So good to see him! He really looks great. Dr. Chuck McCauley and his staff at LSU have done a wonderful job taking care of the big boy. Still has a way to go but going in the right direction.

Very cool! Continuing to hope for the best.

A lot of folks inquiring about him, but I haven't seen any official announcements yet. Hope he's okay.

The NYRA database just lists it as a racing injury, for what that is worth.

Thanks for that bit of info on Fayeq. They've not shared much but glad to not be reading worse. Fingers crossed.

Looks like he's gained a little weight too. :) From Facebook:

Great picture of The Player outside for the first time since being at LSU. I just love how he has fought to do this. Dr. McCauley said that he is doing so much better and cast sores are healing and he is walking better. He is very happy with him and his continued improvement. Angus favorite colors are purple and gold. GEAUX TIGERS!!

The cast looks a little the worse for wear. I wonder if he occasionally chews on it like a dog. :lol:

NYRA database now shows Fayeq as "Fx cannon-surgery-to be retired".

Weekly Update:
The Player is still hanging out in LSU’s Tiger Country of Baton Rouge LA. Dr. McCauley did change antibiotics on him this week and hoping for a bit more improvement as he thought maybe the one antibiotic was not total kicking the infection. I just talked with Dr. McCauley and he told me The Player was walking much better than last week which may be due to the new antibiotics. He grazed him this morning and said he loved getting out. We will post pictures when I get some and as always we appreciate everyone’s concern, support, prayers and well wishes. I read them all!

I do think about this guy everyday and I hope he kicks the hell out of this infection and gets home with his people sooner than soon. Gotta be very hard on them in the meantime.
