You need to take an electric blanket to cover yourself with at night on the cot.

Carpe Diem!

I hope there will be more good news this morning. Thinking of this little doll constantly and hoping against hope for continued imrpovement. She can be our little Christmas Miracle.

Oh what I wouldnt give for an electric blanket xD I have two big quilts and a jacket though...I'm just being whiny. haha
Kenzie is still with us and 24 away from getting out of the red zone! Her fever didn't go up at ALL last night, thank goodness! She still isn't attempting to stand on her own which is alarming, but the vet said that she's probably so stiff and weak that it will take a while. She's to the point of getting up with help every 2 hours though and stays up for a good 20 minutes. This morning she is frantically talking to one of the mares in the pasture closest to her, which I'm going to take as a very good sign. Poor thing is hungry for companionship and I'm just not cutting it!
Her mucus has thinned and is less green, and she's now peeing and pooping normally. The next thing on our agenda? Get this little girl on her feet, eating better, and not fever stricken! Her fever is 102.2 right now and hasn't risen above that. Still hasnt broken though.

I've been following the thread. I confess to being cowardly about joining in up until this point in the event there was bad news but since it now looks like what can be said to be guarded optimism I'm in. You're doing good work, Endiku -- you're an excellent example of kindness and dedication for all of us to follow.

Do you have any pictures of the little fighter?? I bet she's cute (considering the situation) covered up in a bundle of blankets.

I wish I lived closer, I have nothing but time and would love to help her recover. Still sending healing vibes with my candle lighting each evening!!

Hang in there Kenzie!!

Live well, laugh often, love deeply...An' it harm none.

Endi.. that is great news. She is happy and wanting to be with another horse is fantastic !! She should start gaining ground soon as that fever breaks, hopefully it will tonite ! I wish I could come get her. She would have a home for life. ;} but I have 11 of my own, owe a huge hay bill and take care of my bros in laws 7 . It got colder here mid to high 40's and some rain . We so needed the rain and some snow in the mountains.

Well then welcome Chevaux! I admit, I'm having a hard time wanting to be optomistic too because I really don't want to get my hopes up, but I just have this feeling that she's going to be ok. She's a fighter, thats for sure.

Faydesmom. You have no idea how much I wish that I did! Unfortunately...I kind of killed my camera back in the summer and have no money to buy another >.> they first photo was sent to me from the rescue. BUT on Saturday, a friend is coming out to take photos of my mare and filly for everyone, so I'll see if she'll snap a few of Kenzie then too. Hopefully by then she'll be standing on her own.

Kenzie is tucked away, nice and cosy in her stall, munching on some very nasty looking alfalfa pellet 'soup' xD we offered her a flake of hay, and she's picked at it a little, but so far she hasn't really eaten much of it. I think that the vitamin B shot has helped though, as she's looking a bit perkier and keeps head bumping me to be scratched more. I love seeing her start to get some of that spark back that I remember from when she was little.

One and a half pounds of alfalfa pellets down, 102.1 degree fever, and still wheezing but not draining so much. It is COLD out though and the poor thing is shivering. The freezing rain isn't helping either.

Ofcourse, our idea of freezing is laughable to you guys xD
48 degrees with 25 mph wind and some rain ;)

To hold you guys over, here is a picture of her back when she was healthy, happy, and still had mama </3 The goal? To get her back like this!

Its a shame that her dam didn't make it. She was a very pretty mare.

I have read **** near every single post and I just have to say Endiku that you are an awesome person. I am sending all kinds of good healthy vibes to Kenzie and I hope she continues to improve
You will have some seriously great karma coming to you for going out of your way for this little girl.

Thats one heck of a lot of posts then! I just realized that we've made 10 pages already. Thank you ^_^ everyone, for the support. Kenzie is one sweet baby and I'm really hoping that she'll pull through.
