Post Easter Update for Carina and Carissa

Here is the letter I just received from Misty Marten, who is kind enough to forward Tina’s updates:

Hi every one and
Happy Easter!

Both girls are doing
very well. Carisa much better than Carina, as she didn’t have the severe infection nor all the other health issues Carina has.  We move Carisa to her foster home with Miki, as she doesn?t need the intensive care Carina does and it is not contagious. Miki is the queen of Mange so she is in good hands.

Carians vet
check up on Friday went very well, they are extremely pleased with her progress and though she still looks terrible, she is MUCH better. Very alert and  responding well. We changed the type of antibiotics we are giving her to see if it helps more.  She still has open sores all over her body and many many live mites on her, interesting to see them on the microscope, can’t imagine what they must feel walking all over her, they are microscopic and live under the skin.  Her ears are almost healed, maybe one more week of care, but her ear drums are intact now.

It is heartwarming watching her wanting to play with toys. She was afraid of them at first as I don’t think she has ever seen one, but now she brings them to her bed. She has a hard time picking them up due to the paralysis on the left side of her face, but she manages. Every one adores her at the vet and admires her fighting spirit, no one gave her a chance to make it.  She is no longer critical, but still very sick, barring any further infections or problems she will make it, she will have a very long journey, but the future is bring for her.

I ask you to please continue praying for little Carina, she is not out of the woods, but we are extremely hopeful and we pray her body holds up to all that is to come. We again appreciate your support, financial and in any other way many of you have supported us. Please continue to pass the words about these little ones as their journey has just begun. It is has been a very Happy Easter for these two angels.

Tina

  1. So glad to hear that Carina is doing better. Will continue to say prayers for her and Carisa. It is still beyond me how someone could let any type of animal get into that kind of condition. Thank goodness for all of the rescue organizations out there and their volunteers who take in these precious animals and nurse them back to health!

  2. Wonderful! What an Easter blessing. As always, thanks for sharing the updates.
