Hello Everyone, this is Daina's sister - she asked me to come and write a short post for her, letting you all know what is going on. This past year Daina (owner of Sunshine Meadows) has become confined to her bed, extremely sick with Lyme disease. I'm sure many of you probably know the symptoms of extreme nerve pain and total exhaustion... so I won't take time to explain a lot there. She has tried many, many different clinics and remedies, both natural and conventional suggested by many, many helpful folks, all to no avail, with symptoms continually getting worse. She has been unable to care for her goats during this time, and this past Spring a sweet friend so kindly and graciously offered to take care of her little herd of friendly goat pets until she is well enough to take them back again. This past month or so she started on with yet another ND who has a lot of experience with Lyme, and through extreme diet changes and supplements among other things, she seems to be improving! We are all very excited about how things are looking and she is very hopeful of being able to take her Mini Nubians back sometime soon and breed them for kids this next Spring. We are all thanking the Lord for His mercies which are new every morning... the daily improvements in health... and for the family who is currently taking care of all the goats. I know some of you wrote to her and probably have not heard back yet... she is hoping to respond to you personally as soon as she acquires enough strength and health to do so, but in the meantime she wants you to know that you all are special to her and she can't wait to have her dear pets back and respond to you personally!
