Flan update, 4:25am

Flan sleeping on a scarfFlan has trouble breathing
It's 4:25am here now. Flan has been sleeping most of the time. On a couple of ocasions she has woken up and left the scarf where she has been sleeping. She's not paralyzed after all. Both times she stopped for air after walking just a few steps on my bed. She seems to have some trouble breathing. In both occasions I took her in my hands and she just lay there breathing hard. After she recovered I put her back on the scarf. I put some of her nest's tissue paper on it so she will find its smell familiar.
Flan eats egg
Just a while ago she woke up again. I offered her some egg and she gladly took it. She ate a lot, then had the breathing problems again. When I took her in my hands this time she wasn't cold. I put her again on her new bed and covered her. She's sleeping again.

I should sleep an hour or two, because I have to take her to see Dr. Ozawa in the morning and I'll have to leave home at 8:00 if I want to be there as soon as he opens.

You can do it Flan. You are in my thoughts.

Javi - I am so sorry. This past year has been very hard for you and the babies. I will pray for Flan. Being as small as she is makes any surgery difficult. Makes the recovery slow as well. All of your blogging friends are sending positive thoughts.

Will you leave an update on how it went at the vet with poor little Flan?

Hamster Luver on Friday, April 07, 2006:

Flan, you hang in there!!!

My hamster Valentine was bleeding. The doctor realized it was from her uterus. We also had the operation done on Valentine but they did remove her uterus. They also noticed that she had cysts on her liver that were really bad. The doctors were amazed that she was doing so well with a bad liver. The operation went well. She passed away about a month after the operation on Christmas Day. I think it was the liver that got her in the end. But, she did live an extra month after the operation and I was glad that she could have an extra month. It's good that you're keeping Flan warm...that's what the doctor's told me to do for Valentine. All the best Flan and Javi! I stay tuned for updates.

Javi, Ihave just got a new hamster this morning and when we took it out of the box and put it into the cage it started making really loud squealing noises. Like screaming. Is this normal for babies.
