    Oh, dear ... I'm just reading through this thread again. I hope that I'm misunderstanding ... :(. I hope that nobody thought that I was discouraging Carolyn about posting about Fauna's illness. I thought it was clear that I'm one of Carolyn's biggest, if not THE biggest, supporter and that Fauna is one of my own precious babies.

    Yes, I'm going to assume that I misunderstood. :)Carolyn, I hope that you know that I wasn't trying to discourage you... but then I know that Carolyn knows me ...

    It's 3:51 a.m. I think that I must be sleep deprived ... I'm rambling like a loon ... :(

    Oh God, Raspberry Swirl - and Everyone,

    Didn't take it that way at all. I just don't want people to be sad.Your note along with everyone else's was extremely heartwarming. I took it the way it was meant to be taken. In no means did anyone's note come across as discouraging. Definitely not. It is quite the opposite.Quite the Opposite, I can assure you.

    I feel nothing but strength, love, and support from the things each of you has written. Trust me! As you don't want me to be going through this, I don't want you to be sad.

    It was my note that was incorrectly stated. I certainly don't want anyone thinking that I don't appreciate it or that I was left feeling negatively impacted.

    There's no Way that is true. Your notes, words, and love for Fauna builds me up like you can't believe. I guess we're all just watching out for each other and in the meantime afraid of bringing each other down. Believe me, I can't stress it enough, I get nothing but positive feelings, compassion, and concern from the folks that have responded to Fauna's issues.
    I love you each dearly for that and it means so much to me. You just have no idea how touched I am by it.

    Hey, Carolyn! No, no problem at all with your note.I just wanted to make sure that my note wasn't awkwardly stated. :) On top of that I was reading under a haze of a lack of sleep, so I just wanted to make sure that there was no misunderstanding.

    You know that I have great love for you, King Tucks, and QueenFauna.[​IMG]:D:D:D

    I'm so sorry you guys. None of your notes were incorrectly stated at all. Not at all.

    They were beautiful.

    Can't tell you how much I appreciate them. I didn't mean tosound ungrateful. I'm sorry. I truly am.I didn't mean to make you paranoid about what you write when it was sobeautifully stated.

    As a matter of fact, I've printed out this post and the GI Stasis postand will keep them because of the beautiful sentiments you've shared.

    No, no, Carolyn!!!! It wasn't you ...not at all. You didn't do anything in the least wrong. Actually it wasn't even you that I thought misunder stood ... I thought that others did ... and ... I thought that I have had mis written.

    Okay you two sleep deprived women....I don't think anybody misunderstood anybody!Bunny Mommy, I had to go read your post to try to figure out what in the world you were talking about! :shock:As I recall, Carolyn mentioned something about hesitating to let us know what was going on with Fauna because she didn't want to bring everyone down. I believe Pamela was responding to that and trying to let Carolyn know that we want to be there for her, no matter what. As is typical of my controlling nature, I had to get my two cents in, so I agreed with her.We all love each other...forever and ever...happily everafter...theend![​IMG]

    I've done some more homework on this "condition" that my baby Girl has.

    I'll request that when my vet does the Urinary Tract Infection test andthe Glucose test, I'll ask for a 'Specific Gravity' test as well. I'mnot sure what exactly that means, 'Specific Gravity', but if it fallswithin a certain range, that is an early indicator of a kidney disease.It shows up in the urine test before it shows up in a blood test.

    My vet had said to me that the urine test will tell them a lot, and whoknows if she was planning on that test or not, but from the rabbitspecialist veterinarian and Kathy Smith, they each said that she is avery good vet. :)

    They were all quite impressed with her exam as it was complete and verythorough and gave them a lot of information. They all feel that Faunaand Tucker are in good hands with this vet.

    :)

    Fauna and I sure know that, BunnyMommy. I can feel BunnyDanny at work here.

    I hope everyone here, when they have to have a urine test done on their bunnies asks for that "Specific Gravity" range done while they're testing the urine. Can't hurt, right? And as Kathy Smith said, fluid therapy did make a difference in her rabbit that was diagnosed with kidney failure.

    By the Way...

    As far as the wax in Fauna's ears that were just cleaned out two months ago and had to be done again the other day:

    From what I'm told, just as some people are more prone to ear wax, so are rabbits. There's nothing you can give to the rabbit to break the wax down. They simply have to have their ears cleaned out. I asked the professionals, is this like going to the vet and having them clip their nails? Is this something I can do? They all said No. Don't do it yourself. You can go too deep, and that would cause a lot of problems.If your rabbit is prone to ear wax, have it cleaned by a vet that knows what they're doing. Don't take it on yourself. Even Kathy Smith who wrote the book about Rabbit Health takes her rabbits to the vet's to do that.

    LMAO!!!

    Carolyn, I'm glad everything is working out with Fauna. :) It sounds like you have a gem of a vet with your two babies. Thanks for posting all of this information for us too, I would have never known about any of this otherwise.

    Raspberry Swirl,

    Thank you so much for defining the "Specific Gravity" test.

    In this household, it applies for us Gals that never had babies as well.

    -Carolyn


    Thanks Steph. ;)
