And disaster strikes!

So, it appears that I am more careless than I thought I would be with small animals ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Cooper has broken his back left leg… he broke his femur, right above the knee, which is probably the worst part of any leg for him to break because it moves so much! I brought him to the vet, got x-rays done and everything, and now he’s on cage rest with tons of pain meds! The crazy part is that I’m giving him pain medications every day from a syringeย THREE TIMES A DAY for like a month! He’s totally chill about it, surprisingly- he let me grab his cheeks and pull them back tonight so that I could get the meds into his mouth. The morphine (which is for severe pain) is the one I’m giving him three times a day, and it’s actually supposed to go UNDER his tongue. Have you ever heard of that? Apparently, the glands in his mouth absorb it and use it quicker than if he swallows it and digests it in his stomach first. It’s all a lot easier than I thought it would be…

We’re going back to the vet in two weeks for a check up, so hopefully things will look better by then! I’ll keep you updated ๐Ÿ™‚

Well hello there…

I’ve always loved writing things down… helps me remember them, helps me think back on how they could’ve been better… helps me with lots of things! I enjoy writing, and I enjoy fun projects- writing ABOUT fun projects is the best of both worlds ๐Ÿ™‚

My name is Amber… I’m a… well, I’m not really anything, I suppose, other than a 21 year old woman making her way in the world. I’m currently living in my first apartment with my boyfriend of over a year, I work full time as a teacher at a daycare center with 2 year olds, I have a dog and a bunny. I’m a Pinterest fanatic, although I don’t always follow through with the money-saving projects I find on there (I try to, though!!) and I really enjoy a good book, a great movie… a good thunderstorm! I enjoy being me (and this is starting to sound like a very cheese-y description of me, so I’ll stop there!).

Marshmallow is myย 2 year old Pomeranian, American Eskimo mix ‘puppy’ ๐Ÿ™‚ He’s a great dog who certainly enjoys being spoiled! I got him when he was a tiny 3 pound puppy at 8 weeks old, and now he’s all grown up at a ‘whopping’ (did I spell that right?) 16 pounds!

Cooper is my rescue bunny! I picked him up from the Humane League about a month ago, and I’ve loved him ever since ๐Ÿ™‚ He’s very spirited and enjoys nipping at me to make sure I know he’s annoyed or that he isn’t getting enough attention! He has a big cage that I built myself that is under renovations at the moment- I’ll put pictures up of the new cage when I finish it ๐Ÿ™‚

Hopefully I’ll get the couple projects I’ve done in the last few months up on here as posts soon- don’t hold it against me if it takes awhile!
