#554032 - 05/20/08 03:17 PM Broken Heart

Some of you may remember my little Becca that had the facial abcess. She was completly healed of her abscess and I was just at the vets last month. Everything checked out ok. A few days ago I noticed her tummy looked bigger and thought that I better make her another appointment. She was running around playing and being her normal sweet little self. The very next morning I was downstairs sewing some things when I looked over at their cage and noticed Becca out of her pouch. I dropped everything and picked her up. She was breathing very heavy and my heart sank. I frantically grabbed the phone and called my husband to hurry and come home we have an emergency. He was just down the road. I gave her some fluids and she gobbled it down. She perked up for a little while and then started getting lethargic and I knew she was dieing. Larry ran in the house and picked her up in his hands she stretched out and gave him one last hug and kiss and that was it. Larry gave her cpr, but we couldn't bring her back. This all happened within five minutes. FIVE MINUTES! I let Neji say his goodbyes and then we all told her how much we loved her and had a funeral for her. I wanted to bring her in for an autopsy, but Larry didn't want to do that.

I have lots of concerns for her mate and my other gliders. Neji has a vet appointment and I want to take all of my gliders in. I'm at a loss of what could of happened to her. She was the sweetest glider I've ever known. We took her and her mate in when they were a year old. She bonded to us instantly and she was always the first one to come out and see me everynight. I just spent lots of money on new toys for her and they came today and now I'm losing it. cry

Julie, I am so very sorry. They can hide things so well, it can be hard to know anything is amiss until something bad happens. My heart and prayers to all you of you. Godspeed little one......
