit upset about that. She had a heart catheratization yesterday and is doing well. The blockage is now gone and in two weeks she should be back to full-speed. Right now she is one handed because they went into the artery on her right hand. She can't use the hand for a week (we will see how that goes, sometimes she isn't good at following directions). She has a small blood clot in her ring finger, so that is hurting her a bit.
She says thank you to everyone for their kind thoughts and prayer, they helped her though a very frightening time.
The ubber farrier was out, he says Harley's hooves are starting to change the way he wants them to and that he needs touch-ups every two weeks to keep things moving right. He taught the ranch manager what to do (the DOR can't do it right now), so he wouldn't have to have to come out every two weeks and charge the DOR-that was really nice of him.
Bryce, one of my support crew, brought the DOR to the ranch so she could see us. She can't be near us until some of the blood thinners were off. She was so happy to see us she started to cry, turns out that she was worried it would be a long-time before she would see us again. I guess that we are pretty important to her.
I am glad the DOR is home and so looking forward to start to starting her training up again. I have been planning some really good lessons.
Enjoy your day and don't forget to hug your DOR

That's a relief. How scary that must have been and I didn't know the entire story. Take care..rest and follow the doc's orders as difficult as that is when you are usually so active...

I hope your DOR gets better soon! I'm sure you missed her! I had chest pains this summer. Turns out it was a severe case of dehydration!
