The accident happened the evening of the 29th. She had all but blocked the water flow in the gravel vacuum, only a bit trickled through. She was under the pressure caught in a fortunate "bend" for 2 minutes. I placed her in heavily epsoned waterprobably 2 tbsp in 16 ounces. She was lifeless, pine coned out and tremndously swollen.
24 hours later the pine cone effect was smoothed but she was still swollen. by 36 hours, when these were taken (natural light, remember we were without power..or heat/fresh water for her!) she had reduced in swelling by half, but as you can see swollen. she was eating normally by the end of the week, but was not very strong at all. it took a bit over 2 weeks before she was strong enough to go back to the sorority. I withheld food from her for 3 days, due to the accident and worry about not being able to change her water. as you can see, and rightfully so, she defecated ALOT during her initial recovery.
