The sewing has come to a screeching halt as Tempie is very sick. One of her molars is infected and needs to come out since it's also broken. This is the same tooth that the vet tried to remove once before and she nearly bled to death.
Needless to say, we're all (including her veterinarians) slightly apprehensive about the prospects of this procedure. However the situation can be summed up by the following points:
1. We ignore the issues and she dies in a slow and painful manner
2. We go forward with the surgery and she dies under anesthesia with no pain
3. We go forward with the surgery and all of the vets' skills and a lot of good fortune will give her more time to enjoy life.
Obviously we're hoping for option 3.
Since she won't eat on her own right now, much of my day is spent feeding her by hand. The goal is to get more food into the bunny than onto the bunny and myself, but that isn't always the case.
For the curious or those who may need the information, I'm feeding her 3 tablespoons of canned pumpkin (if you have fresh and want to boil it, go for it) mixed with about 1 tablespoon of baby food bananas and some water. I've used fresh bananas before but they aren't always ripe when I need them.
Of course this means we both end up orange.
