ORPHAN UPDATE! PTL Everyone is still here with us this morning. Was so beyond grateful and happy when our wonderful neighbor brought us homemade soup for lunch. We have been up literally since last Tuesday, (and so is EVERY OTHER orphan foal mama), but it does get you a bit rummy and lazy haha.
MAVERICK - still fighting. He is so obviously planning on staying in this world. It seems like the vet was correct, and the gunk in his lungs was just so thick she couldn't hear it. We used the Vibra VM on him, and afterwards you could start to hear the stuff. (He LOVES the setting that opens up the airway. He will literally bury his nose in the cup on that setting).
SHANNY - Her pneumonia is horrible. All of them are on meds under Doc's orders, and she also LOVES that setting on the machine. She too will seek it out and bury her nose in the cup.
PRINCESS - Unfortunately, it appears that she is fast following her siblings to full on Pneumonia. She also is on treatment per Doc's orders, and getting the breathing treatments.
All 3 of them feel horrible, but are hanging in, thanks most likely to all of your prayers.
FLASH - Still feeling wonderful and loves his mommy already and may have a chance at hooking up with a nurse mare. Always that flash of, awww, I want him here, but that lasts about 1/2 half a second. There is NOTHING like having a real mama and if we can give him that, there is not a chance on earth that we would not do so. So prayers for that amazing possibility.
Please continue you your prayers, because GOD IS THE ONLY REASON that we are able to save some of these babies.
