>This time last week there was absolutely no guarantee that my beloved Rosie was going to make it through the night.
She’s moving about with almost none of the hesitant stumble of a few days ago – almost – almost -steady on her pins and if you can believe it, has put on a wee bit of weight… the great hollows in her sides have almost disappeared.
Her eyes and gums are still white because the blood replacement stuff doesn’t work over night but she looks much much better
so all those good thoughts that you guys sent must’ve done some good, eh?
She’s not impressed with the B complex shots in the bum but otherwise all’s well and I can look forward to some sleep tonight.
little happy dance here
oh and one last thing – I believe that I did mention that we’d had an unseasonable cold snap – hence the goat coats – well, it lasted all week, mild but nice days around the low 20s but cold clear nights which I got to experience first hand, and in honour of the very last day of Summer, last night’s minimum temp was 4.5 degrees C and believe me, at 3am in a drafty goat shed, it certainly felt like it.
ETA Saturday morning 7am – well the thermometer says it’s currently 4.1 and the overnight low was 3.1 BRRR
