ex machina

poor pushkin!

with pushkin, it only takes a moment. while visiting family in grand rapids, michigan a side door got left open and pushkin slipped out. we all ran out and saw a car stopped at the nearby intersection with people standing around the vehicle. they saw him get hit by a car ( or did they hit him? it wasn't clear ), but at least he was in good enough condition to get up and keep running.

we caught up to him a few blocks away and found scrapes on his face, a chunk of flesh removed from his hind leg and while he seemed sore, we didn't see any obvious signs of broken bones.

the nice lady at the 24 hour emergency vet asked a few questions about his gum color ( pink ), eye dilation ( normal and responsive ) and breathing ( panting, but not overly so ) and said the best thing to do would be to sit tight and observe him closely for any signs of behavior changes.

so we'll sit. and watch.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
