thanks a lot for the support. she seems to move her head around a bit, (which is acitivty, any activity is good) but still can't stand.


i think if we try hard she'll make it.

Sounds like she was in the water too long and got water logged. Dry her as good as you can and put her under heat lamp, not to close you don't want her getting to hot just enough to warm her up is her breathing any better?

breathing clearing up a bit. peeping still faint but more frequent. she's sleeping (not dying because all her breething and peeping are as if she was awake.). but she cant walk so if she got too hot under the Lamp ii would nt know because she cant walk or aything to get out from uner it
