    Yafe - Albino Carpet - FINAL - Progression Thread

    All,

    If you've been following along, Yafe has had a tough go of it since we got him.

    Shipping delays: https://ball-pythons.net/forums/show...-Carpet-Python

    Full Blown Respiratory Infection within 2 days of being with us: https://ball-pythons.net/forums/show...ression-Thread

    He's on the road to recovery, and I am optimistically starting this thread, for when I close the above one and Yafe is 100% healthy, eating, and ready to have a happy, healthy, life, with me and SunshineWalker.

    Well, Yafe has eaten, and gotten a clean bill of health from the vet.

    Time to start adding to this thread! Finally!

    I'll post some pictures soon, but below is a link to a video of him home from the vet and "cleared for duty!"

    Wait, he got a clean bill of health? Are you saying that the RI is done and gone?

    That would be wonderful!

    If that is explained in the video I apologize as I'm at work and can't watch it now.

    Thanks RickyNY, that means a lot to all of us.

    Yafe did not give up; he did not quit. That RI was a real pain in the you know what. It got better, then worse, then better, then much worse, etc. It kept knocking him down, but he kept fighting back. I really respected that.

    He didn't eat for 8 weeks and lost 5 grams the whole time - from 120G to 115G. That gave me hope.

    Lots of other little things gave me hope.

    His movements and grip on me got calmer and easier, even if he still sounded bad. He seemed more alert and active. He was feeling better and fighting harder even he didn't sound it. He began spending more time with his head down when he rested and less time with it elevated against the tank corners/walls. When I disinfected the tank (regularly) I was finding fewer and fewer mucus streaks on the tank walls, etc. As discouraging as it was at times, and as down as I got, and as ready as others' were to quit on him, I wasn't. I kept asking him to give me a sign, anything, to keep fighting with him. He always did.

    He's my buddy. We are going to be buddies for a long time. This is going to be a distant memory and when he's big and strong we can laugh about it together.

    You did a amazing job Dakski, that's for sure. And you have now become our resident RI specialist!
    Not wishing any snake a RI, but if it happens, you will be the guy to get in touch with for tips and support.
