two steps forward, one step back

A mixed report for this morning. Stewie ate some of the lettuce we left for him overnight, but no litter box "deposits". So we're back to baby food and seeing what happens today. Obvioulsy I'm thrilled that he's still with us and eating some on his own, but being disappointed each morning with lack of progress is really hard. Dspite trying to not get too excited and hopeful, each night that I've gone to bed since Sunday I couldn't help but hope tha tthe next morning things would be back to normal or at least that we'd have evidence of going back to normal. But no such luck.

To top it all off we're having a really slow internet connection, so I can;t even upload anything for you to look at. Not that I have anything new, but I was goign to show you the birthday card I stamped for my mom, just so you'd have something other than the bunny drama to look at while you're here. So now tomorrow I get to entertain Comcast (again!) amidst all the other issues.

The slow connection is keeping me from logging into my comcast e-mail, so some of you may be getting messages from me today from my yahoo account. Sorry!

I guess they do say when it rains it pours, right? Hopefully these April showers will, indeed, bring May flowers for us.

I sure do hope that your bunny Stewie makes a speedy recovery.

Your card is beautiful.

Diane, I am glad to hear your MIL is doing OK. All appendages are crossed for Stewie.

Oh my gosh Diane, I am so sorry to hear about Stewie being sick. Keep him warm and comfortable and I'm hoping for the best. Keep us posted.

Diane, I'm thinking about all of you and am hoping that Stewie pulls through - you're being a great fur baby mom taking care of him!

You're gonna think I'm nuts, but I think I may have the cure for Sweetie's "Deposit" problem.

We have shih tzu's and when they have this problem the vet recommends citracal and vaseline, take about a tablespoon of each, mix together and allow the pet to lick it. If they don't do this on their own, smear it onto their palet, try to get at least 1/2 the mixture in them.

It will take about 3 to 6 hours, but I guarentee a 'deposit'. If they get a tummy ache, instead of baby food, fix that baby some white rice, with a little butter and salt.

My 2 cents! Good luck!
