    Please pray for my goat Spice. I don't want to go into the details of what is wrong with her right now. But I am worried sick. Didn't sleep at all last night.

    :tears: :sigh:

    Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace;
    where there is hatred, let me sow love;
    where there is injury, pardon;
    where there is doubt, faith;
    where there is despair, hope;
    where there is darkness, light;
    and where there is sadness, joy.
    O Divine Master,
    grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
    to be understood, as to understand;
    to be loved, as to love;
    for it is in giving that we receive,
    it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
    and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.
    Amen.

    Thanks everyone. She is doing better. Mostly got myself all worked up. :oops: Silly me.

    Looks like it might have been a spider bite.

    Just wanted to say thanks again to everyone for the prayers. I truly believe they helped.

    I didn't want to say what was wrong at first but here is the story:

    Spice had a swelling on her Jaw. First I thought it was a bee sting since the bees were crazy they day she got it. That was on a Wed. I took her in to the Vet on Friday and by then her Jaw was HUGE. Both sides has swollen up. I was flipping! The vet of course said CL right away. She took a culture and sent it off. I was flipping. I had bought from clean herds, but I was soo worried. I tested everyone for CL and since I was sending the blood in anyways I also tested for CAE.

    So by Monday the Abscess popped. I contained everything. It was a creamy white fluid and it didn't smell that great. I couldn't get anymore puss out of it at night so I put BlueKote on it and left it alone.

    Well I got the results back from WADDL and everyone is NEG! :cool: I also got the culture results back and they are neg for CL. :wahoo: I guess it's a Strep infection.

    So it popped again tonight. The scab came off and white stuff came out again. I cleaned it up again and I can see a hole in it. So I am thinking it was a rose thorn that started this whole thing.

    But I just wanted to let you guys know the whole story. Thanks again!
