Out of the woods?

Well, things are looking better and better on the Stewie front. His appetite has returned to normal - you can see him munching on some parsley in this photo - and his output is nearly there. Tonight he even binked (jumped in the air for no reason) which normally is a sign of happiness and definitely is not done when a rabbit is in discomfort. It was the first time we've seen him bink in over a week! Definitely a good thing!


It will take us a while to feel comfortable and stop monitoring him closely, but I'm so glad all the plans we made for the worst case scenario do not have to be put into play just yet. Knock on wood, Stewie may be with us for a long time.

Thank you all so much for your thoughts and prayers! We are so happy we may have more time with our little furchild! I just wish you could all meet him -- he's such a lovable little bun!

I know that Stewie thanks you all for the warm thoughts as well, and if he could he would stamp you a card that might look very much like the one pictured here. Alas, he has not mastered stamping (yet!) so I had to make the card myself. For the main image I used a retired Stampin' Up! set called Birthday Bunnies. I know this isn't a birthday card, but I thought the present could really be used for any occasion. The sentiment is from Think Happy Thoughts -- a super versatile little set. So there you go - a thanks to all of you from the bunny!

Hurray for stewie! I know how hard it is to care for little bunnies. My daughter's were walking home and it was getting ready to storm. They almost stepped on this little bunny in the grass and it hopped off and fell into the storm drain. Or so they thought-they looked into the drain and there was a cup with no lid lodged in the drain, THe bunny was in the cup! They brought it home, we thought we could take care of it, bu the next day when I got home from work-it wasn't eating and was laying on it's side. We took it to the vets, and there was a lady who cares for little bunnies coming to pick it up. I called the next day from work and they told me the bunny didn't make it even until she got there to get it. My daughter cried and cried. So you are doing a great job with that little bunny. The vet told me baby bunnies are not very hearty out of the wild like that. So keep up the good work and way to go little bunny!
