Monday Mario Part II

Since most of my bunny blogger friends are not on Twitter, I thought I would post an update today.  I'm just back from the veterinarian sans Mario :(  The vet wanted to keep him overnight to monitor and treat him.

Mario and I are just x-ray magnets this year.
That big round thing on the left is his stomach, and the vet thinks it is full of gas. The black stuff on the right are his intestines, also gassy.  She doesn't think there is a physical blockage, but just that the gas in the intestines have slowed motility and everything is backing up a bit.  They are putting him on pain meds, anti-gas meds, anti-gas-producing-bacteria meds, and fluids.  Depending on when his stomach comes down a bit, they will start feeding him some food, too.  His temperature is normal which the vet says is a good sign.

The vet didn't really start throwing me carrots of hope until I broke down crying so I'm really hoping he'll pull through.  It was really hard to leave him there :(

These are different Monday Mario shots, for sure.

Let's hope it's what they think and all comes out OK.

This sort of thing has happened to us about 10 times. It never gets easier or less scary or sad.

A happy bunny is a farting bunny. (The mantra of my bunny guru friend) May Mario be the hoppiest of happy bunnies soon.
