I've been thinking on how to word this "update" on Elliott and honestly there's just no good way to put it. We were hoping that the anti-inflammatory component of the doxycycline (Lyme disease medication) would help his back, but it's just as sore as ever. My vet had me start him back on Robaxin (muscle relaxer) today, hopefully it will bring him some relief. We also decided that no riding is going to be best for now. He has a MagnaWave appointment on Saturday, and acupuncture hopefully soon. I'm trying my best not to jump to conclusions, but we had some high hopes for the rest of the year and your continued prayers are so appreciated.
No, it's not about showing. It's about my horse getting better. I'm about to run myself into the ground trying to afford the best care for him. But when you work your tail off and things finally start to come together before crashing down, I'm hoping and hoping we can make things work.
