I love my Rabbits so much, they are my EVERYTHING. The only 'family' I have and the only reason I exist

but the emotional toll having so many aged and/or terminally ill Rabbits plus now some who have become acutely ill (unrelated and different conditions) i just feel like i am drowning :cry:

i am likely to be losing at least 2 in the next 24 hours

i cant cope

sorry

:cry:

I've stayed away from posting on your threads recently because I'm not sure where we stand with each other, however, I can't not reply to this because I totally hear your desperation, fear and panic. If that's not ok, then please do just ignore my reply.

I don't have any words or anything that can change anything, but I do hear you. I've been feeling horrific with just Hay Monster and I have my family around me. I can imagine that multiplying that hugely to take into account many bunnies and very minimal support, and it will feel the most wretched of all times. You know you're 'trapped' because you have to stay and stick around for your bunnies because they need you to, yet you knwo that tolerating all that is going on is totally unbearble.

I won't be the only one who hears and can relate.

There are many of us who would be there for you in a second if you wanted us to be, even if we couldn't be there is person.

Get your Magic Dressing Gown Blanket, and wrap yourself up in it, and then go and get lots of bunny snuggles and cuddles.

Each moment as it comes.

obviously I don't know you, but I can see how much comfort and support you give to so many posters on here (that's without all the love and support you give to your furry friends)
you've just got to focus on the positives as much as possible, make sure you spend a bit of extra time doing the fun things with them, give them that extra treat
but most of all remind yourself how many rabbits live a healthy and happy life due to all the knowledge you've passed on looking after sick buns, when I see rabbits lounging on the sun on here and think of the excellent lives and chances RU posters give them.
You're a massive part of that JJ and you have to try to look forward to the next happy moment with them, because even sick bunnies have the habit of surprising you.
Find some happy moments in some old threads to try to help cheer you up, and don't be afraid to take a little time for yourself your little bunsters will benefit from a recharged you once you've had a little downtime

I think that you are strong enough. Try to see it from the view that you have given your bunnies a wonderful life with you. Unfortunately it does come a time for them to go, when that happens and we get so upset it is only because we have been lucky enough to have the love of that animal .

Jane, this is an impossible task for you to see through. You are so wonderful at looking after all your furry family, the only comfort I can offer is that if you are losing them it's because there is absolutely nothing else which is possible or fair to put them through. I am just so so very sorry and will be thinking of and worrying about you today.

My heart goes out to you. I have only one bun, who is nearly 11, but he is my life as well (sad, I know). He's not very well either and the thought of losing him fills me with panic and terror. I'm sorry you're going through such an awful time. Sending hugs and thinking of you. xxxx

Really sorry to hear that. I'm sure you will cope as from what I've read on here you seem a very strong woman. You've provided a loving home to your rabbits and they have been well looked after.

It must be an awful time for you but we're all here to listen if you want to rant or curse. I was heartbroken when Doughnut was ill and she recovered so I just can't imagine what you're going through.

I hope you are looking after yourself or you have someone else to and someone to give you lots of hugs.

I'm so sorry you are struggling Jane, but you are surviving, even if only just, something to hang on to and be proud of. Thinking of you x

You are a lovely person and clearly have a very big heart. Your buns taking up the majority of room in your heart. Just cause they leave this world, doesn't mean they aren't still imprinted in your heart.

Huge hugs, Jane.

I can't begin to imagine how you are feeling. One bun going into stasis fills with me panic. The amount of care and dedication you give your brood is awe inspiring and I am sure that I speak for others when I say that you are so well respected here because of that. I am always writing down bits of knowledge that I have picked up from you.

Everyone is here for you, please try and take a little comfort from the knowledge that you have given your rabbits a wonderful life. They will have had a longer life with you than anywhere else. I hope that the pride that you should feel in yourself will help you through xxx

30-04-2012, 02:43 PM
Sending hugs and vibes as well. I hope the bunnies make a turn for the better and the pressure eases. I know how much responsibility I feel with 10 relatively healthy, most young, so I really understand how overwhelming it it with your crew, especially the fear that you are missing something that you should know about.

Rhianna
30-04-2012, 03:06 PM
Is there anything any of us on here can do to help you at all, Jane?

