Maisie is eating! I went to see her this morning, after being told there was no change overnight, and as soon as she saw me she perked up. Poor thing is tied up to a drip, but with a pile of hay in front of her and when I began to talk to her and brush her she began munching. I stayed an hour and she was eating all that time, with her ears up, so she was feeling happier. I shall go back tomorrow and do the same thing. At least it is a positive sign, though the vets are not committing themselves yet of course. Tartine is also attacking a large mound of hay in a very frosty field, and is OK.
