Just got off the phone with Dr. Ayres...he said Maddy is awake, and looking around. He tried giving her the greens i packed, but she hasnt eaten yet..but who can blame her? his exact words were, "it doesnt surprise me that shes not eating yet she went through hell with that surgery.." wow, he went on to say that rather than forcing it out of a small hole and risking pus leaking into her abdominal cavity that instead he made a big incision from her chest to her pelvis area. he also said that he doesnt know how she lived with it..or how shes even alive now but that she's a strong little bunny. she's not out of the woods yet and the next day is very crucial..he said to call back in the morning and if shes still around we can talk about taking her home. i love his pessimistic optimism lol. one thing i know for sure is that having a rabbit is not for the feint of heart...i think i might have almost passed out a couple times haha.
thank you thank you thank you all...nothing i could ever say or do could ever repay each and every one of you for being there for me and my little frankenstein lion. love to you all..
