Shadow left us on Monday. She was in pain and I couldn't stand to see her hurt like that. She was a good bunny and I'll never forget her. I don't want to talk about it. But I wanted to let everyone know.

spent the day being depressed about shadow, and now I've gone into stubborn mode. She's eating. She's grooming herself, and she's TRYING to stand up. She's made it over to her water bottle on her own at least twice now, and she eats from her dish as well as the fresh veggies. She's not ready to give up and I'm damn well not either. If this round of meds doesn't show any improvement, I'm going to either ask the current vet or find one who will do it, give me a Depo-Medrol shot for her and an injection against E.cuniculi - which should, if that's what it is, fix her up in a week or two. Hopefully.

the alternative is something I don't even want to think about.

Shadow's head tilt has gone from barely there to extremely bad in like a day and a half. Right now she can't sit up, she can only lay on her side. I have to hold her upright so she can eat, and hand feed her, and hold her water bottle for her so she can drink. Any time she tries to sit up she just rolls over due to loss of balance entirely. She's in her cage, and the cage is lined with towels, and the walls are padded with rolled up towels and small pillows. I'm going to the vet tomorrow to pick up some different medicine. I hope it helps. Also going to pick up some rabbit-friendly green leafy things from the grocery store. She can eat the fresh food much easier than her regular food.

My poor baby. She's been getting worse all evening.

So shadow's been sickish lately - runny eye, and now a tilt to her head, so I took her to the vet as soon as possible. And he thinks she's probbably got "snuffles", which is a bactireal infection in the sinuses and nasal passages. That doesn't sound too bad - except he says the head tilt is because the bacteria are damaging the nerves in her ears and head - causing the tilt and some loss of balance. Snuffles is a permanant disease - it will never really go away. The symptoms may abate for long periods of time, but unless the rabbit has a really badass immune system it will more than likely come back.

and here's the best part - it can be suddenly fatal.

I have to give her shots for the next week and call him to let him know how she's doing. Now if you will excuse me I'm going to go buy bunny treats and tasties for her.

  • [livejournal.com profile] ryankim is today's hero for buying me 6 more months of paid LJ! Three cheers for [livejournal.com profile] ryankim!

  • Cannot find my Stitch N' Bitch Nation book. This is MOST distressing, since I wanted to possibly make something from it, I'm not sure.

  • Jobsearch is going poorly, but such is the way sometimes.

  • Shadow's eye is still runny, but her fever's gone down to being practically nonexistant which is GREAT, now if only her eye would stop oozing.

  • finally getting back into the swing of things with netflix. Hooray!

  • I don't think I'm gonna make it with growing my hair out. It's just making me NUTS. Hafta see if I can go get it lopped off soonish.

Need to remember -

  • Shadow thinks my grape&lime scented lotion is DELICIOUS. Remember not to use it on bits she has access to or she will lick it free of said lotion (the lotion smells like grape-flavored gum, like bubbleicious or bubble tape to me)

  • also - find any remaining textbooks and sell them to the campus store for some possible cash. yaaaaaaaaaay cash!

  • attempt to not get sick by sleeping lots and staying warm.


things to do :

  • Finish Pheonix Wright: Ace Attorney (Am on the final day of case 4. I'm pretty sure I have it all figured out except for Mr. Snaps's motivations, SO SO SO GOOD OMG)

  • work more on the bitpim stuff
