Hi folks,Mikey & Ikey are hanging in there. They are currently sporting their new blankeys. They are gorgeous and just right for this weather we are having. Not sure if we will have to double up later or not, but they are amazing and "tri" adjustable.
It was about 36 this morning so it is so important that they don't use any energy just trying to stay warm to survive. They need the sunshine so this allows them to be outside. :)However, Mikey is really really struggling. Have been up all night with him as his cough has gotten worse. Started out just once in awhile when we first picked him up, but it is progressively getting worse. It is quite baffling, as he has no temperature and no discharge. PTL the vet is on top of his needs, but we need to buy some rather spendy antibiotics. He has been very uncomfortable and his breathing is elevated and often very stressed when he lays down. We are watching him (both of them) 24/7 but unfortunately we need to consider the fact that this could be why his momma quit feeding him. No one was sure if he was "mis-matched" with his momma after the auction but if something is going on inside that we cannot see, his momma might have realized it and that could be why she quit feeding him. On a good note though, he is eating and drinking non-stop. Both of them have great appetites. :) So we need lots of prayers, as neither of them have any reserves if they get sicker. We are praying that there are no kidney or liver issues and that both of them have healthy organs that are keeping up with their growth. Both boys have had one little spurt of energy (right after I put their new blankeys on) and aside from that both are moving very slowly. Part of this could be as their little legs improve, changes to their tendons and muscles can make them sore. It is so hard to see them struggling so much.Please send prayers for these wonderful little babies. They have survived nearly dying together and are bonded in a manner that I have never seen. When adoption time comes, it will definitely be a "two fer" package.Thank you for continuing to support these little ones as they fight so valiantly to get better. God bless all of you and I hope your day is wonderful.THANK YOU FROM ALL OF US!Matt, Palomino & The Gang
