I have good news people! Stu Bob is coming home tomorrow! I am so excited to see her and have her with me again, but its also really scary at the same time... She had a bad week last week with the nose (she has a nose tap now that you put the syringe into the hole in her cheek and the liquid comes out of her nose, flushing all the bad stuff out of the bone in her nose) I have to do this twice a day (Sally was doing it every hour but its doing better now). Shes putting on weight apparently and her fur is growing back really well now. She doenst need to wear the jumper anymore, and shes eating critical care as a paste, and loves it! So sally said she is not as concerned anymore, as she is doing better, BUT we still have the problem with the abscess in her cheek. That still needs to be addressed. Because Stu was hving difficulties last week, sally took her off baytril to give her a rest and gave her a herbal remedy / recipe for respiratory problems and it has cleared up her nose a lot.
But all in all, she is ok to come home, and I am so super excited! She gets to come to work with me during the day too so I can keep an eye on her, so I got her a super huge carry crate (I reckon you could fit a great dane in it!) and shes going to be with me
I have Stus bed all ready for her to come home to (Its a airport cage for a Kelpie so its pretty big), with her towel and her dumbo pillow
And here is Mr Bunny when I told him the news that his Stu Bob is coming home
Thank you so much everyone! She is home! Well, here at work with me during the long days, and then home. She loves her crate, shes cross with me because I just cleaned her nose, but I dindt recognise her ths morning when I went to pick her up! She has grown back some fur (still bald on one side), and her face is still a problem, but its the best it has ever been! Sally said she had her doubts a few times and thought about putting her to sleep and just telling me that she had died overnight, but Stu was so positive with her digging and binkying that we stuck it out and she is much better! She may never fully recover, but at least she is happy for the time being! Sally said next thing we have to pray for is her tooth to come loose so we can pull it out, then she will recover fully!!! It may not happen, but theres a chance it could! And she has learned a trick! Sally taught her to pick up a ball and throw it to me!!! As a suprise! Shes such a precious bunny!
I will post pictures tonight!!!
Yay!!! I'm so happy for you that your sweet little bunny came home! =)
