Wow, what a great response to that last post! I was overwhelmed by all the positive comments. Thanks!

Fiber work has been sporadic here of late. I finished weaving the huck lace warp, and am in the process of twisting the fringe. I also pulled the spinning wheel out again yesterday, and got a lot more of the sapphire merino/silk done. I have two small nests of predrafted roving left, then can figure out what I want to make with this yarn. Plied on itself? Ply the purple and blue together? Use as singles? Knitting? Weaving? We'll see.

Cobalt seems to be doing a bit better. She still staggers around, but it's not as bad as it was. I just don't know. It may still come down to a quality of life decision. The vet said it could take a month or more for her to recover, or she may never. It's been about three weeks since this started. Basically, it's a waiting game, and there's not much guidance on how long we should wait. She doesn't seem to be in any pain, just dizzy and not herself. She's able to do her "backyard business" by herself (though somewhat unsteadily), and is eating and drinking fine. She knows us, and responds when we call her, but she is definitely not her normal self.

It's very heartwrenching to see her like this.

I know how you feel about Cobalt. I earnestly hope that she recovers or at least is more her normal self soon.