I am worried about Furby - and that's just one bun - but I do know how overwhelming life can be sometimes. At these times I almost shrink and the world grows (which probably doesn't make any sense at all:oops:) Can you try and just take one hour at a time and concentrate on getting through that?

nothing any of us say will take away the pain of losing a loved pet, but do take in the words.
I've said this before to many people.
The fact you are so sad when having to say goodbye is a good thing, it shows you care. If you were not sad or could shrug a death off easily then what would that say about your bond with your animals? Just make sure you acknowledge feeling sad is normal and will lessen after you've allowed yourself time to grieve.
Let yourself shed bucketloads of tears for each one who goes to the bridge, then know they are watching over you with gratitude and would want you to carry on looking after the others and yourself .
How lucky you are that you have so many wonderful memories of such a huge number of amazing animals that you have cared for. Don't let the fact that we are all only here for what seems like a visit, ruin the pleasure and love you give them, and they give you back.

Jane, I am grieved that you are struggling. ((((((((((((HUGS)))))))))))))
You love your bunnies so much. Your deep connection with them is so beautiful and if I were a bunny, poorly or otherwise, there is no doubt whom I would choose to be at my bedside. You!
And look how your charges fight to stay in your tender care! I see a true family reflected in all your posts about your dear ones. So many happy times too that bring smiles to all of us here.
The only sad part of the happy times are moments like these. :(
It breaks our hearts when these tiny souls leave us to be at the beauty of the Bridge, not because they wish to leave, but because the body eventually can no longer soldier on. Still these precious creatures you've spent so much of your life caring for know the unwavering love and devotion that you show them and they are comforted. Their eyes gaze upon you with gratitude and true love like nothing else we know in life. Why should we want to have to say goodbye?

I hope that things are not so bad that your bunnies are reaching that crossroads, but if so, please know that here is one more who is (virtually) holding your hand in those moments. You are not alone, Jane...even if you can't see us...we are with you.
Your posts have helped me to see new ways to help my own bunnies. I can only hope I may return in kind the help you have given me. And I so wish I could take away the hurt and exhaustion you must feel. Although I admit I probably sound more scattered than anything.
For some reason I just thought of Freckle...how she would seem almost to be slipping away and then she'd rally. I am sure it has been because you were her nurse. We just spoke about that intuition you feel in a different post. Sometimes it is easier to communicate with those who have no words. It is a bond that transcends all barriers.

So please let any support I can give to you not be in words, but in knowing that I care and that someone is, in her own mind, watching with you and hoping that whatever you may be facing that you know you and your bunny family are in my thoughts.
Hugs to you and noserubs to the bunnies.

Usually when we lose one we give a home to another rescue bun but I just can't do it anymore and there is two of us so I don't know how you cope Jane it's an awful lot to cope with and the heartache of losing them is just to hard to bare sometimes, sending you lots of hugs and thinking about you xxxxxxxxxxx

I know its not the same as I have many animals but they are all different species,I am worried that all of mine are getting middle aged or elderly,I have lost two in the last 3 weeks,and it is really making me feel sad,there are hardly any more places in our 150ft garden to buy them with their little grave stones :( I know that my animals are more than just a hobby and I do spend all my time/money on them rather than on going out/drinking/smoking or shopping like other people do.I am happy and content spending my spare time with my wonderful pets

I hope that your poorly bunnies improve xxxx

I will just update as briefly as I can, sorry if it sounds 'cold and clinical'. That is far from how I am feeling ..........

Liam- Has a major infection involving his ear, eye and mouth. He has had surgery and is on a cocktail of meds. He is also on fluids and syringe feeds as he has not eaten for himself for 3 days :cry: He is very, very poorly :cry:

Patrick- GI stasis, responded to treatment but had to have a Dental today. Seems to be recovering OK so far.

Jo- Another seizure followed by 36 hours of GI stasis. Now doing OK.....til the next time.............

Colin- Still bad ear infection and needing lots of meds plus ear canal flushes. But is at least eating for himself now

William- Arthritic pain increased (William is 10), lots of muscle wastage. Now doing better on increased analgesia and massages

Brian- Probable Adrenal Tumour, not a good response to drug treatment, only gave respite from symptoms for 36 hours. Then he was back to a manic state again, exhausted himself and went into shock. Found collapsed with head in water bowl. Responded to emergency treatment, now stable but obviously a decision needs to be made as we are bordering on 'quality of life' territory now :cry:

Hal- Chronic pneumonia, been on treatment for over 2 months, now marked deterioration. Another 'decision' soon :cry:

Murphy- Has a thymoma, not been so good these last few days. Palliative care protocol changed, now more stable but again another 'decision' is not far away :cry:

So all in all I am feeling really low, but trying VERY hard to not show it to my Rabbits

Thanks for 'listening' xx

Have you considered trying to find new homes for some of your well bunnies, as its clear you are struggling and having less bunnies you would better able to cope.

