Thank you everyone who donated and sent me good wishes! I've had the operation and I'm getting much better now.
Thank you for caring about me!"
UPdate, September 8th 2008. Rioya is very well and enjoying being out in the field with the other ponies, something we thought would never happen at one point. After several Quantum Touch sessions on Rioya's leg before the operation, the surgeons were very surprised how good the joint looked and how well she recovered. I like to think I had something to do with that!
