Loc: Ok
Thursday night I heard Saleen's joeys crying and got them out and they were very thin. She was in a trio with an older daughter and a first time normal Dad who was real nervous. I took the joeys out and fed them and put them back and when I did, Saleen hissed at me. She had never done that. I got up every two hours to check on the babies and supplemented them a couple of times during the night. At 2 am on Friday morning, Saleen was out with the joeys in her pouch going down to the food dish. Friday morning about 8:30 am I found Saleen hanging by her front paws and her back feet were totally paralysed. I took her into the vet and couldn't get in until 4. All day I had her by herself in a cage and she just looked up at me, never sleeping. Got to the vets and she gave her everything. Just as we were getting ready to go, she started gasping like joeys do when they are going to die. We took her into the operating room and gave her oxygen and shot her in the heart with something, because all she had was re-flex breating and no heart beat. She died in my hands. My vet did everything she could including mouth to mouth recessitaion on her. I debated on whether to do a necropsy, because Saleen had shown no signs of illness and I hated to think about my little white baby girl all cut up. I decided because I was a breeder, that it was best for the rest of my animals to find out anything I could. My vet called me yesterday and said it looked like Saleen may have had cancer of the liver. Her liver was totally white and her gall bladder was the size of a cats. The gall bladder was full of liquid. She said normally when they have liver disease, they have crystalized pieces in their gall bladder that has built up over time. Saleen's weight and coloring was all normal when I took her in. The vet also saw some abnormal looking cells. All other parts of her looked normal. She said, whatever hit her, was fast and she did not suffer long. She sent off tissue and I will hear more in a week or two. I am still numb. I can't believe she is gone. It is hard right now with no sleep. The babies are doing well and are eating every two hours. I will bring them to the SGGA for everyone to see. I will need lots of hugs after having lost two gliders in one week. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />

Oh honey - this is just too much for anyone, at least you know she didn't suffer long, and she knew that Mommy loved her very much & tried everything to keep her here. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />

Sheila, I am so sorry to hear this. You have had a horrible week this week with gliders.
When it rains it pours....seems like the month of July is just not such a good month this year....for any of us.

Tons of prayers and good thoughts going your way. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" />

Sheila, I am still in shock. I am so sorry to hear Saleen passed on. At least she didn't suffer. Take care of those little ones, and try to get some sleep.

Sheila I am so sorry to hear about your little girl. You made a great choice to have the vet look closer. Now you can rest (when not feeding the babies) easier knowing what happened. A GREAT BIG HUG hope it helps till you get to the sgga. I have one waiting in pearson for you.

Sheila, I've been at a loss of words... I read your post yesterday, but didn't even know where to start expressing my sorrow. The pain of loosing a beloved pet is second only to loosing a family member. I know Saleen was very special to you. She was your beautiful little white baby... I'm heart broken to hear of her passing, but greatful that she has left you with 2 beautiful babies in her place. I know no glider will ever replace her, but remember to be thank for the time you had with her and the beautiful bundles of joy she has left in your care <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/heartpump.gif" alt="" />

I got back the results yesterday on the necropsy of Saleen.
The poor baby had Carcinoma of the liver or Bile Duct Carcinoma which is liver cancer.
She was probably in pain. She gave her whole life to me. I am sorry she had to end hers so sadly and painfully.

Actually, Sheila, I've been told by a friend whose cousin died from liver cancer, that there is very little pain, at all. I don't know if it is different with gliders, but I doubt it. She probably never knew. And she was loved so much by you, and that is what she felt.

Oh dear Sheila! I had no idea...I get upset very easily and so I don't often make it to this part of the forum. Sending lots of <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/heartpump.gif" alt="" /> in your direction.
