Olivia & Wynonna Update

For those who have sent me emails to find out how she is doing - She is Hanging In!! Wednesday she was very sad and was not her normal self - who would blame her but she has to keep up her spirits and eating. So I went and cut her slices of pear and placed it in her bowl along with wheat germ oil drizzled over it. This was eaten quickly and a small smile came over her or was that gas??? Either way she is still nursing Opal, still getting up to walk around and seems to be tolerating the splint. I know she so wants to be out of the pen but I know my girls and it just would not be safe. Opal also is antsy to be playing with the others but when I took her out of the pen for play time Olivia went nuts.. So in order to keep Mom calm Opal will just have to play with the kids through the pen...

So there you have it Olivia is still Hanging In!!

As for Wynonna, that silly girl can scream her lungs out when I get out of her sight. I tried to take a shower today - greatly needed and you would have thought someone was pulling her tail off. Just like a spoiled kid she thinks the world revolves around her and to some extent she is right but really - unless I want to start to smell like a billy goat, which I don't, a shower must happen and I am sure thankful that it has. Then I remember those poor folks in Japan that are without everything and I had to give myself a big talking too... We must be thankful for all the little things we have for there are so many who have nothing.

Be Well Today - I count you in my blessings!

I am so glad everyone is doing well. It is amazing how quickly we can spoil a baby - of any species. How could you not though. So very cute.

In her goat world her mother would be with her 24/7 and nursing on demand so having to put them on a schedule makes them unsure of when or where things will happen. I just keep reminding myself - "Who really needs sleep?"

I am glad to hear that things are going okay. You must be ready to drop in your tracks. Keeping you in my thoughts and sending energy your way. Being a mom of any species is a demanding proposition!!
