really bad.... Had to take Koala in today cuase seh looks as though she weighs over 100grams but is only weighing 80.. the vet did a Unrine test .. and our worse fears have come to pass .. She IS and HAS gone Septic <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="images/icons/frown.gif" /> there is a a Very surprising amount of Blood in her Urine and She is VERY swollen... I want to thank everyone here for the support for the last month .. and Would apreciate it if you WOULD cont to pray for her and harder then before at this point she is gonna need it to help her have the courage to fight this the vet is gonna cont to try the Clavamox for a few more days IF there is NO improvement in her by the end of the week she is gonna move to something a lil more harsh as far as Antibiotics goes that showed on the sensitiy test to work . We are doign all we can at this point to help her fight and give her the aids to help her in this fight .. I have been crying since I woke up and saw how badly she looked . on top of the swelling she is dehydrated and that was confermed by the vet and test . So far her Kydneys and liver have not shut totally down and praying they dont before we get her better.. her skin is whitish and her coat is turning a pale yellow .. Oh Lord please get my baby better .. <img border="0" alt="cry" title="" src="graemlins/crying.gif" />

I am so sorry to hear this. It's a devastating ordeal the two of you are going through. <img border="0" alt="worried" title="" src="graemlins/worried2.gif" /> My heart goes out to you and your little one. I'm sure it helps that she knows you are there with her and she is not alone.

Be positive because Koala needs all our energies and prayers to get well.

Marsha - I wish I could do something to help you other than pray. I watch anxiously for each update and today is very sad BUT, Koala is a special little girl and with your attention and love, she may be able to fight this off. I hope you know how much I am praying for you both. <img border="0" alt="heart" title="" src="graemlins/heartpump.gif" />

Just read this, Marsha, after I posted to the other thread. I'm praying for Koala, and I know how distraught you must be. She's a tough little glider and has gone through a lot -- please know we're all rooting for her and praying for you both!

Marsha,
i just saw this post, and want to let you know i hope and pray that poor Koala will not suffer much longer and be well soon.

I'm so sorry that you both are going through this, as i know it must be hard.

Wouldn't it be adviseable to use a stronger antibiotic beforehand since this is a case of septicism ????

That was tlaked about today , the one she is on is a safe one the other harsher ones are very dnagerous to the sytem if giving while they are dehydrated .. and since it is hard to keep her hydrated now then she is wanting to try this one first then move to a harsher/stronger one in a few days IF no improvement is seen . with the Clavamox


I would like to say again THANK YOU !! for all the prayers and thoughts it is very apreciated .. and needed

Sweet Pea got away from me and sent Koala another email, so you can read it to her!

Marsha,

I'm so sorry that there has not been any improvement yet. With prayers coming from around the country, hopefully it is only a matter of time before you start seeing their effects.She is such a little trooper to have fought it this long. More prayers are on the way.

thank you ... with the blood in her urine we are afraid the kydneys may already bestarting to shut down on top of the illness hgaveing gone septic on her. SHe is weighing 79 to 80 grams this am . I just gave her the anti-dihrea med and her clavamox and torb for pain . in the am is the only time seh gets the torb by mouth for it being mixed with liqi-calories then I have another bottle use for either oral or injections .. when it is injected it seems to work faster but drive her batty for a few for it stings .
I am to call her today to giver her an update on her and then the vet will determine weather to wait another day to see if she shows any signs of this med working or to move to the more ivasive meds tomorrow.

The vet and I had a lenghty talk yesterday regarding putting her down so she does not have to suffer by her asking me if and when ever would I consideer doing this and thisis how I feel about this subject regarding Koala.. I refuse to give up on her and cont to pray that if there is a chance if we have to change meds that they may be the trick even though she is already septic , then we will try . I can not see giving up on her .. and I told the vet that I refuse to give up on her and refuse to consider putting her down . The only way I will consider this option is if one or more of her organs shuts down before she leaves me and the earth . I know this may seem harsha nd mean to some and I am sorry .. BUT to me there is STILL a chance she can get better with the meds Until an organ shuts down if when that ever happens is when I will take things into mine and the vets hands to stop her suffering and let her go peacfully . the last thing I want to do is to let her or see her suffer .. but I can not see me talking control of it and ending her suffering by putting her down IF there is still a glimmer of hope that one of these meds on this list may work . and till they have been tried.

Last night she has begun to get very hostile. She is a ver well bonded glider that never in her lie bit me or anyone till she got sick and last night she all of a sudden Bit down on my arm with a full mouth and kept chewing on me tillo I started bleeding and my arm at the site started to swell.
that is not like my girly at all .

Marsha, I am so sorry for all you are going through, as you know. <img border="0" alt="heart" title="" src="graemlins/heartpump.gif" /> I think the decision about putting her down is one you have obviously thought out and I respect your opinion. I don't think I could put Bugsy down either unless I absolutely knew there was no chance for him. I pray that the torb keeps her out of pain and the antibiotics will heal her. As you said, the biting is atypical of her behavior and I'm sure she didn't mean to hurt you, or your feelings. With God's help and grace this little girl will respond soon to the meds. She is tugging at my heart strings and you are both in my thoughts. <img border="0" alt="heart" title="" src="graemlins/heartpump.gif" />

I just got back from the vet.. We have chamnged to Amikakin till she can get the most powerful med.. the illness via infection may be heading to her brain we feel. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="images/icons/frown.gif" /> she is having trouble to where hse is a little clumsey along with the all of a sudden change in behavior last night and the vet saw all the bruises on my arm from her going after my arm . HEr color is chnaging to a pale yello and her feet color is more on the greyish color and she says her black is not so blakc .. she is going to her phramacist this evening and will ask for the one med that is the most pawerful tonight so we can put her on it tom . She is comming out to my house tomorrow for her vet visit. And looks forward to see all MY other gliders thatr are nothing but healthy . SIGH... despite her being on the clavamox her swelling has cont.

Marsha I am so sorry. I have not been on line for a day and just saw this thread.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

I really thought when they found the reason for her illness things would turn around fast for her.

You know we are here for you and your baby.

Koala, is no better today , she is whimpering louder. and crying louder today . She is having a lil problem walking and is not wanting to be touch for it hurts her to much . I would love to be able to just sit here and have her on me so I can love on her and cuddle up on her and let her cuddle on me but it hurts her to much appearantly. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="images/icons/frown.gif" /> So as much as it pains me to not be able to show my love and concern for her towards her I am gonna let her be and not touch her unless it is injection time or oral meds time . BUT WE REFUSE TO GIVE UP !!! nothing to my knowledge has shut down completly so therefore the vet and I are not giving up!! She has asked the vet on call to call her imediately if I call in . she is seeming to get worse but they are little steps back wards still No strng OUtwardly shakiing or seizing at this time . But her since of balance and contact with her normal reality is not the same . and neither is her color. My vet told me specifics to look for inorder to know when to call ... She said with us trying all we are unless it is a BIG all of a sudden BAck ward step then there is nothing we can do but wait till monday . You can tell she is STILL TRYING to fiught this or the steps that she is falling would be much larger then what they are .. She is still trying to hold in here for me . and her self ..
