When Suz & I arrived at my house after the SGGA I found my Seamore on the bottom of the cage. He had crossed the rainbow bridge sometime on Monday. We know for sure that he was with us on Sunday as he was out running on my friend Daphne when she came to check the kids. We think he was with us on Monday morning when my Mom checked them, but are not for sure.
Since this is the second glider I've lost out of this cage in the last month we took him in for a necropsy on Tuesday morning to make sure that my Sydney would be safe.
Thank you again Suz for staying with me through all of this, I know you were anxious to get home after the SGGA but gave me the support I needed through it all.
Anyways, (and Suz you will probably need to add the correct terminology here, I seem to have a mental block where some of it is concerned) the vet told me that Seamore's lungs looked good, so it does not appear that he had any pneumonia or broncial infections. His heart also looked fine. However his liver was enlarged and had fatty deposits throughout. His gallbladder was also enlarged and was about the size of a marble. At this time we are not sure if his liver/gallbladder was the cause of his death or if it was the result of something else that cannot be determined. However it does not appear that it was anything contagious.

Seamore, sweetie, Momma still remembers feeding you as a baby and worrying about you then when you wouldn't gain weight. I remember when you first came to my house to visit when Daphne was going out of town and then stayed with your sissy Sydney who was thrilled to have her bubby come to stay with her. You have been a sweetie who would come to me and give me kisses, and a valiant protector of your sissy. Rest in peace sweetheart and I'll see you across the bridge one day.

Chris, I am sorry I wasn't able to do more for you hug2 You know that anytime you need me, I am here for you. I'm so sorry that Seamore didn't make it, but please remember that he had a wonderful life with you and always knew he was well-loved heart

From my notes on our visit to the vet:
Seamore had Hepetatic Lipidosis (fatty deposits throughout the liver). His gall bladder was enlarged which may have been caused by a blocked bile duct due to the fatty deposits in the liver. One possible reason for his death is that the bile duct was blocked causing the bile in the gall bladder to go systemic. Dr. Crist did note that she found a lot of food in Seamore's mouth, but she wasn't sure if that was due to gliders being extractors or if he simply died with a mouthful of food dunno Lungs and sinuses were clear. Heart was healthy. One thing was certain, whatever he died from was not contagious and so we don't need to worry about Sydney.

We also had Sydney examined while we were there and Dr. Crist agreed to start her on a shot-gun treatment of Flagyl just to be on the safe side. Why? Because Sydney started one of her typical pouch infections on Saturday and treatment with Clavamox was begun at that time (administered by Chris' mom due to our absence). Upon arrival at Chris' house, Sydney's pouch swelling was decreased, but her belly was still very wet - thus the shot-gun treatment with Flagyl, just in case there was a Clostridia outbreak in addition to the pouch infection.

Chris, call me if you need me hug2 hug2 hug2

Thank you Suz for posting your notes and for being there for me. Having you there was a great comfort. I guess I need to start taking a notebook with me to the vets office but at the time my brain was just not working enough to even think of it. Sydney is doing as well as can be expected tho I know she misses her bubby.

Hey Chris-Loads of hug2 hug2
Been slammed at work and you know I wanted to get this here for you sooner...
-and I did have to change a couple words for Seamore's song once I looked them up, but only a couple, and it's very close. hug2

From Natasha Bedingfield's 'Pocketful of Sunshine'
I got a pocket,
got a pocket full of sunshine
I got a love and I know that it's all mine
oh. oh,oh

Do what you want,
but you're never gonna break me,
sticks and stones are never gonna shake me
oh. oh,oh

[Chorus]
Take me away (take me away)
A secret place (a secret place)
A sweet escape (a sweet escape)
Take me away (take me away)
Take me away (take me away)
To better days (to better days)
Take me away (take me away)
A higher place (a higher place)

I got a pocket,
got a pocket full of sunshine
I got a love and I know that it's all mine
oh. oh,oh
Do what you want,
but you're never gonna break me,
sticks and stones are never gonna shake me
oh. oh,oh

I got a pocket,
Got a pocket full of sunshine
I got a love and I know that it's all mine
oh. oh,oh

Wish that you could,
but you ain't gonna own me
do anything you can to control me
oh,oh,oh

Take me away (take me away)
A secret place (a secret place)
A sweet escape (a sweet escape)
Take me away (take me away)
Take me away (take me away)
To better days (to better days)
Take me away (take me away)
A higher place (a higher place)


There's a place that I'll go
That nobody knows
Where the rivers flow
And I call it Home
And there's no more lies
And the darkness is light
And nobody cries
There's only butterflies...

[Chorus 2x]

The sun is on my side
To take me for a ride
So smile up to the sky
And know I'll be all right

The sun is on my side
To take me for a ride
Smile up to the sky
And know I'll be all right
