Thank You ... Thank You ... Thank You

You've all been very kind and patient, and I'm more grateful than I can say.

Things are sort of stable and holding. Brownie took a chomp out of the subcutaneous line last night while I was having trouble getting the needle seated ... $50 down the drain. The Mr. picked up another set-up on the way home, but I don't think Mallow really needed it tonight. It pooled beneath his skin and for a bit he looked like he had a huge fur collar, poor bun. The Young Lady has been giving him him water (from the water bottle) and clear Pedialyte (from a toddler's sippy cup - Anne the bunny sitter suggested the Pedialyte, but the cup was TYL's own idea) during the day.

You can bet I'm putting me and Mal inside the pen while I'm hydrating him now, and Brown outside of it.

Oh - and TYL and I both managed to stab ourselves with the used needle while trying to get it off the set-up afterward.

Brownie sounds like quite the little devil!

I hope your poor bun gets better soon so he can feel like his old self and the injuries and stress on the rest of the family goes down! :(

Naughty, jealous Brownie! Tsk tsk.

And yeah, Pedialyte is a very good thing to keep around in a critter first aid kit. The sippy cup is quite a nifty idea, though -- how well does he drink from it?

Re Mal & the sippy cup: TYL tilts it so that it starts to drip, and he laps at it.

Well, I hope he is getting better.

I had to give subcutaneous water to a cat, so I feel your pain (also with stabbing yourself with the needle, which is yucky to say the least). Although at least my cats didn't bit the IV's :D

YAY!!! I'm so releived. Mallow bunny: Keep getting stronger! Brownie: Bad bun, no sippy cup! *giggles* I love the idea of pedialyte in a sippy cup. *beams at the YL*

Aw, bunnies. I'm so glad Mallow's doing better!
