After a week of touch and go, the Sin City girls are both back to normal! Eating, drinking and just as importantly, normal stool! We went from liquid, to normal after 2 days of the magical Metronidazole. Seems they had giardia. Giardia is a parasite, and not only did the 2 girls have it, but everyone ended up with it. The vet figured they would all end up with it, so he gave me enough to treat them all. The rest of the clan have 2 doses left, and all the stools are almost back to normal. Whew.

Vegas is feeling better.

Vegas does her impression of "Killer Clowns from Outer Space."

A nice photo pose from the Sin City girls.

So, the Sin City girls spent 2 days in my office, so I could better monitor them, and keep them from infecting the others, and keep the others from eating their food. I moved them back in with the rest of the "colony" Sunday morning. The elephants are all romping up there and should be on a fast track to get to weight.

Dallas still has that sour puss face.

Colonel has the same look on his face.

Albany stops for a photo.

Vegas just woke up from a nap.

Plays peek-a-boo.

Hopefully, there will be smooth sailing from here on out.
