Maple WoMER: A Rabbit Hole

 

Maple WoMER recovering on 09/23/12

It has been a month now since Maple Bunny got sick and transmogrified herself into Maple WoMER. She didn’t really do it to herself, she had a lot of help from the vet. And I guess her infection did its part.

This post is going to be a little gross so you might want to stop here if you are squeamish. To give you an idea of how gross it is going to be, the rabbit hole I refer to in the post title, is the hole in the side of her head that Maple has now that she doesn’t have an eye. So pretty darned gross. Turn back now if you’re not up for that.

In case you do decide to turn back, I’ll just let you know that her current prognosis is guarded. Her infection is better this week but it is still there, probably hanging around in the bones of her face. She might need to be on penicillin the rest of her life.

Maple WoMER: The Dread Pirate Rabbit

 

Yo, ho, ho and a bottle of carrot juice!

Maple WoMER (see this post if you don’t know how she got that name) has spent the past couple of weeks really living up to her name. I don’t know why she would do that because it seems like the most horrible thing ever. Not only has Melly been complaining about how much Maple costs ($2500 and counting!), but Maple has suffered a lot. This week she had to go to the vet and have her eye taken out! As terrible as that sounds, I think Maple feels better without the eye than she did with it. I don’t want to get into details about why.

Me and Maple sharing dinner

I know I might have complained a few times about having to share with Maple Bunny (okay, maybe more than just a few times), but I take it all back now. Poor little Maple is very sick.

The Eyes Have It

The eye of Caplin Rous

The above photo is probably the most famous photo of any capybara’s eye, mainly because there are not really any famous photos of capybara eyes. I’d like to change that. Clearly, Caplin Rous had the prettiest eyes ever but all capybaras have lovely, cool, interesting eyes.
