Heart of a lion..

So the Dr. Ayres told me to give him a call at 9:30am today...I couldn't wait, the office opens at 8:00am..I called at 8:06 and spoke with the front desk. The conversation went something like this..."Hi, my name is Megan, and my bunny had surgery yesterday. I know the doc told me to call at 9:30, but I am so anxious...*pause* there's no nice way to put this...but...ummm...is she still alive?" (longest pause of my life) Receptionist: "Yes honey, I was just talking to her and she's eating her breakfast right now." Me:*silently squeals*

Be still, my heart!!!

9:13am: Dr. Ayres calls and tells me that I can come pick her up at any time. He is clear that she isn't out of the woods yet, but he wants to send her home because she will recover faster and better.

1:38pm: I anxiously wait in the lobby at the vet office as they look for her chart so the doc can talk to me. The same receptionist brings Maddy out in her carrier. She sets her down and opens the top for me...I say, "Hi Maddy!" and the most perfect ball of fluff pokes her head out to look at me. I swear she was smiling. I could have died with a happy heart.

1:56pm: We get home and I put Maddy in the room I have prepared for her. She can't even wait and jumps out of her carrier and eats some hay. "Look what I can do mom!" Did I mention she's pooping? Eating...pooping...and SO FULL OF LIFE. This little miracle Frankenstein bunny....my little love. The next few days..and for the rest of my life I will be fussing over her. Bunnies have some sort of brainwashing power lol.

Sorry no pictures yet...my phone is dead at the moment!

once again, thank you all...my heart is so full of love.



  1. I am weeping tears of utter, pure, happiest JOY!
    She is going to be fine. Until I hear otherwise, I continue my nightly rosary for her.
    She could probably face down a lion right now. What strength she has!
