Two nights ago Jolene's health started to fail. I could tell she was going to die. I tried everything I knew of to save her, but she kept getting weaker and weaker. At 6:25 yesterday morning she woke me up (she was sleeping with me)and I heard this crying from the pouch which I had under the covers with me. Jolene was crying out in pain. I got her out and saw her gasp for air a few times and die. It was not a peaceful thing to see. I had been getting up every two hours with feeding the joeys and every time I would look at her she would have the suffering look in her eyes. I took her body in for a necropsy that morning. The vet said that she had a mass on her liver and her liver was totally disintegrated and he said there would have been no way to save her. I believe that she has been suffering for quite some time. She only weighed 56 grams when when she died which was about 15 grams down from her normal weight. I am glad she is not suffering any more.

Jolene was a special type of glider. I believe she was a different type of glider than the ones we see. I have only seen one other glider like her which is owned by Anita. Unfortunately, neither Anita or myself have any history on our gliders. Jolene had a cut off snout and a rounded forhead. She had a cute little turned up nose. I purchased her when she was 2.5 years old (I was told). I believe she was older than that - her hair was graying. While I had her I sent her down to the Pet Glider so that she could breed her with Shakespeare. She resided with Priscilla for 9 months and came home with her last baby she had named Taz. Here is a link to her page showing everyone how beautiful she was. I loved this petite little girl and her personality was so funny and different and she really enjoyed her life. I will miss her and will always remember how fortunate I was to have had her in my life. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/heartpump.gif" alt="" />

Oh Sheila, I'm so sorry to hear that Jolene has passed. It's good to know that's she is no longer suffering. Did the vet have any idea what may have caused the mass on her liver? (((HUGS)))

Oh, Sheila, I'm so sorry to hear about Jolene. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crying.gif" alt="" /> I looked at your pictures, and she was a very pretty girl. At least it sounds like she got to see a loving face before she went over the Rainbow Bridge. I'm also sorry that you had to see her suffer.

I'm sure if she could have talked, she'd say that she was very fortunate to have had you in her life, too.

Sending lots of hugs. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" />

Sheila,

I still can't believe she is gone. I know she had a wonderful life with you. I can still remember the first time I saw her. What a beautiful girl, she turned out to be. Sending prayers and hugs your way. Only time will heal your pain. Sugar is sending lots of hugs and kisses your way.

PS: I bet JoJo and Jolene have met up with Saleen and they are all just running & playing together.

This was for JoJo...and your little one as well:

From Simple Plan, Untitled track, album version (minor changes)

I open my eyes, I try to see but I'm blinded by the bright lights
I don't remember how, I don't know why
I'm sitting here tonight
And I can't stand the pain
And I can't make it go away
No, I can't stand the pain

How could this happen to me?
We've made our mistakes
Got nowhere to run
The night goes on as you're fading away
You're done with this life
I just want to scream....
How could this happen to me?

sounds like everybody's screaming
I try to make a sound but no one hears me
I'm slipping off the edge, I'm hanging by a thread
I want to start this over again
So I try to hold, onto a time when nothing mattered
And I can't explain what happened
And I can't erase the things that are done...
No I can't...

How could this happen to me?
We've made our mistakes
Got nowhere to run
The night goes on as you're fading away
You're done with this life
I just want to scream....
How could this happen to me?

We've made our mistakes
Got nowhere to run
The night goes on as you're fading away
You're done with this life
I just want to scream....
How could this happen to me?


I do know she'll be waiting for you at the Rainbow Bridge, and wish I could help the pain they leave with us when they have to go. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" />

Sheila I am so sorry. Jolene was precious and now she is no longer suffering. She is over the Rainbow Bridge with Takara, Yuki, and all the other gliders watching over us until the day we can be with them again. I am here if you need anything.

Thank you all. It is not as difficult as I thought it would be. I miss her. I am worried about Taz her son. He has not eaten. Last night I got desperate and gave him nonos. My vet says it is better for them to eat something. I will try putting an older female with him today. I wanted him to be eating first, but might just give it one more night. It is scary when you wait for them to eat.

I'm sorry about Jolene's passing. Her name reminds me of the Dolly Parton song by the same name, where the singer is talking to the woman (Jolene) her man is falling for, saying she can't compete with her beauty.

You mentioned that you had a sick glider when you returned from SGGA. Was it Jolene? I know Jolene is with Jeepers and Jojo and all the other special gliders who've been lost in the past month.

Sheila,
My deepest sympathy to you and yours.
Jolene was truly beautiful. What a photo shoot she took!
A true model glider.

Oh Sheila...
:'-( I'm so sorry.. Jolene was a beautiful, sweet girl. She will be missed by all, and she knows she is loved. Be comforted that she is with friends, and waits for the day everyone can be together again.

Hugs, hugs, and more hugs.. Hope little Taz strengthens and becomes a beautiful boy like his mama. Suggies hugs and kisses from all of my furrkids.
