Getting very tense here now. Yohav came to examine Bert again and we have decided she has to go in tomorrow. She is more uncomfortable now and managing things with pain relief is not working. This afternoon she even let Lina steal her food and didn't make any fuss about it - for Bert that is unheard of. So, tomorrow afternoon, we go to the vets in Stur and take it from there. We have managed to sort transport, now I just have to decide who is going with her. Carl has gone to check over the livestock trailer and get it ready, I will just have to somehow get her in it tomorrow afternoon ready for the off. Two vets will be standing ready and I am hoping I can be with her throughout, Yohav thinks that will be okay. I am glad we are doing it close to home so she only has a 10 minute journey and she does know Yohav (I am not saying she is fond of him after he manipulated her!). It is a bit of a risk and there is no guarantee it will be successful but I don't really see we have much option now. I don't know what it is about Bert, she is just such a sweet little alpaca. Today she was looking into my eyes and murmuring to herself, probably saying, "For goodness sake sort this out, you're supposed to be in charge!"
Wish us luck!
