Tried drawing realism on my laptop instead of on paper for once...
Vent art doesn't help.

Yesterday was a horrible day.

Okay.

Yesterday I had went out to tend to Adrenaline, and he was laying by the door of his hutch on the third level. He was moving slightly and all, and I was going to give him food, clean his cage, and change his water. I didn't think anything much of it, just figured he was resting out in the sun. He usually does that for a few minutes after eating before hopping around again.

I opened the door to the second floor to his hutch and looked at his food. He hadn't ate any of it. So I was a bit concerned. He was eating it the day before, no problem. So then I opened the third floor's door, and see him laying against it, and I stand there for about half a minute just.. in shock. His eye was swollen open, he couldn't close it or anything, and he was hardly moving at all. It looked like it was about to come out of his eye socket.

And I was standing for a few seconds trying to decide whether or not what I was seeing was real.. I knew it was, but I was processing the fact that my rabbit was just...in terrible condition

So I immediately went inside and my parents helped me get him to get him inside.  We called all the vets in our area, but none were open.

The veterinarian told us that for the night we could use this certain kind of eye drops over the counter that until we could get him to the vet's office, which was SUPPOSED to be early this morning.

So my dad and I go to Walmart, get the medicine, and get some treats for him, and my mom calls my dad. He doesn't say anything since we're in the store, we just get what we need and go.

Then in the car he tells me that mom had called saying my sister, Kristen was freaking out because my rabbit was having some sort of seizure, and now he wasn't moving, and they think he had died.

And sure enough, he did die.
...

I wish he could have had a nice, peaceful death. Not one where his eye was swollen and he couldn't fucking blink and he has a fucking seizure. I'm not going to have anymore rabbits since Adrenaline is gone now. Not for a long time. I wish I could have done something more at the time.
At least his life beforehand was nice.....
If you excuse me I'm going to continue eating on this carton of ice cream.

My sincerest regards for the loss of your beloved pet.

Know that I have not taken formal veterinary courses, however I believe my "diagnoses", more like an educated guess, should be heard to provide some kind of closure if you have not already. From the image that I can assume is a representation of what Adrenaline went through, I can best assume that he was suffering from exophthalmia  caused by either pressure or a tumor. Since your veterinarian prescribed eye drops, it is more likely it is buphthalmia caused by glaucoma. The extra pressure may have put stress on the arteries of the brain leading from the eyes causing it to burst and, thus, causing inadequate tissue perfusion, I.E...a stroke. 

Considering the situation, the eyedrops would have only slowed the degeneration of the eye. Adrenaline would still be blind for life. As for the stroke, I'm sorry, but there's no reliable way to predict when a stroke will occur at "x" moment. Adrenaline was just unfortunate enough to have his stroke before he could get help.

Sorry. I hope that this clears some stuff up and provides some closure. I used to have to pets. I don't anymore. So I know how you feel. Sorry.

It's most likely stress, as my rat Iceland experienced.. she'sdead
anyway, her eyes were a BIT bulgy, and that liquid stuff was leaking from her eyes and nose.(even though rats can pop their eyes out of their sockets, this was different)

It might have been. I wish I would have known long beforehand, so I could have done something about it, but with small pets it's hard to tell since they are "prey" animals.

Yea, it's hard.
If it were my cat, as said, it would have been easier(because he's a predator animal).

It's extremely Heart breaking when Animals Die.

My Dad had a dog ( can't remember his name) When He was little.He told me that he was wrestling with his brother and my Uncle pinned my dad and The Dog attack my uncle; It bit him on the arm. My grandpa had to take the dog out in the woods and shot it in the head.

I'm Sorry for your Carmen. *hugs*

Thats fucking DISGUSTING. what, was your grandfather fucking retarded? The dog was obviously acting to protect your father. ITS WHAT DOGS DO. So, just because a dog gets the wrong message, you take it and shoot it in the head? you bring death to a poor animal that was just trying to protect its owner? DISGUSTING AND HORRIBLE. Fucking animal abuse as well.
Dog doesnt know better and then gets shot in the head.
kid doesn't know better, gets told not to do something and sit in a corner.
What a world we have.

Oh, wow. That is so sad. :( At first I thought this was some sort of abstract drawing — one half bunny, one half hare? But then I read the description. Beautiful picture and I'm sorry for your loss.

Adrenaline.... That is such an apt name for a rabbit. They are full of it. I'm so sorry to hear he passed away. So far my Malcolm and Frances are still with us, but I completely sympathise with you.

They're always jumping around and causing trouble. xD
Thank you. It's sad that he did and all. He's one of those pets that you're gonna remember for a long time.

Our bunnies sound just like him. It is so sad when a bunny leaves us, but as long as he is remembered, he is still there theoretically.

i'm really really sorry for your rabbit has passed on D:

2 Years ago. My dog, Chewas. is my dad's best dog that he ever had. She got hit by a car, Her liver exploded inside.My dad and my Mom Goes to the vet. Wished That the Vet can save her, But the vet said "The cage is full." I had to get back to my house to share her lastest moments with her. The next day, Sunday. My dad were in the room, Me and My mom were taking a bath. And like 5 Minutes later. My dad shouted out "Amp! May! Come in to the room! Quick!" We both ran into the room after done taking a bath. And i saw is, Chewas. Who shocked and wasn't moving. and this is her lastest moment with me. She died in my dad's eyes. She died with a painful death.


Rest in peace Chewas.

?-2011

Your story is actually somewhat similar to when I found out that Stamps, my rabbit that lasted the longest, died. 
It was a winter night, last year. I was going outside to feed my rabbit, Stamps. (We had three rabbits, Cowbunny, Cinnamon, and Stamps. Cowbunny died first, the Cinnamon, then Stamps.) I got her carrots out of my garage refrigerator. When I went outside and went to her cage, she wasn't out in the open parts of her cage., as she'd usually be. There was also a small hidind box inside the cage also., and I thought she was in there, hiding. So, i peered inside.(The bunny cage is big by the way. You can actually go inside!!! XDD) I found out that she was iside, but dead. I was sad, yet proud of her because she lived the longest. I told my mom and her ex-boyfriend took the bunny corpse out of the cage the next day. End of story. (We had a huge history of pets. One time, we had a pet snake named Arnold. One day, he wasn't in his cage. Get this, he escaped from the cage, and we never saw him again.)
