3 am poop party...yay...not.

Carol  ·  Jun. 30, 2018

Noni is doing ok, but I am worried because when she is not eating.... she is just sleeping. She is still pretty sick so I hope this is ok. I woke her up and gave her a drink at 10 pm and will give her another before I head back to bed.

I am awake at 4 am because I just had to clean up an epic poop fest from another one of our newby dear ones. Poor little parapalegic Benjamin came in with giardia and an incontinent para with giardia in the middle of the night is one of my worst nightmares. This particular nightmare has been visiting me for the past many nights. I won't go in to detail. I will leave it to your imagination plus I have to live it enough anyway.
Ben is such a sweet little boy and none of this is his fault, Due to breeding for the frenchy cockscrew tail, he has spina bifida which totally sucks.

He is on meds for the giardia, which is notoriously difficult to get rid of...but eventually the meds will prevail and life will be better for both of us!

Ben is soooo sweet, and loves attention. I laid on the floor with him today and he was so excited... constantly giving me little "love bites" while snorting happily and wiggling all over...such a love bug.....Hope the giardia is healed up quickly for him.

Carol, you're a saint to give this kind of loving care while these beautiful animal pets are living their worst nightmare through no fault of their own... I've always had the greatest admiration for nurses!!


Giardia is a nightmare to deal with. Just when you think it's gone, it rears it's ugly head again. I haven't seen it here for a year but always watching for a reappearance.
