The waiting game.....


What a week....

Here is my little up-date on Annie.
I say *little* because there really is
 nothing new to report.

She is holding her own.
Her temp is stable.
She is grazing and walking the pasture.
Hay is the only thing she will eat.
Annie is still turning up her nose at grain!
For a filly who will knock you down
to get to her food,
this is
just not Annie!

Tomorrow will be her last IV treatment.
Hopefully we will see her improve each day,
and begin to gain an appetite!

It may be the end of next week
before we have her test results back-
Oy!


And so we keep watching.
And waiting.
For Annie to give those big
squeals of joy
when we walk into the barn.
For Annie to dive into her
morning *oatmeal*!
For Annie to gallop across her pasture
with such love for her
little filly life!

For Annie to just be Annie,
and do all those silly Annie things that she does!

Please continue to think of Annie.
I know your prayers and good thoughts are working~
Because it could be so much worse....
Such wonderful comments of love and support
you have left!
I have read them over and over.....
I {heart} each and everyone one of you!

Annie has been on my mind all week! My husband even asks about her too! He is a horse lover as well :) I am glad that she is out in the pasture and at least eating hay. Hopefully she will back to her normal self and giving you boards to replace. LOL
I know it has been an awful and trying week for you and J. Take care of yourselves as well. Praying for you all!
Please give Annie a HUGE HUG from me!
Hugs,
Donna

i HATE how long it takes to get a prognosis/diagnosis! seems like torture! in the meantime, i'm glad she has stabilized, altho still not herself. at least she's out and about and eating hay. :)

Deb said...

With all of the good care she is getting she's sure to be back to herself in no time. Try not to worry too much (easier said than done).

Still sending good thoughts to TN!

We heart you too! And Annie! Continuing to pray. My thoughts are that Annie may be like us "hoo-mans" when we are sick.. certain things we turn up our noses at until we feel better. Sometimes those instincts are the best - Darling Girl probably *knows* just what she is doing, and maybe just eating hay is for the best right now. Sending lots of hugs and prayers.. and hope Annie eat those oats soon! we'll celebrate!! -Tammy

Eating hay and grazing is better than she was. We all worry about Annie right along with you ... thank you for keeping us informed. Prayers still coming your way!

Keeping my fingers crossed for Annie's health to return so she can eat oatmeal and run and squeal and play.

I can't wait for the next pic showing J replacing boards. Sorry J!

And I know she will, she's full of spunk that girl and one day we'll be saying remember when...

Thinking of all you all day today.

There was more on the news here last nigh...more horses with an equine herpies virus...is it that?

Donna said...

Our animals are like our children, entrusted to us for their care, so I know how worried that you have been! There are a whole bunch of us praying for this little gal and she certainly has her determined spirit going for her! Hahaha, I love the pink bow on her head! Thanks for letting me know about the vet being featured in the upcoming evening news. We will be sure to record and watch it.
