The Vets at the Hospital are very impressed with Myka’s fast and complete recovery!
Here are her “Welcome Home” Photos!
Thank you for your prayers and positivity!
Our baby donkey, Myka, was born on the 24th of January of this year, but within a few hours we rushed her to the hospital…
Myka was born in the very early hours that day; we knew that she was coming, but had no idea that she would be there when we woke that morning.
For unknown reasons, Myka was unable to feed from her mother at birth. By the time we awoke and saw her, hours had gone by without nutritition – at perhaps the most important time any animal needs nutrition.
We took Myka to the renowned Humphrey, Giacopuzzi and Associates Equine Hospital in Somis CA., They began anministering to her within minutes of our arrival. A couple of hours after our arrival, one of her doctors explained what had happened and increased our understanding of the importance of food in the first few hours of a donkey’s life.
And the Doctors also told us the very unhappy truth: the likelihood was that Myka would not recover. They gave Myka’s chances as about 1 in 10.
They told us that they would do all that they could, but that we should know the facts.
If you have been opening our “donkey emails”, you already know about this. But the good news of her recovery is less well known and…
We’re So Happy We Just Want to Tell the World!!!
The Doctors and nurses at the hospital worked day and night to restore Myka’s health. All we could do was pray. But, “all we could do was pray” is not a hopeless statement, it is a powerful one. We prayed and we asked our friends and our customers and even the people who don’t us – people who have just filled out a form to get on our mailing list.
Over the next several days, we know lots of people prayed, as there were people calling us, emailing us and commenting on my blog and on our facebook page and they were letting us know.
Every day we called the hospital, and every day we were told she was getting better – and even that there was a particular surge for the better on a particular day – and we saw that was the day that our email went out.
So, thank you all for remembering Myka in your prayers.
We will forever be grateful for the compassion and competence of Dr. Richard and Dr. Williams and the part they played in Myka’s recovery.
Although I agree with them that Myka’s recovery was “in the hands of God”, I also feel that their thoughts and the myriad of medical procedures they performed were all directed from God, and that they personally acted from our prayers. – Avi Ben David
