Daisy Today

The vet has just left here and neither one of us is feeling very good right now. Over the last day and a half, Daisy has been having trouble with her hind legs and she is in increased pain. Lots of gas still in her intestinal tract and some kind of nerve damage from the blackleg, we must guess. Steroids would help with the legs, but it would also give a boost to any remaining bacteria, so we must wait as long as Daisy can wait. The vet also gave her something for the pain, which will help with build up of endotoxins from the dying bacteria, too. Poor Daisy just can’t catch a break here. ๐Ÿ™

St. Isidore, pray for us! St. Brigid, pray for us! Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us!

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.

    Oh Jen, I am so sorry. I will keep hoping she will get better. With all the love and prayers coming her way, it has to help.
    Love you
