cry Cora, my heart is sinking to read this...I was SO SINCERELY HOPING that things would improve. But it doesn't sound like this happening at all.

I ache to read that a crossroads is quickly coming...and I know that your heart will be the best guide that anyone could have.

I'm with you in spirit.... hug2

I'm so sorry Cora that things aren't better. I hope things improve because I don't want you to have to make that extremely hard decision.
I have just started reading Spencer's story a few weeks ago when I saw ur video and I was hoping things were improving for this little guy.

I will keep him in my thoughts and prayers.

I'm so sorry to hear about your little guy, Cora. You're awesome for taking such good care of him - that sounds like so much work and heart ache. I don't know his full medical story, so I'm sorry I can't offer any ideas. It sounds like you have a great team of vets looking after him and you're doing all you can to make him comfortable and happy. I'll be praying for Spencer and your family - I hope he makes a turn around. I hope he pulls through!

i dont know if you thought of this but if all the meds
spencer has been on is not helping him, maybe you could
try a natural animal doctor and try natural remedies. i know they work for people and dogs, hopefully our gliders.
just a thought for the pain you and spencer are going
thru.
my prayers go out to spencer and you.

take care,
nancy in detroit

last night he did pretty good til bout 630 then he started fussing. Even with the antibiotic plus pain and oragel max strength it did not stop, just more intense fussing. Still trying to get him comfy. He weighs 121 grams, 5 down from last week. He eats mealies and waxies and picks at his food. He does still eat the grape we share at lunch everyday. A wise woman called me yesterday and told me that I will know when its time by looking in his eyes, he will tell me...................................I just hope I am listening....................................So Spenny and I are going to have fun, I will not forcefeed him and when he tells me its time, I hope you all will understand. Keeping the magnets in bonding and sleeping pouch for now....it cant hurt right?

Cora and Spencer, I know that you both are having a really bad time and my prayers are with you both.
We know that saying special prayers are heard at times and I believe that sometimes we don't think so and my belief is that God is a really busy person with all of the mayhem going on the his world.
But if we all send lots of prayers with Spencer and Cora in them then maybe they will get through and God will have a moment to take care of little Spencer and make him well and give him many happy years with Cora.
So here is my prayer for you both.

Our Savior, we ask that you find the time and love to help Cora and Spencer through this hard time. We know that they are both wonderful beings and are only waiting for your love and compassion to help them through this hard time with the sickness of Spencer.
Give Cora the answers that she needs to help Spencer through this and point her in the right direction to make this happen.
And please Lord. Fill Spencer's heart with the calmness and serenity that you have the power to give, so that he will awake tonight and be still and calm and to not hurt himself any longer. He is a cherished soul and Cora needs her little man to be healthy and happy and a carefree little Glider like you made him the day he was born.
Watch over them and keep them both calm in spirit and let them know in your way that if there is a decision to make as to sending little Spencer on to you that it will be because you need to add one more Glider to your glider part of heaven.
Thank you God and I pray that their heart is not heavy any longer.
Amen

Ooooh - it breaks my heart just reading this. I'll keep praying for you both.

Can you get the little guy to eat mushy, snacky foods just to get his appetite up at all? I'm sure you've probably done this already, but baby food, yogurt, honey type of mixes might be good. Berries and raw juice might help too. :< Maybe sprinkle some extra bee's pollen on his wormies so he gets the vitamins.

Thank Goodness I am not alone, I know I have an entire glider community to lean on.................that is awesome!! And I love each and every one of you! I picked up some sm tz antibiotics today from the vet........suggested by another vet to my vet................it cant hurt, he very well may have an infection up in there ...........could be caused from mouth bacteria or Lord only knows. Dr. Reese Is consulting with other vets and Dr. Antinoff told him of the vet website, he has to wait a few days for the criminal history and license check but when he can get in there she gave him the names of some cloaca info to read. I have backed off of Spencers meds a little and concentrating more on numbing agents for his tush!!! He did pretty good til bout 4 30 to 630 this morning, I just applied different numbing agents with q-tips he finally got comfortable and ate a little. I will hopefully get some pics soon, been very busy, I like to play too and have lots of gliders to play/care for (not complaining)!

Glad to hear that you may have some answers in the works. Could they swab and culture his cloaca? Just a thought.

Prayers and good thoughts to you and Spencer.

My apologies for not updating before now. The antibiotics are either helping or his new collar....LOL. Prob the antibiotics! He has had 4 good nights in a row. He is still a little swollen (cloaca) and he dribbles on himself, I think thats to ward off predators(like there are any). otherwise he voids and defecates fine. He will however still get a little overzealous and mutilate when collar off which could be 5 min or 12 hours. Last night he barked for about 30 minutes!! I dont know know what that was about. He rarely barks!! Actually quite a few of my gliders barked last night! His appetite is not much better, he weighs 121 grams though! He wanted to show off his new collar that his other mother mary h bought him from sugeebaby. This is his 5th day of wearing it. The plastic is softer but thick enough. sugeebaby modifies it with moleskin around the neck. Knowing Spencer I modified it by putting moleskin around the outside of it. If I see that it is rubbing his neck I will be put another layer of moleskin around the neck. It is actually a rat ecollar. It weighs nine grams.....................check it out:

Thank You mary h and sugeebaby for making life more comfortable for Spencer. He has not had a bad night since He got it! Also wanted to add The magnets are still in his pouch as well!
