Eulogy of a little Lagomorph

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.

Bunny Eulogy:

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 . . .
Matthew 28:5-6
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.

Great Eulogoy George...sorry to hear about the bunny.

I'll be praying for your mother, she is strong like you so I know she will make it through....the Lord see's it all and He is a GREAT God!!!

I'm ready for the Sun too!

Just wanted you guys to celebrate with us....Jonah is now consistantly using the #2 potty time and has recently volunteered on his own to do his part in vaccumming the house! I'm not was so funny to watch. I was unloading groceries to walk in the house and see him using the vacumm on the floor...he had spilled something and wanted to take care of it on his own! I couldn't believe what I was seeing myself! Now, when he drops crumbs on the floor he grabs the vaccum, it's a trip to watch. So hey, things are looking UP at the Howell house in that area of life anyways! We have a true leader on our hands for sure! Help us Lord, give us Wisdom!

Have a great day in the Lord.

I was just telling some friends how much I need the sun to come out. It is depressing and it makes me sooooo sleepy, too. You are not alone. I could never live in the north. I would much rather sweat in the sunshine then freeze in the clouds. Anyway, prayerfully the sun will stay out all weekend and we will be reenergized.
