Rachel Alexandra has a small setback this morning

Rachel Alexandra underwent a surgical procedure at Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital this afternoon to drain an abscess discovered this morning. Though her road toward recovery remains remarkable following abdominal surgery performed on February 13th, this is an important reminder that challenges remain.

 

Rachel Alexandra, bright with a good appetite after doctors at Rood & Riddle drained an abscess detected this morning.

“As part of the continuous evaluation and monitoring that Rachel is receiving at Rood & Riddle, an abscess adjacent to her reproductive tract and rectum was found this morning,” said Dr. Brett Woodie.

Rood & Riddle reported the abscess was drained successfully via a standing surgical procedure, throughout which Rachel’s vital signs remained normal. She was also bright and alert with a good appetite following this procedure and was even able to graze this afternoon.

While this type of hurdle is not unexpected, Rachel will remain at Rood & Riddle for continuous observation as she continues down what has been called “a long road” toward recovery.

Another update on her condition can be expected on Monday, March 11th unless a change in her condition were to occur sooner.

Hopefully that was her last setback, and her recovery goes smoothly from now on. Sounds like she once again handled it like a champ.
