Good bye Vince

Thanks for all the good wishes for DD. She is now encased in a blue cast & staggering around on crutches. We spent HOURS at the hospital today so I managed to get some knitting done which was the only good thing about it.

Vince went to the vets this afternoon & is now no more. DD was absolutely beside herself last night but took it really well today. She was a lovely little hamster & never bit any of us so we're all a bit sad tonight.

Virtual hugs to you & yours. Hope things pick up for you soon. Must be something in the water I reckon as it's got us too..

Sorry to hear about Vince and poor DD as well. Best wishes for a speedy recovery for her. For activities to keep her occupied, I really enjoyed needlepoint and rug hooking at that age - fairly easy to do but requiring a fair amount of concentration too.

So sorry to hear about Vince ;) I know how awful it is and Vince was such a lovely character.

Hope DDs recovery goes really well and you manage to keep her occupied.

Oh I AM sorry to hear about Vince :( until we had our fist little hamster, Harriet, I had no idea you could get so fond of these lovely little animals. They have their own little personalities, just like the rest of us!

Both Deuce & I are really sorry to hear about Vince - has your DD heard about the Rainbow Bridge? It's a little corny, but such a comforting concept, you can't but hope it's true.

Sometimes enforced breaks are good for athletes - before a marathon you're supposed to really wind down. I bet when your DD is back on track, she'll have so much stored drive and energy that first she'll recuperate well and thoroughly since she'll be nice and focussed - then she'll blow everyone out of the water!!! If she's in a cast etc, she can still practice throwing - sort of hone her technique and aim? Best wishes from us for her speedy recovery.
