Something happened this morning which hasn't happened for a week. When I weighed Tsar (I dread weighing in) for the first time in seven days he had gained weight. Now it was only 50 grams, and as I said yesterday when he lost 50 grams it was only the equivalent of a quick wee.
I think about Tsar all the time. When I close my eyes in Bedfordshire every night I am thinking of him and he is the first thing on my mind when I wake up. 50 grams is a very small amount. Maybe he's had a big wee by now and weighs less than that?
I am trying to stay realistic, trying not to get carried away. He could be dead tomorrow I know that, he only weighs 16.30kg and he is seven months old. He is hanging on a very thin thread. But......... on the wihiteboard in the kitchen the numbers have changed from black (weight loss) to red (weight gain).
He still has the squits big time, it's still pouring out of him but is Gelda's colostrum starting to take affect?
Here is little Tsar at feeding time saying hello to all the other weaners this morning.
Come on son hang in there, we can do it!
