The bunny had her 3-year old checkup yesterday. From the other rooms we could hear kids screaming and crying as they got their vaccinations, one little fellow in particular wouldn't shut up and must have been crying for a good 30 minutes as we waited to be seen by the Doc.
Finally the visit was over, bar the Nurse giving the bunny her Hepatitis shot. She asked me to sit with her on my lap, so I did, but I didn't quite understand exactly how the Nurse wanted us positioned, until Liz took over, holding the bunny's arms and sandwiching her legs between her own. As the bunny and I looked on the Nurse stuck the needle into her thigh and hit the plunger. When I looked at her face the bunny was just staring down at her leg as the Nurse pulled the needle back out. I was waiting for the waterworks but they never came. Seriously. The Nurse stuck on a circular bandaid and the bunny just looked at her leg and said "I got a boo boo," and that was it. No crying, nothing.
This is the same girl who comes running to us, crying, when she bumps her arm or leg and demands a bandaid for some non-existent injury. But she gets stuck in the leg with a huge needle and it doesn't faze her. Amazing.
