Shockwave Starts

Prair had her first shockwave session this morning (and an accompanying cocktail.. I have yet to receive a cocktail today..). 

It was, as these sorts of appointments tend to be... boring.

No exciting diagnostics, no cool pictures to see what's happening, no drama or stress.  Just.... boring.

Which - if I had to pick is a good thing for vet visits to be, but I don't know, I like a little entertainment now and then.
(thump, thump, thump, thump)
So Prairie got 1000 "shocks" (not actually shocks, but a good term for the loud clicks) to her ligament, and another 500 shocks on either side where I've noticed muscle soreness hasn't entirely gone away.

It took about 20 minutes. Then the mare just had to stay in her stall and work off the sedatives before she could go play with her friends. 

Next session is scheduled in two weeks and we are back to work tomorrow.  (whee)

In other news I will probably attempt to see what my baseline is for the Two Point Challenge thingy.  I'm terrible at following up on stuff and even more terrible at contests so I'm not calling it an official entry but a good excuse to see where I am for sure.

  2. I think you should have a cocktail before you do the baseline ;)
