Espresso, Charlie, and Gus Update

Hellos, Everybun!


Sir Sneez-A-Lot is finally turning the corner. The lab confirmed Bordetella. Since Wednesday, he's been on 1.8 ml of Sulfatrim twice daily for two weeks.

Of course, Espresso listened in on the phone call with the V. E. T. but thought he heard "mortadella," or "portobello," or something "international" and became very upset. Cuss words were thrown at the hoomin, and indignant thumps shook the burrow.

It took a while for the new medication to kick in, but we finally got a mostly sneeze-free night last night.
My hoomin also set up an appointment for him with a new V. E. T. for July 13th.

So, there you have it. The week felt terribly long, and there's nothing on the agenda today except some extra loafing. And treats. We're indulging in homemade treats made from Sarx recovery food and appetite restorer with plenty of herb garnish. Since my hoomin was afraid of what the antibiotic might do to Espresso's appetite, the treats are something to keep him eating, so we all get to enjoy a little bit of them.

We'll keep you posted!

The Bunday Evening Thumps

Good evening, Everybun!

We almost had a sneezless night last night. Spressy had another short fit today. Sigh. We really don't know how this recovery is supposed to progress. In a few days, we'll hear something back from the doctor at BluePearl; my hoomin will set up an appointment with a new, "regular" V. E. T. We'll discover more.

Is the suspense killing us? Just about. Is he doing better? Yes.

Would any of this have happened if my hoomin had not gone to Bunefest this year? Maybe, maybe not. It was one of the doctors from the Veterinary Emergency Group at Bunfest who suggested the CT Scan.

At least we had broken through to this new territory.

Goodnight and good luck!

Espresso, Charlie, and Gus Update

Espresso, Friday night, "Dinner!?"
Espresso, Friday night, "Yep, still mad - you bum!"
Espresso, Wednesday night, "A cookie, eh!? Ya think that settles it!?"
Espresso, Wednesday night, "Hope you're hoppy, now leave me alone!"



Hellos, Everybunny!

The short of it is that everything went well enough. Last night, I had my first sneeze-free round of good sleep. Nobunny had to wake up because of my harumphing.

The last M*nd*y night before the procedure was extremely nerve-wracking. The only relief we got was knowing we'd made it this far. Tuesday morning was nothing but nervous energy and my hoomin trying to keep it together for dear life.

The doctors started working on me around one in the afternoon. If something had gone sideways, Dr. Gronsky would have been calling with an update, so no news was good news.

I survived the anesthesia. I survived the intubation, even though the team had a hard time with that.

They found the stone and flushed it out! The doctor said it was one of the best rhinoscopies she'd done.

I survived the post-op. Later, everybun decided it would be best for me to spend a romantic night at the hospital.

Late Wednesday morning, my hoomin picked me up and brought me home. Of course, I didn't feel like eating much or pooping, and Wednesday started to feel like a M*nd*y in a straight jacket. Around seven in the evening, I got a dose of Metoclopramide because we were afraid things were turning to worms. I almost ended up back at the hospital.

But, hoomin had enough sense to call buntie Susan first instead of panicking early. I ended up running some laps from the kitchen, past the Devil's Spicy Hay behind the oven to my room. Then I got some belleh rubs. I ran a couple more laps.

I dropped some gold in the bin at about nine-thirty or ten at night. I had some salaaad, and the cookie got it. It was a good night.

I'm still taking a mix of pain and anti-inflammatory medicine twice a day and getting nose drops twice a day. The stone and sample from my nose went to the lab, and we expect a follow-up call from the vet about the results.

I will probably get another CT scan (hopefully at a discount, as it would be part of the follow-up) to see if they got everything or if there's another, smaller stone farther back in the nasal passage.

But today, we're just going to chillax - tucks out and all. Even my hoomin has no plans except for some arting or reading. I'm eating and pooping, and I'm in pretty good spirits.

This thing was in the making for at least two years. My first round of nebulizing happened on June 26, 2022 (https://www.disapprovingbun.com/2022/06/the-bunday-evening-thumps_26.html).

We would like to thank the team at BluePearl for taking such good care of me: Sarah Gronsky, VMD, Koutney McNicholas, CVT, Tyler Doyle, APCA, and anybun who's name we're not aware of.

Thank you, everybun, for all your prayers and good vibes <3

We'll keep you posted!

The Bunday Evening Thumps

Gus
Espresso

Good evening, Everybun!

My friend, 'Spresso, got the new drops yesterday and is doing well enough. Ofloxacin seems to help, but to be honest, we just hope things won't turn for the worse before Tuesday. 

The good news is my hoomins finally took the hint and slept in, then loafed, and loafed some more. I sayz, "Not enough!"

Another good news is that my hoomin processed all the pictures he took for the rescue a couple of weeks ago. The bad news is he got another idea for a painting. Sigh.

In the meantime - no news will be good news. Hopefully, we'll have a good update for everybun on Saturday.

Goodnight, and good luck!

Espresso, Charlie, and Gus Update

Gus
Espresso and Charlie

Hellos, Everybun!

It's been a quiet, short week here. We're doing well - even Spressy is holding steady. Yes, we're just waiting for Tuesday, but I think we'll make it OK. 

My hoonins, though, are in dire need of a nap, a good loaf, or something. Their last grandma passed on Tuesday, and they're coping the best they can. This loss feels especially heady and difficult.

And that's why I sayz to them, "Naps and extra cookies, of course! Movies maybe, and naps and extra cookies." But do you think they listen? No. And my hoomin will refuse to get any sleep - again - and instead will stay up arting or something. Well, don't complain to me!

 We'll keep you posted!
