Hi and welcome to "Fairy Castle Farm" I hope you enjoy your stay! I should introduce myself, my name is Sweetie and I am a resident of Fairy Castle Farm. Well it's not actually a farm, but a suburban home in the southern suburbs of South Australia. I am a rare Old English Spot Bunny, and absolutely love life here with all my family and some good friends too... let me take you on a tour ....
Sweetie is feeling just too sad at the moment to update the blog.....So I'll do it. I guess you all want to know what is happening with our little Princess?
"Yes, please mummy.... I have been so worried and missing my little sister more than words can say".
"I have been praying really, really hard for her to get better, and come home from hospital. Bunny wishes are really super potent and strong you know!"
"Not a moment goes by that I am not thinking about my little human, even when I'm in my litter tray".
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 'It's exactly the same for me, Sweetie. I miss her terribly. We had our whole school holiday time together planned out! Extra cuddles everyday. Giggles galore and game time. Oh and all those extra tasty tidbits she gives me when she is home. I can't forget the beautiful piano practice, I love to listen to. Then there is the fun of listening to her read to me, and seeing the beautiful pictures she sketches of me. "Oh, Teegee, do tell us when she will be home......" (*sniff*)
'We wait, night and day for our Princess........' any sign?
Well guys, it's not quite the news I was hoping to give, she needs to stay in hospital a little longer. But at least "Bunny" or as he is affectionately know as, 'Bun-Bun' (by our little Princess), is there with her every step of the way!
Sadly, she is still in hospital. This however, is where the Nurses are taking the best care of her. The Doctors are also doing their utmost to make her feel better as quickly as possible. So this is where she will need to stay a little longer. Bun-Bun has everything under control and doing his best to keep us posted. He has been such a wonderful support and always volunteers to go first when something unpleasant needs to happen, so our little Princess can see it's not so bad and scary, no matter how worried she feels. He wears his bandages proudly!
So with a wave good bye from Bun-Bun, we thank every bun for the words of support - wishes and prayers. We feel they really make a difference and although it was not the news we were hoping for, at least we know she is surrounded by her loved ones. It is comforting to know that although she is so tired from being ill for such a long time now, she is putting her all into recovering quickly. It also helps to know that she is being cared for by the best.
So hoping for improvement in leaps (well hops) and bounds, we will let you know soon how she is progressing.
'How on earth did this happen?' you say. Well we are not sure. As you know My Yollie was on call for Jury Duty so our little miss was staying with family until that Monday afternoon. A few suspect causes have been noted but no one else got sick and there are no longer any samples to test. So it remains an unfortunate, unthinkable and horrible mystery.
So as you can see it is a horrendous and very nasty illness. With no vaccine or cure currently available. It needs to run it's course, she needs to be able to fight it. Unfortunately our little one did suffer complications by the way of dehydration.
Although she is a brave fighter and drank as much as humanly possible and did everything asked of her medically to treat her illness, and then some, the nasty bugs were and are still, also continuing to be very strong.
No matter how much fluid she puts in, they (the bugs) pushed out, by whatever means they needed. Under medical guidance a home strategy was strictly followed. However, 7 long days later, exhausted, dehydrated, extremely sore and kilograms lighter, there was not option but to take our little princess to the emergency room.
Since then (Monday) she has remained in hospital, quarantined with My Yollie, (due to the nature of the contagious infection). She is still receiving rehydration therapy as I type this and putting up the bravest fight we have ever heard of.
We hope and pray with all our hearts for no further complications and a complete and speedy recovery.
Pictures speak a thousand words, and these are no exception, we are all SAD!
Please be patient with us if we do not have much to blog for the time - but we will try and keep you all updated as much as possible. Thanks again for visiting, sorry it has been under such sad circumstances.
