I have so much respect for Brandi and how well she's dealing with this. I was texting with her at 3am last night when she was trying to decide whether the corn was enough to be able to give him the pain meds....she's doing such an amazing job and I know that Simba loves her all the more for it, even though he's not happy with her at times.

I got off the phone with Brandi a little while ago and she's such a strong person, it's inspiring to me. Simba needs all the prayers he can get, I'm just glad his pain is under control. I have little reminders all over my house, little notes reminding me to say a little prayer for Simba when I see them smile Everyone keep the prayers comin, Simba has made it this far, he's just GOT to come out of the other side of this happy and healthy and reunited with his family!

I just feel aweful for not reading this sooner. I am a wreck with worry for Simba and Brandi and remorse for not following this from the beginning.

What you and Simba have had to go through is just horrendous and I am so heartbroken.

I will be praying with everything I have for a solution and a painless and speedy recovery.

Simba and Brandi you have all my thoughts, prayers and hugs.

I am so very sorry!

Count on the prayers and wishes for a fast recovery coming from me and all of mine here....and any time that the e-jackets start to show wear, I'll EXPECT a message of some type that I need to send another care package your way! hug2 Also, if you need more "Nala blankies" you can believe that I have HUNDREDS of them in my stash and will be glad to assist in that regard.

Continued blessings I shower upon everyone under your roof.... mlove

I didnt know that he had to go back in with the clots.

This is a nightmare, Brandi. You are right!

I hope the vet is able to get some BML in him and strengthen him up!

Thinking of you all! Sending healing energy your way!!!!!!

Get some rest Brandi. I hope you are asleep now, and that your little man is as well. mlove

Simba Update:

I just got a call from the vet. He said that Simba did throw more clots last night but since around 10pm he hasn't had any more. He did have a little blood in his urine around that time as well. He said that he is going to keep him through the weekend and if he does well and no more throwing clots that he will allow him to come home with me next week.
He said that he is very concerned about this. He is worried if he continues to throw clots that one will end up causing him to stroke or go to his heart or lungs. He said if that happens there will be nothing more we can do for him. He is really hopeful that he will make it through this. He is doing everything he can to save him.
He was able to get him out of pain and make him more comfortable with pain medicines. Once he was out of pain he said that Simba was walking a little and he got him to eat some melon and pineapple. He is only taking small amounts of water when the vet gives it to him with a syringe. He wont take it any other way. The vet said he will continue to give it to him with the syringe. He said he really doesn't mind it, he actually enjoys doing it. He told me he was stable for now but he is worried because every time he tells me he's stable something else happens. So he is being very cautious with saying that.

He did leave a message for the vet that is caring for Simba's son. Simba's son just recently threw a clot in his foot during surgery and my vet is wondering if this clotting stuff could be because of a genetic blood disorder. Hopefully that vet will get back to him soon. He is also looking into how to test gliders for blood disorders and what to do if they have one. He has never encountered a glider with these issues before and he is trying to find out as much as he can to help my little man. I really respect my vet for admitting he doesn't know everything and being willing to learn what he can, even if he has to contact other vets for help. A good vet is not above asking for help when they are unsure of something!
The clotting problems Simba is having could be from a few different things. My vet is determined to find out what the cause of this is. If it does turn out to be genetic then I will contact as many people as I can that have gliders related to Simba. They will need to notify their vets that this could happen to their gliders so they can be extra cautious. It may never happen but it's better to be prepared for if it does. Hopefully it's not genetic, but if it is I will do my best to alert the Simba line. I may need some help doing it though.

I think the vet is falling in love with my little man. Of course, it's hard to NOT fall in love with him if you meet him in person! He said that Simba has been very curious of the people and animals in his house. He doesn't let him near the animals but he likes to watch them and shows no fear and he tries to get the people to give him attention. Lol The vet has been carrying him around on him constantly. It's a good thing Simba already knows the vet and likes him. If not he would have been so stressed being with him over the weekend!

The vet said that he will try to give me two updates a day on how Simba is doing and if anything happens he will contact me as soon as possible. I miss my little man SO much but I know he is in good hands and getting the best care right now. It's best that he is with my vet at all times while we get him through this. Keep the good thoughts and prayers coming! My vet said that if we can get him through this he really thinks he will start healing up and be ok.

Maybe he can get in touch with some of the consulting vets and see if they've experienced blood disorders in gliders and if so how to test for such disorders.
Continuing to hope and pray for the best!

Everyone here in the Fort Town is continuing to send good thoughts and prayers your way, Brandi! hug2 hug2 Hoping that we continue to hear forward progress, no matter how small the baby steps are in that direction....the fact that Simba is eating something and curious about his surroundings are both good baby steps.

We'll continue to stand by for news as it comes.

Thanks for the updates, we are all so worried about Simba. hug2
I don't know if it is possible for gliders to have human issues, but my husband has a heredic ( can't spell today ) clotting disorder that it took us years to find out the problem. Mayo Clinic couldn't even find it, but the VA did when they were trying to rule out agent orange issues. Anyway, it is called Factor 5 Lieden syndrome. Once my hubby got the diagnosis, we had everyone in his family tested. His sister, and daughter have it and our daughter is a carrier for it. They can throw clots for no reason. Hubby will be on blood thinners for life, but has had NO other clots, and is a mechanic at a mine, so he gets hit and hurt alot.
