#18478 - 03/10/04 07:30 AM Good-bye, Lullabye
Anonymous
Unregistered


I sit here this morning at the same place I began my search for a glider to love. Over a year ago I came here and made the connection which brought me Lullabye to love. I weened her, and bonded so tightly. She gave me joy daily and I have NEVER loved a pet as I loved her. She gave me so so so much love in return. I spoiled her. She slept in my pillow during the day and we played and cuddled at night. Even after I got Baloo for her to love she still prefered her human mom, me. She gave me two babies, a boy and a girl, who are now 3 months old and living with my mother. She filled a space in my heart that came close only to the love I have for my children. I tell you all this because this morning I found my baby dead. I have no one to blame but myself. She died in an inch of water and cleaning solution left in the bottom of the kitchen trash can that I was cleaning. Me who had been so careful with toilets, mop buckets and the other pets watering bowls. I am devastated. I am also so worried about Baloo. We don't have the bond that Lullabye and I had. My heart is broken and I don't know how to make the pain stop.

I am so sorry for your loss. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/upset.gif" alt="" /> This is a good reminder to never leave our little ones loose unsupervised, even with the best, most careful intentions accidents do happen. Just give Baloo as much attention and love as you can, carry him with you and let him ease your pain as you ease his, he will feel this loss also....Lullabye will be at the Rainbow Bridge waiting for you both to join her someday.. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/gliderangel.gif" alt="" />

Again, I am so sorry.....

I know there's nothing I can say to take the pain away. So all I can say is I am so sorry for your loss and time heals all. Spend as much time with the glider you still have and it will help speed the healing process for both of you. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" />

I am so sorry for your loss. Gliders find a way into our hearts so quickly. They are so fragile and always seem to want to get into dangerous situations. Their curiosity often gets the better of them. Don't blame yourself, but be extra careful with your remaining glider. You may not be as bonded to him, but give it time. He is grieving too. If you two try to bond now, I'm sure that you will have a stronger relationship in the end. Remember, he needs you right now. I am sure little Lullabye is happily playing across the rainbow bridge just waiting for you. Again, I'm so sorry. May time heal the pain. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" />

With Sympathy,
Polgara

Thank you, everyone. I can't stop crying, I can't bring myself to bury her yet and I can't bring myself to hold Baloo. My daughter has taken him into her room and is going to do extra bonding. I'm glad my mother has the babies. Lullabye's little boy (Yumato) is very much like his mommy. It will help to visit him and know her sweetness was passed on as his legacy.

Baloo and I will get back together.

Take Crae and concentrate on the good times!!! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/heartpump.gif" alt="" />

I still haven't buried her. I went out and bought a pretty box with scalloped edges, painted it white, lined it with white fleece, and stenciled a wreath of roses in the shape of a heart. Tomorrow I will go and bury her on the property my husband and I are building our new house on. She in the box now waiting for her final resting place. Baloo is getting lots of love and attention from Kayla (my 12 yr. old) and today I let him sleep on my back while I laid down for a little while. I guess I will get through this. My mother even offered to give the "babies" which she calls her babies back to me. Of course I said, "no" because she is so in love with them already. I will get to baby sit them when she goes away for 3 days in a couple weeks. That will be difficult but nice.

<img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frostyangel.gif" alt="" /> To my Lulla-baby. Mommy still loves you so much.

Thank you, everyone. You have no idea how much your concern and kind words have helped me through today. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/heartpump.gif" alt="" />

I'm so sorry to hear this. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" /> It was so clear that you loved your babies very much...I'm so sorry. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" /> Good wishes for you and for Baloo to heal, and your daughter, I know she also has great love of animals.

Her final resting place sounds ideal as well as all the love you put in for her box. May another glider be ever so lucky to find you and be loved by you soon.

Oh gosh....:(
Im so sorry. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" />
Her tiny burial box and final resting place sound lovely... a beautiful little resting bed fit for a princess. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/heartpump.gif" alt="" />

Awwww, and that was so sweet and good hearted of your Mom to offer up her babies to try to help ease your pain. What a sweetheart! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" />

(When I lost my precious Tony, I felt like my heart literally shut down for awhile and I felt 'weird', something missing. (I still do) When he passed, before burying him, I took him to Mya his mate so that she could acknowledge and know that he was gone.... so that she could say goodbye, and I didnt want her to think I just took him away from her. When I did it, I knew... Mya understood he was gone, I could tell by her behavior. I swear, gently tucking him in to his final resting bed, was one of the hardest things Ive ever had to do. Now that its been a few months, it still hurts like mad (I cry as I type this even still), but I can finally remember good things and my heart pitter patters and I can smile. I feel very priveledged to have been little Tonys <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/littleglider.gif" alt="" /> family.)

Im so very sorry... may your heart heal, and you find joy in your memories of her. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/heartpump.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" />

Oh Katrina - I'm so sorry for the loss of Lullabye <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/heartpump.gif" alt="" /> I believe the Rainbow Bridge is a great place and she is surely a happy one there. She'll be with you and Baloo, gliding through your hearts with love. I hope your pain is quickly gone. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/gliderangel.gif" alt="" />

I have an update to this story with more sadness and a little happiness.

The day I went to my parents house to bury Lullabye near a statue of St. Francis they have in their garden my mother's little girl jumped from my father and ran straight up a pine tree. She never came down, just kept climbing higher and higher. We all kept our eyes on her until the sun went down. This is horrible. My mother was devastated. She is still not talking to me because I was the one who wanted the babies to come out.

The next morning when I went to bring my daughter to school I opened the front door and on my doorstep was the little boy joey in his cage with all his supplies. There was a note saying that it was to painful to keep him and he needed to be with another glider. Of course I took him in. His dad, Baloo, recognized him right away. The little boy fought with him for the first couple hours but Baloo was persistent. He would pin the joey down and lick his belly and his head. I kept a very close eye on them until finally the baby put his little arms around his dad and climbed on his back. Baloo snuggled him up and the two of them went to sleep.

Oriangiboom, Boomer for short, is so very like his mother in his mannerisms. I am taking extra special care of my boys. They are not allowed to be without supervision at all during playtime.

I feel guilty and sad for all the tragedy but am so thrilled to have the baby back with his sugar daddy.

Have you placed a cage by the tree with her familiar pouches and food in it? She may be drawn to it and come back to spend her night in her pouch.

Good luck, and I am sorry for your loss of Lullabye

Yes, we did this the first day. We even left her little brother in the cage and put her favorite, mangoes, all around the tree. No luck and then my mother gave up and brought the little boy back to me. At this point it is a moot issue to my mother. I don't think she tried hard enough and I was upset by her lack of tenacity. However, the boys love being together and I am doing quite a few things differently to ensure their longevity.

Try hanging a few of her favorite pouches as high as you can, maybe she will return to sleep. Keep us posted and Good Luck!
