Alright I looked it up, the part where it says neoplasm just means there is abnormal growth of cells, which can be either malignant or benign.

Some of the other stuff is describing the surrounding tissues, there is lymph fluid and white blood cells trying to break down the abnormal growths.

I'm staying positive with you Sherri, whatever this is, Ivey's body is trying to fight it!

We had the option of surgery tomorrow or Monday. And since my vet was going out of town Sunday she felt uncomfortable leaving me alone for that day in case SOMETHING were to come up with Ivey.

We decided to go with Monday because my vet can babysit all week there at the office while I am at work during the day.

We also decided that an e jacket may be the better way to go instead of an e collar. Ivey's mate Kudzu stresses very easily the way it is and he got stressed enough to overgroom while Ivey was at the vet office. So an e jacket would possibly mean that the 2 love birds can stay together while she is recovering.

Posting here so that I can also come back for updates.

I'm reading this thread - and you and Ivey, and her adoring mate - are in my thoughts.

I burst into tears earlier tonight when I took the e jacket off of Ivey. She had another lump (maybe2) appear. This/these are in her pouch. I was besides myself worrying what to do and if I can even handle this anymore. Thank you so much Peggy for letting me get it all out and giving me the strength to continue on. I was at the point of giving up.

So tomorrow morning she will have surgery and probably get samples from one on her chest and one in her pouch. I am a complete mess and have a big day at work tomorrow that I'm not going to be able to concentrate for. If at all possible I'm going to try to be able to be at the vets office as much as I can. Luckily the vet is less than 1/2 a mile away from my work so that helps.

I don't know how much more Ivey can take. I know I'm at my breaking point myself.





In the last picture Ivey bit Kudzu's tail and hung on while he drug her around the bath tub. I think she was mad at him that he didn't try hard enough to get the e jacket off.

Well, I'm glad to see that the e-jacket fits...she's so SMALL compared to Kudzu! shock I'm taking from the pictures that he isn't messing with it, which is WAY POSITIVE. That at least will give them the chance to be together.

Sherri, I hope that answers can be found and treatment can be given to stop this outbreak of cysts. hug2 hug2 I'll be with you both in spirit tomorrow.

Thank you Denise! I do have to dig out a bigger pouch though cause when I put Ivey in it to see how she could manage with the jacket on I noticed that all she was able to do was a head stand! LOL. She couldnt maneuver enough in their pouch with that jacket on to get comfortable. It was at that point that I took her out of it.

And yes she is VERY TINY now compared to Kudzu now. She was always smaller than him but never tiny! And my poor man has overgroomed a nice large patch off his head because of everything they are going through. Which I'm sure will get larger even before this is all over.

...surgery on the main part of the body will kill a glider. not enough is known yet by the vets and there is no blood for transfusions.

Over the years I have had two gliders come through here with tumors and had them under Dr. Fronefields care. we kept them comfortable and pain free and let them have as much time as possible.

I'm very sorry about her...I know what your going through. I loved Zoe with all my heart...but sometimes we have to let go long before we're ready.

Mary, that depends on how invasive the surgery is. If the lumps are just under the skin and not in the chest cavity, then surgery is not as dangerous. Chris's (glidrz5) glider Bax just had surgery on his chest to remove what turned out to be a fat deposit.

It is when the vet has to enter the chest or abdomen cavity that it becomes extremely dangerous.

We are hoping that Ivey's is just under the skin.

I have Sherri's number but I don't want to call her and bother her, hopefully all went well and she's just crooning over the little girl like a spoiled princess.

She is doing fine. She ate some yogies after she woke up and went to cuddling with Kudzu. We didnt put her in an e jacket or e collar yet since she hasnt been messing with them. They took biopsy's of the lumps on her chest and a swab for a C&S on her pouch. I'll come back to fill in the rest after I get done uploading the pics. But she is doing well....me on the other hand just has to much rambling around in my head to put it all down sensibly. I'll be back in a few.

Ok, of course my vet couldn't tell me WHAT is going on yet till the biopsy's come back but I will tell you what she did say.

She said the larger hard spot on her chest basically just popped right out. The smaller hard spot on the other side was pretty easy as well though not as big. There was no bleeding (good), no puss (also good) and when she looked at some fluid and tissue under her dlide she said that though there is alot of cels in there none of them looked like nasty cells. Yes they were abnormal but not by any means what nasty cancer cells normaly look like. She's still not ruling it out completely but did say that she's hoping more for bacterial. She also drained another ml of fluid from the ones on her chest. Which she is hoping theydon't fill back up since it could cause the biopsy wounds to keep opening. Something we will have to watch closely.

Now on to her pouch....

The lump right about the opening she said looked more like an abcess than anything and she tried to get fluid out of it but nothing came out. She swabbed the inside of her pouch for a C&S. The inside of her pouch itself sis not look like an infection and that worries her some. The inside of her pouch has become very tough and inflamed. But there was very little fluid and no debri like the first time I took her in for the pouch infection about a month ago or so. I love her for her descriptions....she said it looked all narly. That can't be good.

Ivey is on an antibiotic 2x a day and a pain med once a day. My vet will babysit the next few days at the office to make sure that everything is going well and neither one are messing with the sites.

Here are some pics that my vet took for me today.

Before







After.....May not to look if your squeemish.

thats very very odd. Maybe its some sort of damage infected tissue that the body attacked and then it started to get rejected?
