    Sorry about all the boring stories about Star – I know it’s technically not of much interest to anyone else but Chris and I.

    Hey’s it’s YOUR journal, you can write about whatever you want 🙂

      i think bunnies and ferrets would have the same impact if they fell sick, cos they’re so lil. I hope yours will always be healthy! 🙂

    Really glad to know that Star is improving. I am sure God hears our heart!

    Just so you may not know, your writing about Star here didn’t bore me at all, not a tiny bit! I am sure all pet-lovers / animal-lovers on your list feel the same too.

    Have a nice week ahead (with Chris coming back and Star getting better!). Don’t forget to keep us updated on Star, too!!

    Even though I am usually on the sidelines but I am very happy to here that Star is getting better! I remember when my niece first got sick I was so worry how I was going to handle it but in she got better. I know when Chris get home seeing the kids healthy makes you happy then it makes him happy.

    BTW: Can’t wait to see your sephora haul your sweetie got for you!

I had an almost similar depressing experience after I sent my cat for spaying. She hated me for a period of time. But that’s all in the past yea.

    I’m so glad for Starr’s recovery.

  • rubytues posted on May 2, 2009 at 11:34 pm

    Yay for Star! I wasn’t too worried, I felt she would recover. But the smaller you are the more being sick and/or dehydrated is a major setback and it takes time. It’s very good that it wasn’t contagious and didn’t affect your other ferret because having two down at once would have been even worse. Hopefully it’s all uphill from here.

    I hadn’t thought about airport hassles for Chris after being in the USA. But, yeah, I can see where paranoia might make them detain and question people returning from there even though there is such low risk any one person got exposed.

    Wishing you sleep and rest and much happy snuggling with all members of the family. 🙂

    • beverly posted on May 3, 2009 at 7:38 am

      yeah i do think smaller animals get hit harder – poor lil critters! i HOPE its not contagious.. so far Misty is still ok :X

    Hello Beverly 🙂

    I’m super glad to read about Star getting better. I have 2 dogs on my own too and Tammy has been really sick before – it a horrible feeling!

    Take care ok? One of my good friends is relocating to Shanghai with her husband in 3 month’s time – I’m going to introduce your blog to her. Believe she’ll read about alot of interesting info that can help her adjust to life there!

      Aww sorry to hear Tammy was sick before, but good that’s she’s all recovered! I’m amazed Star is gonna survive after all, I almost didn’t dare to hope for it..

      Oh great to hear your friend is moving here, it’s loads of fun!

    Glad that Chris is back home, and that you have some support now. The the opportunity for yourself to recuperate too. Not sure what is available there etc, but fortify yourself with something – chicken essence/ginseng tea/chicken soup/fortified wine…

    Take care.

    Yay for Star! I wasn’t too worried, I felt she would recover. But the smaller you are the more being sick and/or dehydrated is a major setback and it takes time. It’s very good that it wasn’t contagious and didn’t affect your other ferret because having two down at once would have been even worse. Hopefully it’s all uphill from here.

    I hadn’t thought about airport hassles for Chris after being in the USA. But, yeah, I can see where paranoia might make them detain and question people returning from there even though there is such low risk any one person got exposed.

    Wishing you sleep and rest and much happy snuggling with all members of the family. 🙂

    I’m so happy to hear that she is doing better. I know what it’s like to have a pet that feels like a baby/child to you, and then to have them be life-threatening sick, AND to be going through it (physically… temporarily) alone.. it’s all just too much, and absolutely heart-breaking. It’s wonderful to hear that she is doing better; I hope she continues to improve and make a complete comeback. I know you would be absolutely devastated….

    And don’t think no one wants to hear about this aside from Chris. ESPECIALLY since she is beginning to improve (we need updates like this!).. I know I am not alone in caring, and wanting to hear about your little furbaby. 🙂

    It is not stupid to be excited when a pet pulls through! I didn’t even know Star’s sick (so much for logging in more often) so it’s great to hear she’s getting better!

    I rescued a dying baby bird and I had to hand-feed her through a syringe all kinds of supplements and medication every 2 hours so I know how tough it is. (She got better and now we keep her.)
    But it sounds like you’re doing a fantastic job!

    Don’t you love that moment when they’re well enough to eat on their own?!

    I’m so happy to hear that she is doing better. I know what it’s like to have a pet that feels like a baby/child to you, and then to have them be life-threatening sick, AND to be going through it (physically… temporarily) alone.. it’s all just too much, and absolutely heart-breaking. It’s wonderful to hear that she is doing better; I hope she continues to improve and make a complete comeback. I know you would be absolutely devastated….

    And don’t think no one wants to hear about this aside from Chris. ESPECIALLY since she is beginning to improve (we need updates like this!).. I know I am not alone in caring, and wanting to hear about your little furbaby. 🙂

    It is not stupid to be excited when a pet pulls through! I didn’t even know Star’s sick (so much for logging in more often) so it’s great to hear she’s getting better!

    I rescued a dying baby bird and I had to hand-feed her through a syringe all kinds of supplements and medication every 2 hours so I know how tough it is. (She got better and now we keep her.)
    But it sounds like you’re doing a fantastic job!

    Don’t you love that moment when they’re well enough to eat on their own?!

      That was so nice of you to nurse the baby bird, it must have been so tough! But yes, the moment they take a turn for the better makes it ALL worth while 🙂

    I’ve been outta town for a few days, but I’m really glad to read this entry (late!) and hear that Star is doing better. I hope that she has been continuing to improve. It’s because of your care and hard work. She’s a lucky little ferret!
