DH can work from home a day or so.... we might try to make that work out. Now if only D-Day would get up on his own and nurse I could go to work!!!
    Fabulous update
    (been quietly following & jingling for this guy)

    For help, check your area for those horsie mad teens - my kid would absolutely volunteer to play foal-nurse unfortunately we live far far away

    (maybe your vet clinic could recommend someone)

    great update. The prolonged no sleep thing does take a huge toll.


    I was there for the month ofapril and it really does affect your sanity.


    I wish you could find someone to help out because even one night of uninterrupted sleep would help and refresh you a great deal.

    I think the local pony club could have a barn sleepover unmounted meeting overnight at your place taking care of D day so you can get some sleep... Or maybe there is a Girl Scout badge for helping a foal through the night??

    So glad to see he's improving

    Superduper!!! I know you're tired and still in the woods, but this update relieves a boatload of the fears I was having! Also hope you can find a horse addict who'll be thrilled to babysit so you can get some sleep (and "moola")... and wish I was close by to help!

    oppsie--this is SO very encouraging to hear, Yay!!! Obviously he isn't out of the woods quite yet, but it seems like all the signs are "pointing in the right direction", I am incredibly relieved to read about this positive progress--and a more hopeful prognosis...Keep the faith!

    As our dear friend ZuZu is "always optimistic", I am "always hopeful."

    I wish you could find more HELP nearby!! This is crummy timing, I'm sure you are both physically and emotionally exhausted.

    Hang in there (you too, D-Day!)

    Oopsie, you're a really GOOD Mom. It takes a lot to hang in there and go through what you're going through. So glad to hear he's doing better thanks to your great care. I hope you can find someone trustworthy to spell you enough to get a good night's sleep. You'll be so close to this foal forever and I think D-Day is a great name in honor of all those veterans who gave there all and especially those who survived like D-Day surely will. Keep up the good work, hard as it is, it's worth it. He needs you!

    Fabulous news!! I know you are keeping a realistic approach (which is great), but I have a feeling this little guy is going to be just fine!

    Do you have a vet tech you could hire to help you out so you can go to work/ sleep? I had to do this once when I had a dummy foal and she loved the extra cash and I loved the break

    Default Love the updates ~ Bless you for taking the time to share with us Jinglers !

    First ~ Love the updates !

    Thanks for taking the time to share the improvement news with the Jinglers !

    Bless you for thanking the "Jinglers" ``` please know we're ALL onboard your train for the entire journey ~ AO ~

    ** as a matter of fact in a perfect world many of us would travel to your 'horse-pital' to help "spell" you

    I would drive, stopping of course, to pick up Dr. Doolittle and we would help you get some rest & recovery....
    * right Dr. D ?!?

    Dr. D could care for D-Day while
    I substituted for your classes ( yes special ed ``LOVED IT TOO! )
    and you could sleep !

    Sounds like a plan if only we lived closer ...

    I'm afraid the commute would do us in

    Anyway just know we would if we could !

    Keep on keepin on ~ Jingles & AO !

    Oopsie, I'm obsessed with checking for your updates, and so glad things are going in the right direction. I wish I could spell you; I know about that need for uninterrupted sleep. Jingling on....

    That "perfect world"; wouldn't it be heaven??

    In the meantime, we will ALL simply continue to do what we can--which is to shore up your spirits; you WILL get through this! And is sounds like so will HE!

    clint, I too have been obsessively checking for updates--poor oppsie has enough on her plate (obviously!), but she has continued to give us status reports, so I haven't wanted to message her...Hang in there, oppsie! You have the formidable force of the COTH BB behind you, and we're all rooting for you and little D-Day
