Hello, friends! We have lots to share with you today!

First, we are excited to share that I have been steadily getting better! You saw how I feasted on Christmas like my old self. I’ve been eating almost every day since, with my eyes open big and wide! There were a few days when I went on a hunger strike because I got pumpkin for two days in a row and wanted more pumpkin. But other than that, I have been chomping away almost like my normal self. I’m still not eating quite as much as I used to, but we’re getting close! On New Year’s Day, I ate dandelion and collard greens (my least favorite of my usual foods!) that together were bigger than my shell! I have also been trying my hardest to climb out of my awful daily baths, just like my usual self. Even better, I have been pooping! I started out pooping once every 2-4 days, but I have now pooped four five days in a row! Just in time to bring lots of fecal samples to the vet yesterday.

I went back to see Dr. B. yesterday to show her how much better I am. We tried out our hand warmers from friend gckaf, and they worked beautifully. I showed up at the vet’s snug and warm! Dr. B. was happy to hear about how much I have been eating and pooping. Mommy also showed her pictures of me with my eyes wide open because I was already passed out for the day by the time we got to the vet’s. Everyone was excited to see that I have gained almost three whole grams in the last two weeks!

Dr. B. was worried about a couple of things, though. I have been getting puffy again, so Dr. B. showed Mommy how to prop me up to improve my circulation by having my legs hang down and not having my shell cut into my legs. (It felt so nice, especially when Mommy gave me chin rubs! Normally I prefer head/neck rubs, but today I felt like chin rubs.) Dr. B. is worried my puffiness could be from not enough protein, so I may get special carnivore food for extra protein. My puffiness could also mean that at least part of my weight gain is water weight. Dr. B. also agrees with Mommy that my shell seems to be getting soft again. Since I am absolutely refusing to eat anything with calcium powder on it, Dr. B. sent us home with two weeks’ worth of daily calcium injections for me. I hate needles!!

Now for the big news: I have pinworms! Not zillions, but still a lot. I got a dose of pinworm-specific Panacur deworming. (The deworming I got before was a general deworming because I wasn’t pooping enough then for Dr. B. to be able to tell exactly what might be in my gut.) Hopefully those pesky pinworms were the cause of all my troubles, and I can get back to my normal self and start growing like friend Waffles soon! (Well, maybe not quite as fast as Waffles…)

Phew! Well we’re so glad to hear you’re eating and pooping! Humom says that while they might be smelly they love poopies cause its good for us torts and cause our humoms and dads know it came from our bellies. something like that. Basically, everything we make is awesome so humans love it. 

Dr. B sounds real nice and like she knows about awesome shells like us. She probably knows that you can’t just give us yummy treats and take them away without a hunger strike! We’re warriors! 

hoping the deworrminess makes you feel better soon. SO glad you got some hand warmers! Humom said she felt silly she hadn’t shared, we use those back warmers you get at CVS or Duane Reed when I travel (which I just did and it was LAME! but thats another story). They’re nice and warm and last a long time. 

We’ve been thinking about it and maybe you’re the chosen one like in those harry pottedplant books! We’re a team fighting the turtpocalypse and helping you fight the scary demons that come with your birthright of being awesome! 

We are sending you shell strength and we’re gonna jump on board with wafflesworld and mangomusings and chant the Esio Trot chant to you! Also, we’ll chant TEAM KIRBY in between it 😀