The problem with taking on so many bunnies is, if ones own health deteriorates, one just becomes overwhelmed.

Thanks so much everyone, I really do appreciate the support. Apart from C and L I dont have anyone else to talk to about my fears for my Rabbit Family, so RU has been my lifeline

Liam has just had his evening meds and a feed so I took the opportunity to take a photo of him. He is normally such a feisty chap, but now he just lets me do anything to him :cry:

Personally I think Janes rabbits are good for her overall health and they wouldnt find anyone able to offer them better care so although its hard when they are ill they are better off with her and Jane is better off with them :D

Lorraine, I think you know only too well that I would not rehome my Rabbits

'One' may be over-whelmed, but my Rabbits are not being neglected.

I don't know you Jane, but I have great admiration for you. I think that it's fantastic that you care for so many bunnies who are ill and/or elderly.
I know how hard it is to have to make that dreaded 'decision'.

I hope you're not being too hard on yourself.

Take care.

You're doing a great job of caring for them all. I know how you feel as my buns are my babies. Looking after Darcy who is chronically ill and on daily meds is hard as I don't want him in any discomfort and love him so much. Thats just one bunny who is ill and that is hard enough but still rewarding. I can't imagine the 30 ill buns you have and how hard that must be.

Big (((((((hugs))))))))) to you. Sending tonnes of vibes and nosey rubs to your bunnies xxxxx

Oh Jane, I wish I were close enough to help. If for no other reason than to bring round a pot of tea and a few packages of biscuits. ((((((((Hugs))))))))
That's quite a few intensive care patients on your ward. I'm upping my vibes for all of them, but especially Brian, Hal and Murphy. The poor dears, I wish something more could be done for them. But they do have the best care in your hands and with the help of your wonderful vets.
Liam may be critically ill, but in that picture his eye is still shining with a good deal of spark. :) He looks very comfortable in your arms, Jane.

I hope you don't mind, but, some time ago when you posted about Morse having further troubles and you feeling very sad about him, I jotted down this little poem. It could apply to your relationship with any of your bunnies because I can see what each one means to you, so don't let the title limit the sentiments. I hope it can add to your pile of good things. Bless. xx

For Jane and Morse
My golden bunny, when I look at you I see,
The light of your sweet soul reaching out to me.
Though others may not be able to tell,
Or may insist that "you don't look well",
If your ears can no longer hear,
The love I whisper to you, dear,
Or if your eyes have come to dim,
I can yet find life that shines within.
I'd not want to come home to,
A house with anybun but you.
We both may tend to creak and groan,
But neither of us is ever alone.
That nose still works,
So wiggly cute,
You can tell when I'm here with herb and root.
As long as I can bring you joy,
I'll do my best, my fuzzy boy,
And hold you close within my heart,
Until such time that we may part.
When time will come that we must say,
'Goodbye'...how I will rue that day!
There is no force in earth or sky,
That can separate our hearts' reply.
Beyond the veil you'll always be,
My beloved, my all,
The best part of me.

Liam is still not eating ANYTHING for himself :cry: He has been completely anorexic for 4 days :cry:

He is on maximum dose of two analgesics aswell as his other medication

I really fear we are not going to win this battle :cry:

I hand reared Liam from the age of 3 weeks alongside his siblings Niamh, Patrick, Enya and Jo

http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b27/Jan-bun/Rabbits2/MeandafewBuns361.jpg


Liam and Niamh went to live with Katie who is local to me and used to be a regular RU member. Then last September Katie had to ask me to have them back due to a very serious personal situation for her.

I so want to be able to make Liam better, but I dont think it is going to happen :cry:

Two and two has just clicked in my head. I didn't know the names of the five wee ones you raised. What a horrible time Liam is having, I am so sad that he has so much to deal with at once and that even with all the help and meds he is still not eating. Please give him and all the sick bunnies noserubs from me. Hugs are on their way for too.

I know you will always do the right thing for you buns whatever that may be and however hard the personal cost to you. Don't doubt yourself. Remember Jack is with you always and his love for you and your love for your bunnies will guide you through when things seem impossible.

Take care xx
