They always seem to yawn with one arm extended. #rats 😝
Little baby Finnick before his eye was removed. Looking at pictures of him with both eyes now, I never realized how very uneven it made his head look. Like, I knew it looked odd before, but now that his head is all normal again, he looks so very strange with a bulgy eye. Maybe it’s because that’s just how I was used to him looking day to day.
Is it weird that I think he looks cuter with one eye? :P
His lack of eye is healing very nicely. And he’s not bothering it all that much either. I’m so proud of him.
Neville was so happy to see Finn. :)
I’m so nervous going to sleep tonight because I won’t be able to watch Finnick completely come out of his loopy, drugged stage. I don’t want him to start frantically grooming his face and make the incision start bleeding in the middle of the night while I am unconscious. I’m also nervous because he has eaten some yogurt drops and a couple pieces of food, but he refuses to drink any water. I mean, I know they gave him fluids at the vet, but it would make me feel better to see him drink a little bit. He looks so sad. I just want to see him being his happy, derpy self again.
He’s been bruxing and I can see his face moving where his eye was removed, and that’s been worrying me. I don’t want that motion to open the incision, and I’m not sure how much pain he’s in. They didn’t give me anything for pain, and didn’t say what to do for him if he was in pain.
Gahhh. I’m just a nervous, anxious wreck of a rat-mama tonight.. And probably will be for the next week or so.
My little boy is home and rambunctious as ever. He is still super dopey and doesn’t have barely any control of his limbs, but he hasn’t stopped moving since I got him home a while ago. The inside of his mouth looks a little swollen, and his lack of eye has started to bleed a little because he’s wiping the scabs off his face. Spending the entire night with him to see how he is after the drugs wear off. Hoping for the best.
It is very weird going to sleep tonight knowing that it’s Finnick’s last night that he’ll have two eyes. I know it’s for the best to have his eye removed, but I’m still really scared for him. I hope he takes it well. And that the surgery goes well. And that my other boys won’t be complete dicks to him after. I’m just really nervous to drop him off tomorrow, and even more nervous to pick him up afterwards. Now people are gonna be even more scared of him when I bring him out places. Poor boy. It’s not his fault. Gahh. I just want work to be done and over with tomorrow so I can have my baby home and recovering. :(
Finnick is all, “OH MY GOD MY FOOT TASTE SO DELICIOUS!!!!”
My poor baby, Finn. :(
Does anyone have any idea why my baby’s eye is bulging so bad?? The vets don’t really know, and they have eliminated glaucoma, and they said it’s not a tumor. He doesn’t show any signs of pain at all, and he is just as lively as he always is.
Any inputs, please message me. :(
