Steve, Thanks for all the advise. I did something maybe others wouldn't have - I checked the calf in the morning and the tongue's swelling was down a little. I watched the calf go up to the mother (who stood like a trooper) and try sucking. The tongue was going sideways yet he kept on trying. I decided to wait and maybe with the muscle motion something would change and it did. After two more hours the little fellow was drinking from momma. Thank God the cow is a gentle cow and just stood there waiting - it sure made things easier for the calf.
