My little girl's gone. I can't even begin to describe how shocking and flooring it is. She got sick on friday night, and all day saturday she seemed to be really groggy and just, not feeling well. She wasn't eating so i had to dropper feed her some water and BML, hoping she'd get some strength back and get better. I just can't believe it happened so quickly, at the party on friday she was so happy and playful! i miss her soo much, it hurts to think about her, every time i do i start to cry. She was my little girl, and i loved her so much, and even though i only had her 8 months or so, it feels like much longer, and even that much more tragic since she was so young. Everything reminds me of her, she passed on just last night, and i have so many things all around me that make me miss her so much. She died in my hands, and i can't seem to stop crying. It just seems so silly! i mean, how can she just die so quickly?! i didn't even have a chance to get her to the vet!! i called the emergency vets this weekend, and none of them had heard of gliders! It was so FRUSTRATING!!! i just wanted her to get better. On sunday, in the evening, she looked like she was getting a little better, and then she just got much much worse and faded away. I know quigley misses her, i just hope they didn't have enough time to really bond well, so maybe it won't be as hard on him. I just feel so guilty, there had to be something i should have done that i didn't, i mean, i rescued her! she's supposed to be better with me, not dead! Should i even have taken her to begin with? maybe she would have been better off where she was, at least she'd be alive! She was counting on me and i let her down. I know God can take much better care of her than i can, and she's happier now than she's ever been, but i still miss her so much, more than i ever thought possible. Just seeing my name on this board makes me cry. I was her mommy, and i just feel like i didn't live up to the title. I'm sorry i've gone on and on, but i just need to get it out i guess, and i thought everyone here who might know her or have read about her would want to know. She was the best little glider, she went from being afraid of everything and everyone to one of the friendliest, sweetest, funniest, cutest little babies in the whole world, she was such a trooper. It's really hard for me to talk about it, and even write about it, so this is going to be my last really long farewell to her, and from this point on, i'm really going to just remember her now and then and shed a few more tears, and try and focus on all the wonderful memories i have of her. It's just so exhausting being so sad all the time, i can't stand it, i miss her so much. I won't be here for just a little while, a day or so, so if i don't reply please don't think i'm ignoring anyone, i promise i'll get back to you when i come back. Until then, please say a prayer for my little girl that she's happy and safe now, and thankyou all for all the help and support you gave me throughout her short little lifetime, i know she was happier for it. Thanks again, and goodbye my sweet little Aussie.

AussiesMom,

My heart goes out to you. This is the sad reason it is so difficult to take in a Rescue. Often...they have or will have medical issues due to things from their past.

So, take comfort in knowing Aussie knew she was loved by someone very special during her brief time with you.

I have been mostly off the board for a week due to the SGGA. So, I'm behind with reading up on the threads in Health and Breeding and Babies Forums. However, my suggestion is to have the remaining glider vet checked to be sure he is going to be ok. Do not know if Aussie was contagious....so perhaps it would be best if you have him vet checked for wellness to be on the safe side. He may look just fine...but bacterial and protozian infections have a way of hiding for several weeks befor surfacing their ugly head.

Sending prayers of comfort. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frostyangel.gif" alt="" />

I really don't know what to say. It wasn't your fault. This is such a shock to me. Aussie was indeed such a sweet baby girl and I'm so sorry, I don't know what else to say.

How terribly heartbroken I am for you. Aussie was well loved and I know she felt it every moment she was with you. Whenever you do think of Aussie, give Quiqley an extra hug and kiss. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/heartpump.gif" alt="" />

I'm so sorry!! My boys and I were admiring her picture just last week in your photos! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crying.gif" alt="" /> You'll be sore at heart, but know you're in our prayers, too. And sometimes things just happen-as a rescue maybe God knew she might have to go through some terrible thing later and after what she'd been thru before you, spared her. We may never know the reasons, but I believe there is one for everything. You were a wonderful Mommy to her, made her feel safe, coddled, loved, and protected, and no one could have done more. I know she appreciated and returned that affection, and knew when it was her time that the most important person in the world to her was there with her and she was safe and loved. We should all be so lucky.My heart goes out to you.

I'm very sorry to hear about Aussie. It's just amazing how a couple of ounces and six inches of animal can take such a huge space in your life. I'm so sorry for your loss.

Thanks to everyone for their replies, i appreciate it. The people who were at the party on friday know what happened, and i was thinking originally that she licked some of the bactine i put on her, and that made her sick, but she didn't pass away until sunday night, and my dad pointed out that if that was poisening her, because they're so small and have such a high metabolic rate she would have died much sooner. I don't know, he thinks it might have been a kind of infection or something and that i would have needed some antibiotics or something to kill it. I don't know, and i really don't care anymore why it happened, i just miss her and want her back. Thanks again for all the replies and prayers, I know aussie appreciates it too.

You did right by her. And you are still her mom, she's just "away" from you right now. I honestly believe you will be together again someday.
Take heart in the love you have, though it hurts you now. Please know that I am keeping you in my thoughts.
Lisa
