.... just checking in folks ...
My hoomin went out of town and left me under the watchful eye of my vet.
He decided he could not take better care of me than the vet would. I think he was right. If he stayed home, he could not do anything for me better.
Thus I rested and the staffgot to love on me all they wanted. I think they forget how to speak around me. They would just make those 'ooooooh' and 'aaaaah' noises.
... so here's my leg, slowaly healing. They took another x-ray of it.
My vet said it won't heal straight, but it will heal.
She consulted with a specialist and as long as the leg is healing and I'm not gnawing on it, I'll keep it. Meaning, they won't have to saw it off ;-)
Finally, I get home and what do you know?!? A willow wreath is waiting for me. And scooter snaps! Yep, scooter snaps! And Oxbow timothy hay treats. Hoomin even tasted one and said they're ok.
So, yep, my bones are too delicate to even try anything fancy like putting a pin in them, or a plate around them :-( But a callous is forming and that might be as good as it gets. In the meantime, hoomin is still fiddling with my set up, rearranging stuff, smoothing out anything that my leg might get caught on.
I guess it could be worse. Everything said, nothing keeps me noming down a carrot.
This hoomin he calls 'Ang' (or Angie?, can never tell exactly, are there 2 of them ?!?) grew some carrots in the yard. And they are coming up nicely! Right now I can inhale the whole thing in one sitting, but they are supposed to get bigger!

... good news hoomin.
I just checked the list. You're on it and you can expect a delivery.
And no, it's not coal.
For you it's graphite!
- Thank you Renee!

Well, where are the carrots and apples?!? You said carrots would grow on this tree. And what about the dandelionsicles?
- Thank you Dorothy!
- PS: At times when disapproval seemed like it was about dry up for good, I always thought "at least we have Attila for the Holidays". Crossing our paws, there was always just enough disapproval to carry on :-)

Can we help you?
... anyyyyyy way, we could try the vertical hydroponic set up. We can work the hoomins just as hard and get more out of them. Maybe we won't have to go through them so fast?
- Thank you Renee!

Ammmm, you owe me extra treats for this. And I expect royalties. Carrotin for every view!
I am the president of The Bunny Burrow Rabbit Rescue and wanted to introduce Sophie. Sophie came to us as an owner surrender with severe malocclusion and a very large molar abscess at only approx 11 weeks old. Sophie ended up losing her entire left mandible and lower left molars because the infection had completely disintegrated her bone. She has had 2 subsequent surgeries after the first major surgery as the abscess kept coming back. Our vet had to create a hole in her cheek (through to her mouth) to aide in the healing of the persistent abscess. Sophie has been through a lot in her short little life, but she is now infection free! Sophie still has some obstacles to over come, but she is a trooper and has an amazing will to live! She will also be a permanent resident of The Bunny Burrow due to her special needs.
I took this picture of Sophie after cleaning her cheek where the hole was. When she would eat, some of the food would squeeze out of the hole making a terrible mess. As you can see, Sophie was none to pleased that I had the audacity to clean her! Thankfully this sweet little girl is quick to forgive and impossible to not love! I think Sophie nailed the "Disapproving Bun"!
... Agreed, Sophie nails it!
- Thank you Erin!

Your dissertation books are taking over my napping spot. And how about you pick a useful different topic, maybe "Bun Chores", or "How to make a perfect carrotini"??
- Thank you Shannon!

We are back and we are freaked out. Trying to stay comfortable and keeping one's wits about is rather difficult. My hoomin is doing his best and he struggles with having to improvise. A lot. Suddenly the realization hits that taking care of disabled rabbit is nothing like taking care of a bun one is so used to. The feeling of inadequacy in everything being done is maddening. We'll do what we can. Next follow up is on Friday. If need be, we'll head for the vet sooner. Especially if the part that is taped up can't be kept clean and dry. Houston in the blind, keep those vibes coming :-)
I can't believe we're going back to the vet.
.... Houston, we have to.
Back to the vet indeed. Turns out my left rear leg is sticking out to the side and we're not sure what's going on. Mama vet said come back if I'm not at least 50% better in the morning. So here we went.
Later on the vet called. Fracture. Cast for 1-2 weeks. Spending Friday night at the vet. Should be back home by noon on Saturday.
Hoomin says he got me a new bundo, new pee box, pooch pads ( WTH are pooch pads you silly hoomin?!?). Should be all comfy now.
Houston, we sure could use some of those good vibes sent our way.

Dinner was half an hour late. I don't even feel like properly glaring in disapproval. Clearly I'm wasting away to nothing.
Never mind the endless Timothy hay, or the little bit of food from yesterday I still had leftover that I spilled on the floor. That isn't fresh enough for me, the Goddess!
Is it Friday yet? I can almost taste it.
- Thank you Alicia!

I thump in your general direction.
- Mr. Bun
PS: I had to get a check-up at the vet. Turns out he might have some arthritis in his back legs. So we got anti-inflammatory med. And eye drops. And 'sneezing' medicine. And we're grumpy. My hoomin takes it about as well as I do, we're both seriously bummed out. Getting old can stink sometimes :-(

This is Captain C. Butterscotch-Noam. If you're watching this, it means we've left the camp and are heading directly due South for the Cinnamon Valley.
The storm destroyed most of our remaining supplies and we are down to a few frozen carrotinis. Hoomins and cats are loaded up and saddled and we'll have to drive them hard, but that's our last chance. See you in the valley. **THUMP**
- Thank you Lexi!

Coal, that's what you get tonight, my dear hoomin.
- Thank you Samantha!
PS: Since a lot of our friends celebrate St. Nick or Saint Nicholas around this time of year (plus or minus a day or two), we didn't want you to feel left out ;-) - Mr. Bun
