Rant: So I'm going into the hospital in a few weeks for surgery,and then will be moved to a kids rehab center to regain strength etc for at LEAST two weeks. My mom and grandma suggested I bring one of my bettas with me because I would miss them all. I e-mailed the rehab center asking if I could bring 2 bettas in a divided tank. I told my family this at dinner and they all laughed! When my dad asked why, I told him mom had been encouraging me to ask/bring one. She replied "No I didn't.... I said ONE."
He laughed and sarcastically answered "OH, well THAT makes a difference"
They all thought it was hilarious though.

Maybe it is stupid to want to bring a fish or two with me. Maybe I shouldn't have e-mailed the rehab center.
:(

Life with Lupus is still a life worth living.

It's not stupid to want to bring your fish with you. They are very calming and relaxing. You'll need that when you're recovering!

+1. There's nothing wrong with wanting to take one or two of your bettas with you. I think it will help you to get your mind off your pain.

I get what you mean.

Good luck, Kath. They may well say yes- and if they say "thats too many" or something, just say that its not and is just the same amount of space/tank.

Dogs, cats, horses...Theyre all good for healing. Who's to say fish arent?
Im watching mine as we speak attack his plant. Ive been down today, and stuff like that, it brings me back up.

If they dont allow you to bring them, request your parents try to rig up a webcam to see them... I forget what the site is called, maybe livestream, but it streams live from a camera (yours at your house, lets say) so you can watch. Itll make it a little better...And hey, somethings better than nothing :)
