    Its a beautiful day today. Will be inside, keeping our 2 year old grand daughter, she has fever and can't go to day care. I can show her the marigolds and zinnias we planted in peat pellets last week that are coming up. And I have another flat ready that we can plant today. Gotta get the gardening bug in them! The 4 year old loves the zuchinni candy and fruit roll ups I make from zuchinni, so she loves to plant the big seeds and pick it.

    Good morning everyone! I hope everyone had a better weekend than me I went on to the Barnyard Saturday morning to the screaming cry that sendx a chill down the back of any goat owner coming from one of my doelings. that repeated high-pitched cry that usually means enterotoxemia and sends you running for the antitoxin. by the way if you don't have and I talked to him put it in your fridge it is a small price to pay.
    Treating her quickly with the antitoxin and banamine. There followed a period of peace and then a return to symptoms within a few hours prompting a second dose of the antitoxin and oil to be administered. A few hours later I'm wondering if I'm dealing with something like brain swelling because she had gotten her vaccines and disbudded on Thursday so I treated with dexamethasone while I'm waiting on the vet. The vet finally got home about midnight so 1 in the morning I'm at the vet for IV treatments with fluids dextrose, vitamins, dmso, and more dexamethasone plus two other drugs. all day Sunday was every hour with a syringe trying to get a little bit of milk into her. 10:30 last night we did another round of ivy and tubed milk.
    This morning even though she is dam raised was finally able to get her to take a little bit of milk from a bottle avoiding the syringe feeding. lAittle bit ago she was to be able to handle a very wobbly stand up on her own with help for the carrier. Praise and thanks to the Lord the author of Life in The giver of good gifts.

    This will cost me a go with compassion International for someone in need but I am glad to pay it. My farm name is triple sure cuz when I get triplets sign spend the money for the one baby to buy a goat for a family overseas. I also I'm going to do it for him saving this little girl for me because she's fantastic.

    it was about enough to make me cry and I just trying to worry for the Doling, but this was supposed to be my break weekend. it was my first weekend without a kidding since January 31st. I had this vain hope I might actually get some rest.

    Yeah well, seeing that I drive a semi for a living and work about 60 hours for the week locally rest is something that I could use. This was my rest weekend in theory.

    Well, she's all wobbly but for the first time since Saturday afternoon she's up on her own, and we have bowel movement! :woot
