Sorry it's been a while, quick update on Yollie's Surgery....

**** this happened in August 2013***
Yollie here,   I am finally home after "day surgery" completed on Thursday....

What an ordeal! 

Wednesday at my pre-op assessment my Anesthetist made a clear pain-relief chart to use post-op.

 I am allergic to almost all pain meds (morphine, pethedine, NSAIDS, Asprin, Codiene, digesics etc) as well as many antibiotics, it’s important my plan is thorough in the event of surgery. 

I’m nervous visiting the doctor or planning for surgery because of my sensitivity to so many medications. Going through my list, the anesthesiest said he could only perscribe IV panadol. He then wrote a script for "Capadex", to bring with me to hospital, this is one of the only strong pain meds I can use.

The plan was to get it that night and bring it in to hosp the following day, to use post-op. Stewart had a world of trouble filling it, the pharmacies advised Stewart it is no longer avail (with court cases pending) on it's use. Apparently it's supposed to be identical to "digesic" so this is the medication it’s substituted with. I however am allergic to Digesic (swelling of airways last year). 

Luckily though my local chemist had a pack of 10 capsules left and sold Stewart these. It would do, to get me though my post-op pain.

During admission to he following morning, the nurses locked up my medicine and then when they were needed (per my chart) post-op, I was informed that legally they could not administer Capadex, as it is no longer for sale, regardless of what my Anastesthiest had ordered!

So as per my hospital notes I was given 1 x iv panadol at 9am (post op), at 11am when I started really feeling the pain and asked for more pain relief, I was told "Sorry, that is all you have written up for pain meds, because Capadex is not allowed to be dispensed by staff!" They paged the Doctor, but it felt like forever and I was quickly getting to the point agony!

I begged, pleaded, cried, screamed. I told them to give me panadol, anything, but they said they could not because it may interfere with what the Doctor may give me when they eventually respond to their page?!?!

It felt like I was in hell!! I wanted to call Stewart and they would not bring me the phone!! ...I sobbed like a baby but it made no difference. For the course of the day - a dr was paged every 20 min, I was in agony. One of my nurses sat by me rubbing my back and trying to stop me crying, I just begged her to unlock my personal effects so I could use my mobile to call my GP!! I as refused and told my personal items were to remain secure until my discharge (normal procedure for day surgery).  I was in and out on conciousness and it wasnt until 5pm a Doctor finally arrived.

I was given "fentenol" I was told they took a calculated risk but the alternative was putting me back under anastesia while they sorted out what to do!!!

Needless to say I wasn’t discharged and I spent the night in the Gyni-ward. Once there I was put on a drip for fluids. At 8pm I noticed a sharp pain at my left elbow - at the site of my IV line, I called for the nurse who said I must have strained it ?? or fallen asleep on it ??- It’s progressively getting worse, red, hot and very swollen.... The doctor ordered a compression bandage, cream and antibiotics, hopefully this will heal it quickly. I also had an ultrasound to make sure it was not a clot - thank goodness it isn't.

So all in all It was a living nightmare but right now, as I type this,  I’m feeling better.   . I would not have believed yesterday, that today I would be feeling as well as I am.

Thanks again for all your kind and positive thoughts. take care ~ Yollie

The famous SnowπŸ‡Rabbit-Shifter&Charlene Mouse🐁

Greetings FairyCastleFarmers! 

It’s me Sweetie! 

Today I’d like to share more of my Yollie’s art with you. 

Here are the three interpretations she created of Snow and Charlene.  I know, a few of you have met them before!  

Yes, that’s right, they’re famous characters in the Chronicles of a WereRabbit series written by talented author, MY Zeman.  

Here’s a link to find out more :  
Amazon: Chronicles of a Wererabbit



Can you guess which of the three designs was used?  

Here’s a hint, if you’ve read the third book, you’ll see it in the acknowledgments. 

She had so much fun bringing these characters to life and is thrilled to be working on a new project!  Here’s a sneak peek....

How do we see? An Angel in my Arms.

Greetings fabulous friends! 

Your bunderful FairyCastleFarm Spokes Bunny here, that’s right, it’s me Sweetie *courtesy*. 

I have been enjoying our South Australian school holidays tremendously....I mean- what’s not to get excited about? 

I’ve been relishing my days spent sneaking a few extra treats and snuggling with my furless sister and welcoming the arrival of daylight savings. 

Winding the clocks forward also means I need to be vigilant and sometimes I work extra hard ensuring my hoomins keep up with their earlier bunny feeding schedule! 

Most of all however, this is also the beginning of the long awaited tingle I feel in my nostrils that quickly spreads throughout my entire body, signaling springtime is finally here!  
We all agree, spring holidays are the best! 
Extra daylight hours also means My Yollie has more time to work on her art, here is her latest artistic creation.
What do you think?  
An Angel In My Arms - Art By Yollie
Here’s how Angel looks too you normally
Personally, I think it’s Buntastic....  but she’s my hoomin so I pretty much love anything she does, so long as my dinner is served on time *giggles*.  

On a serious note, Yollie says that we bunnies don’t see the same way as hoomins do, the art she created today is inspired by how she believes the world looks to us with our impaired detail and muted colour range.   

Don’t be sad though, Yollie thinks there is a special quality to how we see and she says our gift is in our hearing and exceptional range of vision. Did you know, we can see almost all the way around our ourselves (360 degrees)?   The only area we can’t see, which is called the blind spot, is the space directly between our eyes, you can get an idea of what this blind spot feels like to us by making two fists and pressing them one in front of the other in the space between your eyebrows.  You’ll just have to imagine what seeing all the way around the back of your head, above you and the sides, all at the same time is like. This for me it’s normal, but for you I’d imagine it would seem strange, just like the way your world would look to me. 

Thanks so much for hopping by, remember, don’t be shy to say πŸ‘‹ hi!
