a glimmer of hope

she is still up and walking around. she eats (very little) she pees and poops. if she had either of the aforementioned diseases she'd be in much worse condition--down or dead. after hours of tabitha pouring over cow disease websites. after nimue presenting a new symptom. after talking to a different veterinarian, better, nicer and more competent. we and he believe that she has blue tongue disease--not fatal.

NOT FATAL

secondary infections can be fatal. he recommended antibiotics. we gave her her first shot this morning.

we are meeting him to get more medicine later today

OH THANK GOODNESS, Karl and Tabitha. I've been heartbroken for you since I read the post last night. Continued vibes of good health to your cow...

Please tell me that you will pay the original asshat vet a visit to inform him personally of Nimue's survival?!

Oh Hallelujah. I have been worried about Nimue since reading your post yesterday.

we are keeping our fingers crossed, good wishes streaming her way.... Sarah and I want to send some $$ to help offset what must be a very costly, unplanned expense... should we send it to Tabitha's paypal account? It won't be much, but surely every bit will help make it easier to try all remedies.
Today, I suggested to Tabitha that maybe getting grass seeds and planting a shallow flat to grow soft, tender, nutritious greens might help Nimue get more food into her without hurting so much?
Let me know about where to send the money asap.
