It has been a stressful Wednesday but who's life is not. Gradually Maggies girls started to pick up the pace and take ever increasing eye droppers full of warm milk. The schedule did not leave much to get done but the outside farm chores. In the end it was worth the effort. At the time I am writing this the girls just finished 2 ounces each of warm milk using a bottle, have left me many potty presents and the washer is running a full load of towels and sheets. To some this may seem like dull work but when I open the bathroom door to those sweet faces and they run to me with their tiny tails straight up in the air - Well, what better purpose could I have!!
So now I have two girls yelling for my attention and getting into all kinds of playful trouble. Maggies is still screaming and searching for her babies which just breaks my heart but again today it was so bitterly cold that I could not risk any changes to the little one's schedules. If Mother Nature would assist I might consider returning them but I must weight their health and well being above my desire to this family back together.
I really want to thank you all for your thoughts, kind words and prayers. I know it does make a difference so I want you all to hug yourselves for the great job you gave these girls. Too bad you can't get in on the snuggles and bouncing around but I guess that is the part you miss when you are not sitting at 1 am on the bathroom floor.
Oh, better get the formula made because soon they will be up and demanding MORE! Once again THANK YOU
