In addition we discovered that Brodie is blind. His eyes work but his brain does not process what he is seeing. This means that he is dependant upon his other senses and could explain why he doesn't want to eat on his own. Because if he can't see or smell his food he doesn't realize it is there unless you place it in his mouth. Chances are this is permenant, for chances of his brain rewiring itself to give him sight again are very remote.

Brodie has also had another blow to him. He is now alone at Mary's because he lost his buddy Ryan today. We are not sure what happened but a necropsy has been performed that will hopefully give us some answers as to why he crossed the bridge so suddenly and without warning. Please do not post here about Ryan, I will start a thread in Rainbow Memorials for him.


I am sorry to read all of this, Chris. frown

Brodie bear, you know we love you, and we continue to pray for you.

I just got off the phone with Mary and she told me that this morning she found Brodie up and sitting in his wheel. She's not sure if he was running/walking in it, but he was IN it! He also has a bunch more energy than he has had. In addition....more good news....When she got him out to feed him this morning, she tried placing his ensure in a little bowl and sat Brodie by it. He licked consistantly for 12 whole minutes! ON HIS OWN! No syringes, no putting it in his mouth....he sat by the dish and lapped and lapped and lapped!

I also have a friend (well Teresa) working to see if she can manage to sew a little life size glider (woobie as she called it) that can go in with Brodie as a cuddle buddy. Keep your fingers crossed that she can make one (or two) for him!

Hmmmmmmmmmmmm I just thought of something......if Brodie reacted when Mary shined the light on him when he was sneeking food (dropping it & pretending he was sleeping) I wonder if he has some light/dark perception? I'll have to have her ask Dr Fronefeld what he thinks.

Those are very good signs Chris. Glider hearing is also way more accute than ours, but, if Brodie can at least see shadows then that would be a good thing for him.

Although his fur is very cracked, his belly is not anywhere near as stained as it was at Elena's when I saw him. (his belly was HORRIBLY stained then).

Over the years, all the time's I've talked to Chris, she has told me about how hyper of a guy he is. Very active, wanting to play. Wanting to explore everything. At the SGGAs when she would bring him, all anyone would ever see of him was his tail as he was diving for her shirt.

Seeing him with his ears down like that and so inactive, he seems very unsure of himself now...it breaks my heart.

Saying more prayers for Brodie.

When I saw those videos, all I could think is that God doesnt want to see him sad either. I ask for wisdom to help this little fellow.

Cora, in that first video, just what were you trying to get Brodie to "do again"?

grabbing up with his arms, very peculiar neurological thing he had going on Sunday. He was just a whole different glider wed,course he had just lost his bud, your Ryan Teresa. But he just had a different look to him.

...Brody has serious health problems. He is blind...and his little brain is not functioning properly...and his little body is suffering very badly from lack of vitamins.

Dr.Fronefield has him on a protien...one that he could live on with no other food. He has him on the calcium and on vit.C. He's on other vitamins also but these are the top three. At this time we have to see if his little body just didn't have them or if his body was not accepting them.

right now he is generating body heat but not as much as he should...this could stem from his problems.

He is eating like a little pig...I'm feeding him 6 times during the day and two time during the night. He has a lot of energy when your there with him...if your not close he goes to the box pouch and sleeps. This could be because of the blindness. I carry him on me all day. We are trying to fix him up with a cage mate. I put a sweet little female in with him yesterday...he was not interested at all. Today I have a precious little male I am going to try.

Brody will always have health problems...he will always need special care. What gave him these problems we have no idea...we are concentrating on getting rid of them as much as possible. He might live a month...he may live a year...he may live five years. But what ever time he has we just want him to feel as good as possibly...be happy...and feel safe.

This little man needs som prayers...

Mary

Brodie is still hanging in there. Mary said that he is enjoying his protein and since he started on it he is eating more than he had been. Still waiting to hear if he is starting to gain some of his weight back or not.

Thank you Cora for the videos and Aimee for posting them. It was great seeing the Brodster and I'm sure Chris feels the same way. Thank you Mary for what you are doing for yet another glider in our community. YOU are an angel! Hugs for Chris I know you miss your boy. (((HUG))) Last but not least thank you Lord for the answers you are beginning to provide. Please Lord be with Mary, Chris, the vet, and Brodie and continue to help him heal and provide more answers.
