After 2 calls & Veronica not available, I spoke with Heather who took my pledge.
Let me just say that they are very impressed with the response from this group & how quickly everyone here steps up when the need arises.
So, to everyone here who supports this wonderful Rescue/Sanctuary whether it is financial or emotional, this is the best group ever. Heather says they have never seen anything like it.
I get very choked up over this as it takes me back to the night of Nellie. Rob ad I driving in and figuring we were gonna do the surgery cause it was the right thing to do. We knew that we would probably be making payments for a long time but again the right thing to do. We had to give her and her unborn foal a chance. We only had 33 percent chance of survival but 33 percent was better than 0.
I remember putting my CC on the counter and maxing it out just to get started, figuring well, here we go "It is what it Is". We weighed the risk and took the chance. But Nellie had so many in her corner, we were just truly amazed.
She had the best surgical team, and the best Post Op team, but to no avail.... we lost this beautiful girl less than 24 hours after surgery and her precious one she carried. I never felt so alone that night talking with Dr. Schur who was so compassionate and understanding while she explained it all to me. But she said it was for the best.
Then after all your help with her, the next hardest thing was to tell you all. But we thank you for being there.
Stephanie and Rob
