I'm a terrible blogger because I didn't get any pictures of Lilly's SWT treatment yesterday. I had my camera in the ultrasound wing of the barn because I figured we'd do it there. Instead, she pulled Lilly out of the stall and did it right there in the aisle.
For the $360 it cost me yesterday, I wasn't impressed. She came out, gave Lilly a little sedative, got set up, and 5 minutes later we were done. It looked very similar to an ultrasound machine, but the wand on the end was much bigger and it made a very loud 'POP POP POP' sound. She just ran it over Lilly's bump until she had reached 2000 pulses and that was it.
I asked about treatment after the SWT and what the plan would be, and she said it would depend on what the ultrasound showed. That would be scheduled about 2 weeks after the last treatment, and if things look ok I can pretty much start riding right away. If not, well, she didn't want to talk about that unless we had to. Staying positive!
I'll definitely be ready next time with the camera so I can document some of the procedure.
One down, two to go!
It has been cold, cold, cold here!! We had a wind chill advisory last night and this morning it was only 21 degrees! I know that's balmy compared to the weather some of you are having, but darn it, I live in North Carolina!! We don't usually have temperatures this cold for this long, and certainly not in December.
I'm ready for milder temperatures... I'm sure they'll come just in time for me to drive up north to Michigan for Christmas.
