We were expecting a colt so Vicki was cleaning the stall. The rescue colt Gunny kicked her and broke her left arm. She stuck a stick under the cast to scratch and broke it off. she went to the doctor yesterday because it was swollen and hurting. There was no flesh where the stick was and gangrene has set in on her palm and lower thumb. Once tissue becomes necrotic (dead) it can't be saved. Her fingers are still warm and pink so hopefully they will be able save the hand and just remove what tissue died. She is in the hospital on IV antibiotics now. Please keep her in your prayers.

Prayers being offered for Miss Vicki to heal well. So sorry to hear of her new problems, though I'm sure she is happy with her new colt. Keep your chin up Bullfrog and just care for that wonderful woman.

I went up there yesterday but the doctor had already made his rounds so I didn't get to talk to him. Vicki has been on morphine for 3 days now so it's really hard to make and sense out of anything that she says. After 3 days, you begin to nod a lot and have very lucid dreams, it becomes difficult to tell the dreams from reality.

She told me, "Oh yeah, those MF's with the chicken heads on their fence aren't moving in with us."

"What?" I said. She began tossing a lot of cosmetics into a blue trash bag, "What are you doing?" I asked her. "I told you! I need to go to the store!" she shouted. "So why do you need to take all of that?" I asked. "Stop asking me questions! Everybody keeps asking me questions!"

I hope the staff sees this and weans her off of the morphine and I wish I had gotten to speak with the doctor. they do surgery on Sunday so that is a good thing, that they didn't rush her into surgery to remove the dead area. They are keeping up the IV antibiotics and vasodialators to increase the circulation, maybe they can save the tissue. I have to work during the week and with the privacy laws they won't tell you anything over the phone.

Oh my gosh, the poor thing. I know that stuff can really mess w/ your brain. I hope they can save everything including the tissue and I will keep her in my prayers. When this is all over and she is back well and good she prolly won't believe you about her strange talking.

she sounded a little better yesterday evening. I could actually understand what she was saying. We got Gunny a good home with an eight year old that want to rodeo eventually. They took him yesterday evening. Hopefully they will release Vicki Tuesday.

thank God, she's home now. They released her late yesterday evening. She put a light on the porch rail so she could see the colt. We sat out there till after ten but I have to go to work. She'll get to play with it today.

The discoloration is almost gone but she is now getting blisters like a burn so I told her to try and leave the dressing off of it. She lost the top layer of skin almost like a burn, it's healed but the dressing might be irritating the new skin.
