*UPDATE ON GIZZY* (2/10)
First of all, I just wanted to tell you all thank you so much for your kind words and prayers. I am so overwhelmed with all of your support. I am hoping that all of those positive vibes will help Gizzy’s outcome.
I wanted to give you all a brief update to let you know how he is doing, since so many of you have asked me to keep you in the loop. Thank you so much for that, I appreciate all of your empathy.
I went to visit the little man yesterday in the vet, which was so upsetting. Poor little thing was hooked up to so many tubes. It is hard to see someone you love like that.
The vet told me that she spoke with the specialist Dr. Zyra, who actually handled Gizzy’s surgery when he was fixed, she said that she wanted to perform surgery on him tomorrow (Saturday). She thinks it is the best way to handle the situation and even though it is dangerous…the fact that he did well before with anesthetics may be a good sign that he will make it through OK.
He was able to come home yesterday so that we could make him as comfortable as possible before the surgery. I plan on asking A LOT of questions to Dr. Zyra, because I know she will be upfront with me.
I am so very nervous and I am having a hard time of not thinking about all the things that could happen to him.
Anyways, that is what is going on. Thank you all again for your support and please keep sending your prayers and positive thoughts our way, especially on Saturday morning.
*UPDATE ON GIZZY*
Please say a prayer for my bunny Gizzy.
He’s in the vet right now. He went for a check up on his leg, which is better, and the vet found that his bladder has “sludge” in it. They explained it as him having too much calcium in his bladder. Apparently it can be pretty dangerous for bunnies and it could cause blockage for him.
He stayed overnight at the vet last night with little to no improvement. They are pumping liquids into him and giving him some medications too…hoping that it might clear him up.
I talked with the vet this morning and she let me know about his status and that she wanted to keep him longer. However, I got some not so good news…
If they can’t get him to improve in the next few days, surgery may have to happen…but, he is too little to operate on (he is only 4lbs). In the event that they do have to operate, they cannot…so they would have to put him down. 🙁
As you can imagine, I am completely distraught. I am so upset.
He is an absolute doll and my little baby so I am hoping that he will pull through and everything will be OK. He has a birthday coming up…I just want to make sure I can celebrate it with him.
I know that some people don’t understand when people get so upset over their pets, but he is family to me. Losing him would be the same as losing a close family member. I am sure some of you know what I mean. Even if you don’t…
Please send your prayers and thoughts to him. I will be forever grateful.
Love you Gizzy ♥
