Indy - Day 4

An update on Indy the Bunny:

I called the vet this morning. There's no one there overnight, so the techs are going through their evaluations and they would call me around 11:30.

Update: The doctor called and said that she has a bunny that wants to know why she's still there! Apparently she's up, alert, and watching everything going on and is not laying in the back of the cage. So, I drove out to get her. Her bag of meds is a bit daunting. She has a lot of drugs that need to be administered, and if she doesn't eat, we've got a huge syringe and some powdered Critical Care mix that she'll have to be force-fed.

Indy is on her way home!
I brought her home and let her out of her carrier. She looked around and walked to her cage. She jumped into her litter tray and tried to urinate. Nothing. She went upstairs, took two licks at her water bottle, walked over to the fresh endive I had placed there and took two bites and laid down.

She stayed there for a couple of hours. She tried urinating a few times - each time she struggled and only managed to produce 3 or 4 drops.

It was killing me - she was in the same state as she was on Sunday. If I pet her, she was vibrating - A sign that she was in pain and not well.

Oh, oh... Indy is still not well
It was tearing me up inside. I had to call the doctor and let them know that she's still in trouble. I had to wait for a call back, but I finally talked to the doctor. We had a long discussion of things that she was going to try to help with the bladder infection and the "sludge" that was sitting in there. All the time she was upbeat. She told me the staff would be ready to bring Indy back.

Indy does NOT want to go back to the vet
I put Indy into her carrier. She struggled and fought. It was if she was telling me she didn't want to go back - she just wanted to stay home. But that wasn't an option - she needs to get treated and she needs to get better, and that is clearly something I can't do.

I drove her back to the vet. We pulled into the parking lot and I opened her door to pet her. She loved her pettings and it was if she was trying to tell me "Dad! Please! I don't want to go back there!" I closed her door and we went inside. I handed her off to a tech who was waiting for her. Indy disappeared into the back of the facility. The tech came back with the empty carrier and I drove home alone.

I feel terrible. I felt like I was dumping her. I I cried on the way home like a baby.

I want my little girl back home...
