Rosie update

well she managed to make it through the night and doesn't seem to have lost any ground.
She's eating a bit and alert, just can't move herself.

Thanks for all the kind thoughts. I'm hanging in there. Stressed, tired, emotional and in need of some serious hugs, but hanging in there.
Nadie offered to jump in the car and drive up here but I don't want her going through what I am.
ETA:
You know animals never cease to amaze me. Just when you think that you've figured them out, they do something to confound you.
Case in point:
Goats hate getting wet. Really really hate it... to the point where they will huddle in a complaining bunch under the meagre protection of the eaves, standing up all night, rather than sprint a few dozen yards to the dry goat house.
Last night it rained, and Rowan and Robbyn were shut out of their house [ Ruby was in there for company and because she would behave]
Rowan and Robbyn kept a drenched vigil against the side of the shed all night long, never moving more than five feet from Rosie's position.
who said goats are dumb animals?

We're still with you both and sending our prayers.

Still have you both in my thoughts.

Prayers and hugs continuing for you all....

Hugs Susan - wish I could deliver it in person.

And Rosie - you hang in there girl!

I have everything crossed for Rosie's return to good health (and I love your spinning - while I admire spinning deities - I aspire to be able to spin a bit and think you're doing a great job!)

Hope you and Rosie are doing ok. Good goats to keep her company. Animals may not be able to "talk" but they are not dumb.

Glad to hear she's still improving. Given Robbyn and Rowan's mutual dislike for one another it just goes to show just how intelligent and caring they are to maintain their vigil together.

Thinking of you and Rosie, hope you have better news soon....
