We have our first bunny casualty. The one of the 2nd litter that had gotten out the cage earlier this week went on to bunny heaven sometime last night or this morning. We noticed he was not as active as the others for a day and I went out this afternoon to check on them and he was limp and unresponsive. I removed him and replaced all of the bedding material in the nest box in case there would be a smell of any kind that might disturb the others. Now we have 15 little ones remaining and all appear to be doing fine. They are eating out of their moms food container like big bunnies.
Oh, little bunny
We will miss you so
and your pink little nose
And coat white as snow
The joy you brought to us all
As we gazed upon your face
Will be missed sorely
For none can take your place
Carry on we will
With your siblings so fare
And hopefully one day, as they say
"We will see you over there"
Pause, and calmly think of that . . .
Medical stuff: I have a new finding on my surgical scar - there is a small hernia just below the belly button less than an inch in diameter. I noticed it a few days ago. It was also noted on the CT. The doctors do not seem to be concerned since it is not hurting, so it will be on the back burner for the time being. I just put some pressure on it if I cough or sneeze.
We miss the Sunshine! Some folks are beginning to think they are in Seattle, Washington - which is famous for dreary, dull weather. I don't know if it is the weather or my condition, but I am so tired 80% of the day to the point of being able to lay down and go to sleep. So, I set certain goals to complete throughout the day - wash this, clean that, those sorts of things. Sometimes I make it, sometimes I don't. It could also be the sinus stuff, too.
I spoke with my mother today and she, dad and Aunt Eva are doing okay.She had her first treatment of the second type of chemo today - she has three treatments left. She has been very anemic to the point of having to receive shots to help boost her red blood cell count, like I used to get. If this does not work, she will need to have a blood transfusion to help get her counts up.
Here is what Job had to say . . .
Job 14:1-2 Job
"Man born of woman is of few days and full of trouble.
He springs up like a flower and withers away;
like a fleeting shadow, he does not endure."
Here's what The Angel of God had to say . . .
The angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid,
for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified.
He is not here; he has risen, just as he said.
Come and see the place where he lay.
Now that's the last word.
