Just checking in.  My goldfish Charley died but now I have Loki.  He is small but will grow up sooner than later.

 

My other fish Summers likes to rest during the day.  She gets excited about food.  I think she stays up late when I am sleeping.

Also please excuse the radio silence on my end, I had my newest (and last!) little guy on Wednesday and he only just got out of the NICU. We are still trying to iron out nursing and such and should be discharged tomorrow, but with my surgical recovery plus trying to juggle a slightly premature newborn, I’m a bit MIA 😅

Busy but we are okay, nothing much going on except a lot of nursing and trying to get sleep at random times. Recovery is really slow, since this is kid #8 and c section #4. Also it’s reeeeally cold and snowy out so that increases the desire to hibernate 😆

Max likes to be up from 2-6 am and doesn’t feel the least guilty about it.

She has a bladder stone, normally they would treat with a diet change but she is already on a special diet for inflammatory bowel disease so they can't change it. So now we are reducing the the medication she is on for the IBD because that could be contributing to the stine, but has been a long expensive road of finding the right balance. Think we are finally there now

 

Gonna be setting the pond up again over the next week. Hopefully everyone in there stays healthy now

Oh no. That reminds me when Mrs. Kitty had kidney failure and then her thyroid was elevated. We couldn't treat the thyroid with out hurting the kidneys... I hate it when things get like that. It so hard to figure out what to do. I know you will do the best hun. How old is kitty?

Yes you need lots and lots of sleep. I bet your body is like no more please. lol I sure hope you get to feeling better soon..... I know what you mean on hibernating. We have been inside for days now. 😵

He is adorable. Oh no a Night owl. That's got to be very hard and crazy. 🤪

So far just the 10 that survived whatever it was that wiped out the other 30+

Will get some newbies after everything is properly set up.

 

Just got home from work and found Papi wedged between the heater and the glass,  i pulled her out and set up a QT for her but when I went to get her from thr bucket she had passes :(

 

My fishkeeping has been very frustrating lately

I'm sorry hun. Fish keeping seems to be harder and harder... Mine are still plugging along.

Is it in the filtration system?

That's insane.. Are the other fish infected or do you think they are alright?

I think they are alright now..ive written up the full story on my blog topic

Ive used almost all my meds trying to sort this out though so I dont know what Ill be doing if I need kana again, and I only have 2 tubes of metro left, neither are easily available in Aus and the site I normally buy from has been out of stock for like a year now. Ree has been helping me out sending me extras but I dont want to leave her without any
