|"I just wanted to be with my mommy."|
Thanks to everyone for your suggestions about her issues.
She's eating well, but still wants me to hand feed it to her most of the time. I've used a small syringe to put water in her mouth, and she swallows it...but she mainly likes it when she licks water off my finger...whatever works!! But this mornin' she walked up to Bella Jo's bowl and took a big long drink!! YEAH!!
The cone thing is a real problem though. She can't even hold her head up with it on. It's only on her when I can't watch her (like going out to feed or make dinner). But, I have to go to town today, so I'll be checking out our farm store (Big R) to see if they have an inflatable collar (thanks DarcC for that suggestion). They've got a full pet aisle, so I hope they've got one. If not, I'll order one online. Dreaming suggested an infant T shirt and that might be an option too, but after we clean her wounds, she gets smeared with a Silver Sulfadiazine cream, and I'm afraid the T shirt would stick and maybe irritate. But, options are always worth a try!
I'm getting better at getting her pills down her too...it's a challenge, but it's getting easier.
Oh, the other thing that is really noticeable today is that her eyes are much brighter...I think she's feeling a lil' bit better.
OK...I've got to head for town. Thanks again everyone for all you've done~
