I am so incredibly thankful for Husband. He not only does his best to take care of me, but he puts up with my animals and my animal-related crises…
We spent half the day today trying to track down catheter tubing or a syringe so we could perform a “pouch excavation” on my male seahorse (Fili) because the gasses trapped in his pouch were causing buoyancy issues and he was floating to the top of the tank (if he cannot keep his head below water, he will suffocate).
Husband joined in on the hunt and commiserated when it was fruitless. He checked on Fili at least three or four times in the middle of the night when I couldn’t sleep.
I am happy to say that with the support of Husband and a few bits and pieces of internet research, I was able to excavate the gas bubbles from Fili’s pouch with a bobby pin.
Thank you, Husband, for loving me and my creatures!
