Poor little Bailey went off to the vet this morning for her spay surgery. I’ve read for hours about the surgery, risks, post-op care, etc etc, but I’m still a nervous bunny mom. There was another bun in for an emergency surgery… I feel better knowing that other people trust their bunnies to this vet. The doctor reassured me, talked me through the procedure, and told me they’ve only lost one bunny in 10 years… that’s pretty good, I think, considering they see rabbits all the time. Bailey will also be in someone’s arms when she wakes up, which makes me feel better. Even though she doesn’t like being picked up, I think it will be nice for someone to be right there when she comes to.
To keep myself busy, I cleaned and sanitized Bailey’s cage, vacuumed, and got things ready for her to come back. I know she’ll be groggy and won’t want to move, so I took out her litterbox and replaced it with a bunch of paper towels in her favorite corner. Her favorite blankies are with her at the vet’s (along with about 100 other things her nervous mommy brought along), but she’ll have those, too, to snuggle with when she comes home. I’m sure everything will go smoothly and she’ll be binkying around in no time, but I’m so worried about my little baby!
