#17400 - 02/06/04 01:31 PM Flip Passed Away
Anonymous
Unregistered


Well, the worst case scenario has happened. The symptoms, as explained by my father were exactly that. Flip was suffering from Renal failure. Parents took him to vet this morning. They actually drained the Edema, and his surgery site was just perfect, but it wasn't enough. It's just with all the surgeries and problems with peeing, this couldn't have been avoided. Anywho, he gave it a very hard fight and I am proud of him. He is not gone nor shall he be forgotten. I am not crying, I have no need to. I was prepared and so was he. I said goodbye in the morning knowing he was not going to survive. As i previously mentioned, I hope his ordeals help others should this information be needed in the future. While I have lost a great friend, he is only gone in body, not spirit. And I know I will want another glider in the future. Flip would of wanted me to " go on " with Gliders so I shall. Thanks for your support. Flip appreciates it too. Well, that's about it. Hope all is well in your worlds. I am at peace. Flip is at peace in heaven. Everyone be at peace ok?...lol

<img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crying.gif" alt="" /> The BOTH of you gave a good fight and with tons of love and devotion to one another than any others I have seen so far. I am saddened by his loss but you are so right that he is only gone in body. My heart hurts for you, I am sure I can speak for many of us when I say that we felt as if he were ours as well as yours.
May he rest in peace a "whole, painfree" glider now with no limitations, or boundaries and no more e-collars! He must really be enjoying that right about now, bless his little heart. I admire you Fransisco for all that you did and all that you gave to your little guy. And the next glider that comes your way is one lucky little critter!
prayers go out to you. You are one great glider parent! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" />

Fransisco, Flip knew you loved him, you did all you could for him and it was his time. I can't add much to what Peggy already wrote.

I am drying my tears, and picturing Flip hanging from the tallest tree over rainbow bridge, playing, gliding, and chattering to all who meet him there. He is watching over you from that comfortable limb, and waits till you meet again.

May Flip rest in peace. It's probably better this way since he had to deal with so much. I know he's happilly playing in glider heaven, <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frostyangel.gif" alt="" /> watching over you, and waiting for you. Another glider will never replace him, but will take over a different part of your heart. You have a great attitude about this and I'm glad that his death didn't catch you unprepared. You have my sympathy.

It is a sad time to say the least. Many people as if they have lost a dear friend. For me it is further form the truth. Being lost signifies that you don't know where you are. That you have no direction or meaning. Flip is nothing of this sort. He is a beloved friend, and with his girl Nora are waiting for me on the other side. When my time comes, we will be reunited. Until then....it's full steam ahed in life.

[:"blue"] While I am saddened that Flip is no longer with you, I know that he is no longer in pain nor is he suffering. You'll see him again, and he will be so very happy to see you.

I will move this thread to Real Stories now. [/]

Flip will be remembered by all of us here on Glider Central. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/gliderangel.gif" alt="" />

I am looking forward to the day...when you will post again about another little glider who has captured your heart as did Flip. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/heartpump.gif" alt="" />

Till then take care. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" />

I am so sorry <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crying.gif" alt="" /> You are so right. Life does go on, and he is waiting for you to be reunited on that great day, along with Nora. You both fought a good fight, and now his reward is peace, yours is knowing he has it finally. God bless.

I am glad that you seem to be at peace with Flip's passing... I know he would have wanted you not to be so sad and go on... he was such a handsome little man, such a little trooper! I know he knew how much his Human loved him and cared about him! He loved you too!!! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/heartpump.gif" alt="" />
Im so sorry... its always so heartbreaking when we lose those we love. Flip is in a wonderful place now! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/heartpump.gif" alt="" />

Hugs to you <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" />
May your life be blessed with another little sweetie that will steal your heart as Flip did! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/heartpump.gif" alt="" />

So sorry to hear Flip passed over the Rainbow Bridge. However, he's no longer in pain, has reunited with Nora and has many other wonderful glider friends to play with.

Sorry to learn Flip has left for the rainbow bridge. Thank you for giving him every chance to continue his life with you. I hope I can be as good to my babies as you were to yours. You are a great role model. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" /> We will remember you Flip.

I have been away for a wee bit, and I was so hoping for a different post. Francisco, you have been, are, and always will remain my [:"red"]hero[/]. I so admire who you are, all that you have done for little Flip, and the way you are facing this new development. Your strength, courage, and love is an inspiration to me! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/heartpump.gif" alt="" />
