Hello... I should share the latest news. Marian, the old boy is not feeling very well lately. We don't know what is wrong with him. In the morning He was laying down unable to stand up. He tried and tried to get up without success. We called the doctor today two times. He came in the morning and put Marian on IV fluids, 18 liters (Glucose, lactated Ringer Solution and 200 ml of Novacoc). The doctor didn't had to many hopes of recovery because the wick state of the horse and because of his age. After the IV fluids Marian could get up with some help. From morning till now he was standing up without problems and eating. In the evening we saw that he was dehydrated again, he was eating all day but not drinking water. So he is again on IV fluids. I don't know how many liters they did him now because I had some things to do at home and I couldn't stand for so long. I was there from 9 AM to 9 PM. Now I know that they did him Lactated Ringer Solution again, Duphalyte and some liver protector.
I don't know what to say about all the things. Marian seems to be curious and full of life like always. He has a great will to live but he is very week. I could see how week he was on his legs. If he would lay down we knew that he was to weak to get up. But he stand up all day despite his weak and trembling legs. I don't know why he is so weak now. He seemed to be ok yesterday. I know that he is very old and malnourished but I'm sad. We are considering putting him down if he wouldn't show signs of recovery despite the treatment. For now he's ok. But I don't know how he will be tomorrow or the day after tomorrow. If he will continue to be weak despite all the IV fluids and food he doesn't stand a chance.
Here's a photo with him receiving IV fluids. The photos is taken from the online camera. 2011-04-15_214951.jpg
