Daisy Update

Some slight improvement in our girl’s status, just enough to give us some hope. She is showing some interest in food, so I’ve begun feeding her some probiotics to help buffer all the antibiotics. Also making sure she’s getting her kelp. She’s milking a bit better, too, indicating that she is both eating and drinking again. She helped herself to the salt lick last night, too, which is the first act of self-care we’ve seen in ten days. Breathing seems just a little bit better, bloat seems just a little bit less, and we’re starting to feel a little bit like we make it.

We’re thanking God for these small improvements and praying for a full recovery! Fatalities from blackleg are near 100%, so recovery will be no small thing.

About Jennie Cooper

I'm the mother of eight children, the wife of a retired soldier, and a newly minted farmer. I spend my days fairly productively, home educating our children, raising large quantities of food for several families, and volunteering in our community. I read entire novels a page at a time in the comfort of my bathroom. I tell people I'm Catholic just because they find it so shocking. I think there's nothing so exciting as a thunderstorm coming in. It doesn't bother me at all that my dog barks outside my bedroom window all night. And I rather enjoy being 40. I didn't think I would, but 40 is pretty good.
