The Vets at the Hospital are saying that they have never seen a donkey “come back” from where Myka had gone… they told us her chances of surviving were 10%,
But then, you responded to our email!
Some of you emailed back, or commented at our blog or on our facebook page. Many of you prayed, others sent positive flows of energy her way. (We think that’s one and the same thing.)
The doctors said the most dramatic turn for the better came out over Friday evening and Saturday – exactly the time period you were responding to our pleas for help!
Saturday morning, she got up on her own and walked around, and began to take milk from a bottle. This floored the doctors.
Prior to that, machines were keeping her breathing and she was being fed intraveneuously.
Please keep it up!
Everything looks so positive right now, we’re confident that she’ll keep getting better and just be “all the way” well. But there are challenges still ahead for Myka.
I want to keep the focus of this email on Myka. But we have not forgotten about you and your needs. If there is anything that we can help you with in terms of gates, fences, locksmith services, security cameras and lighting, intercoms, or any other home or residential security concerns, please give us a call at Mulholland Security Centers. 1-800-562-5770. Here are the links to our gates gallery, and here is a link to the Mulholland Security Site. You can also reach me directly on my cell at 1-818-266-6930.
Myka and my daughter, Sage.
– More About Our Donkeys –
We’ve got three horses, a pooch, and now, with Myka, our third donkey. All the animals are a pleasure, but the donkeys somehow stand out. One thing that has constantly amazed me is how smart these creatures are!
In both these videos our donkeys got away and got us into some trouble. The first video shows them being apprehended by a Malibu police officer, after they unlatched the gate lock. That’s a pricey ticket!
I thought we had this all under control as I had my crew come and build a better gate and corral. But then one of the workmen did not make sure that he closed the gate behind him, so our get-away donkeys were on the 7:00 news. (second video)
We’ve since handled this by setting up an automatic hydraulic gate closer that firmly returns the gate to a closed position once released.
