A positive comment by a poster from The Player's fb page.  Fingers crossed he comes out of surgery well.  But need to hope and pray he recuperates well.  But....I'll take this!

Fernanda Camargo I just had a meeting with Dr Steve Reed from Rood and Riddle and he said that The Player's chances are really good for a successful arthrodesis. Of course we don't have access to his x-rays, but he even made a comment that this horse is lucky he likes to lay down so much. He went on to say that there are many stallions and broodmares with fused ankles that perform greatly and have an excellent quality of life. Let's all pray this guy comes out of that surgical suite well and easy!

Great news so far. Surgery went well and they have put a plate and 16 screws in his leg. This took well over 7 hours and getting up took another few hours(I did tell the vet he will stay down as long as he could).Dr. McCauley and his staff at LSU have done a wonderful job in a complicated surgery. I am a bit emotional after seeing him stand on his own and bearing weight on all 4 legs and then walking to his stall. Now we have to hope for no infections and that no laminitis sets in. Keep praying(its working)as he still has a long way to go. I will be back tomorrow to check on him. OH and he ate some peppermints!!
