    I got home before the kids and headed out to the barn. Her temperature had risen..but only to 98. I agreed I would not make any decisions without discussing it with the kids. So we decided to make her a pen in the basement, because even with the 2 heat lamps and an enclosed stall..and 2 blankets..it is a little warmer in the basement. She is currently settled in our basement, with both children doing their homework by her side. .. her temp just hit 99.8 and she has been eating since we settled her in there..including trying to steal the kids chips! However, she is still very weak. Every time I think it is time to throw in the towel..she surprises us and rallies again. She is a fighter!!

    The last 2 mornings she has seemed like she wasn't going to make it through the day. I give her her 6 ml shot of Vitamin B, 5 ml Probios and 20 ml of Nutridrench. By the time the kids got home yesterday and today..she had her head up and was looking around for them. And she was eating hay. The kids are insisting she is looking for something. But she is still weak. Any thoughts? Her temp keeps dropping and staying in the upper 90s. I am thinking we are nearing the end. But she is still perky and trying to eat and does not appear to be in pain. The vet had also called in Prednisone for me to try as well. I am wondering if I should go pick that up as one more last ditch effort.

    20190107_190023.jpg This was yesterday after we moved her into the basement and she had been eating for a few hours. 20190107_163827.jpg The bottom photo is how she was acting for the few hours before her nap with her "mom"

    We lost Camilla this morning. She is eating buckets of banana peels with the Angel's now. We are taking her for a necropsy to see if we can find out what was going on.
