|Posted: 4/30/2013 11:11:59 PM|*update* He made it through the night, thank God! I called first thing this morning, he's awake, alert, and sitting up. The dr will be checking him out right about now, so I hope to get the call that I can come pick him up this morning. Thanks so much for the prayers/positive thoughts, I so appreciate it. I really do believe in the power of peas!
I don't post often on this board anymore, but I believe in the power of the peas. I had to take my beloved bunny Thumper to the vet this afternoon because he stopped eating. He needed emergency surgery to remove an "enormous" hairball from his stomach (per the vet doing the surgery). (for those that don't know, rabbits cannot digest hair and they can't throw up either). they also removed a lot of fluid from his stomach that couldn't get through the blockage. He was in such pain, there was no hesitation on my part to get him in. He survived the surgery, but is not out of the woods yet. Rabbits REALLY don't like being cut open and he could still take a turn for the worse, especially if he doesn't start eating. I know it's a little silly to go to extremes for a rabbit (at least according to my dh) but he is really like a child to me and even lets me hold him like a baby. ok, after all this blathering, I would really, really, really appreciate any good thoughts/prayers/etc for him. He's the first animal I've really LOVED since I was a child and it would be devastating to me and to his mate if he doesn't make it. I'm having trouble sleeping because I'm so afraid I'll get that midnight call that he is going downhill or even passed away while I wasn't there.
this is him:
I know, not the best picture, but he really hates posing for the camera thanks in advance!

Prayers and positive thoughts heading your way. My neices have had 2 pet rabbits Peter died after a very long life as a litterbox trained house pet. Lenny lives in a hutch outside at the kids dad's house now but he is a true white rabbit with pink Albino eyes and is so pretty.

Positive thoughts coming your and Thumpers way from me and our two bunnies. One of them had to have surgery last year, and is now as happy as ever. I hope that will be the case for Thumper too.
Sit. Stay. Pea!

|Posted: 5/1/2013 1:10:21 AM|Awww..that's horrible that Thumper was in pain and had no way to tell you, other than not eating.
Thank goodness you were able to get the surgery done, and good thoughts and prayers that he gets better very, very soon.
Please update when you can.
