For the past month, Lewis has been on rotating antibiotics to combat a bone infection. Persistent snow coverage and cold weather has curtailed his outside walks. Confined to his stall, visits from other llamas and attention from us does not replace his previous freedom of the pasture. He knows our attention often includes needles (twice daily) and sometimes painful treatment of the incision. He still has the infection, although he is walking well on the days when we have been able to get him outside. The lingering snow has hidden the winter grass in all but a few places, which we have sought out to provide Lewis a welcome treat. We continue to support him and he keeps fighting, although his illness seems to be lasting as long as the cold winter weather. We keep praying to see a turn-around soon.
