I have only just found this thread and discovered what you have been going through - and now I'm sitting in tears at my computer - wishing so much that I could help in some way - I'm very very sorry for you and Sally both-I am here!!! I am sorry for disappearing but I have just been waiting.
The doctors office will not see us till next week. They only returned my call yesterday!
Sally (my tortoise) is still soaking day and night in the tub....
She is eating better now (yesterday she ate a whole plateful of dark greens!)
And I forced her to walk around as best she could. She looked like she was fine with that..? She was “digging” under her heat lamp and her Uvb light.... but refused to go outside ???
I just don’t see any eggs???
She has 5 very dark and warm places here inside to “do her thing” so I don’t have to worry about that...
She just won’t use them.?
At this point I am trying to do what she wants just to keep her hydrated until I see the vet...
If it’s eggs.... I will do the “midwife” thing..
(by that I mean I will sit and wait for her to lay them...)
And if it’s nothing.....all heck is gonna break loose!
Tort head is going to fly!!!
But I guess I’d be happy to know she is alright.... but I am just sooo tired..
picking her up to move her..(she’s 100lb)
Refilling the water every two hours
Begging her to eat
Cleaning the room she goes in and ruines before she walks back to the tub..
Thank God the tub is in the basement!
I cannot imagine having to do stairs too!!
Again, I am sorry for leaving you in the dark about what’s going on but I will be here to update as soon as I know.. I promise!
I do so hope she will get over it very soon.
Love to you both from Angie xx
