Karen, yes, you had that experience and thankfully your glider is still with you. But you need to realize that not every glider that gets sick will have the same thing as your glider nor is the treatment your glider received THE treatment for every ill glider.

Brodie's illness has been going on for quite some time. There is more to the story that you just don't know.

Brodie IS on antibiotics (two different types shotgunned together) and is being fed round the clock and given fluids to rehydrate him.

This is NOT a simple infection that a shot of antibiotics will fix. The underlying cause has yet to be determined.

You are constantly telling people to do with their gliders what worked with YOUR glider and that can be very dangerous. IF the ill glider does NOT have what YOUR glider had, you could easily be giving information and advice that will KILL that glider. YOU really NEED TO STOP!

Judge not until you have walked in their shoes and lived their lives. What you see online is only part of the story.

Lot going on behind the scenes, more than any of us know but I wish we did as teaching to the rest of us. I try to share my experiences as they happen.

Karen your sweet and mean well, I know you do, wording is everything in when typing and meaning/emotions are not known.

just going by what my vet did and said. and her words were in her yrs of dealing with gliders sometimes there is no time for testing and we just have to keep trying meds till we find the one that works. she said you should see improovement within 4 days and if u dont she told me its time to switch. sometimes we just dont know the cause and all the testing shows nothing. so all we can do is find the right med by switching meds till we find the correct one. that is not the case with all illnesses im not saying it is. i do believe in tests and have done them. and still believe in them.

Mary would like for me to say Brodie is in Houston. He is being subqed about every four hours. She hand feeds him every four hours, he then gets very energetic for about 5 minutes then he curls up and crashes. He has an appointment with Dr. Fronefeld tomorrow at 1030. Jen and Chris drove down to Houston and has placed this baby in Marys care so please keep those prayers coming. After vet visit tomorrow someone will update.

Thank everyone for your continued prayers for my Baby Bear. I know that he is in good hands with Mary and that she and Dr Fronefield will do everything they can to get Brodie well enough again so he can come back home. It was an interesting trip getting him down, but neither rain nor hail nor dark of night stopped us from getting him there. He also has Ryan to keep him company and remind him of home while he is away from Momma.

Ryan has only know Brodie for a very short time, but they bonded almost instantly. Ryan has been helping to care for Brodie by grooming him, cuddling with him and talking to him. He watches whenever I would get Brodie out of the pouch and will call to Brodie when Brodie comes back to the pouch and instantly grooms him to get any food that Brodie might have dropped off his fur and then lays on him to keep him nice and warm. If I would have Brodie in my bra, and put Ryan in my shirt also, he would lay so his head was right near his buddies. It has been so sweet to see and ashard as it was to leave two babies behind, I couldn't separate such devotion.

We will hopefully have a better idea of what is going on after Mary takes the boys in to see the Dr this morning. Ill keep everyone updated on what's happening.

Brodie is back from seeing the Dr. He is showing signs of a calcium deficiency, we don't know at this time if it is due to a lack of calcium in his diet or if it is related to an illness. Mary is to try treating it by altering his diet to compensate for the time being and see if that is helping or if additional steps will be needed. It was also discovered that Brodie has gas so he has been put on a medication to help with that. He has also been given a new medication to help with his sinus issues, which are believed to be allergy related.

No conclusive diagnosis on what is causing things can be determined at this time because Brodie needs to "detox" from the medications that he has been on. Mary is going to be monitoring him closely to make sure that he remains stable while coming off the antibiotics & prednisone and Brodie will return to the vets in 9 days for further testing.
