Finally, Wilma is able to nurse the twins. The vet came again last night and gave her mega antibiotics to get rid of her horrid uterine infection. At 9 am, this is what I found as I opened the back door to the barnyard. I was all smiles. The larger twin, WHISPER, still drank 3 quarts of milk replacer and the smaller twin, WIDGET, didn't want any. So guess who is stealing all of moms milk. I pray that Wilma's milk will increase as the antibiotics take affect. I am still a nurse maid to the twins twice a day. They both come a running when they hear my voice. Its really funny to witness our routine.
I just want Wilma to get better. Its been 2 weeks today since she surprised me with 2 wet calves. Its been a struggle to keep all 3 of them alive and healthy. Well worth it.
