Talked to Mary.

Brodie is a bit stronger and instead of just sitting in the wheel, this morning he had the wheel moving. He isn't lethargic but still doesn't have full energy. He is eating better and Mary is trying to get some weight on him. The protein stuff she got from the vet seems to be doing great with him.

He still needs round the clock care and round the clock hand feeding but he is now eating some on his own at night.

The hopes are that as he gains strength and gets the nutrition into him that his body needs that he will regain his eye sight (his eyes are healthy, it is his brain that is telling him he is blind) and be able to go back to being an (almost) normal glider again. Time is the only thing that will tell us though.

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

I could have missed the pain
But I'd of had to miss the dance


The soul would have no rainbow if the eyes had no tears.

...I got a call about Brodie's thread on here...and came to read it. Thank you Elena and all the rest of you for caring about this...
...all I can say is "I'm not letting go" I don't care what has to be done 24/7 it's a fight to the end and he's a fighter too. This is team work on this round.
He has severe allergies...but we have that under control with the atarax.
You've read all the things about him...and this morning at 5:30 when he climbed in the wheel and made it move I knew we were making it...and he ate better in the cage last night than he ever has.
Your prayers are working...please keep them going.

Mary

I was going to post earlier, but Teresa came in and stole my thunder. LOL I had spoken to Mary about how Brodie was doing right before going to bed and was going to post about how well he had eaten on his own and how he was making the wheel move.....
I do have other news tho. I talked with Mary later and she tried 2 gliders in with Brodie today. There was no snicking or fussing, but no one seemed particularly interested in establising a friendship either so Mary pulled them back out. There are a few others she is planning on trying so Brodie can have a friend while he is staying at his Auntie Mary's house.
Little Baby Bear is a scrapper and he won't give up. Mary is finding that out first hand and can attest to. I have every faith in her and Dr Fronefeld to get my baby well again so he can come back home to Momma.

I talked with Mary and Brodie came out and ate again last night laugh She told me he is coming out every 4 hours to ask her to feed him. This is a BIG step for him....WANTING to eat and putting himself in a position where he knows he will get food. She also told me he is drinking water and was in his wheel again. She didn't see it moving last night, but that doesn't mean he wasn't making it go, just that he wasn't caught.

Brodie is continuing to come out and eat at night. Not lots, but he is eating something. He is also making his wheel move more and more. As of yet, Mary has not been able to find a friend for him to stay with while he is there, but she has not given up hope.

That would be wonderful if Brodie had a cuddle buddy to give him some companionship....if anyone can find the right friend for Brodie, it's Mary, no doubt in my mind....

On Saturday morning Brodie suffered another seizure. Through some miracle, the additional electrical energy in his brain broke down the barrier in his mind and for a few brief hours gave him back his sight. He got to see all that had been denied him for so very long. In his cage, he wanted to climb and explore the upper reaches of the cage that had been denied to him and he wanted to look and see everything there was to see…...he could finally see the home where he had been living since coming to Texas, and the loving face of Mary who had cared for him so gently through his illness. He was happy as Mary took him from his cage and quietly chirped his thanks as she fed him the Ensure he had come to enjoy so much. Then as she held him ever so gently and talked and kissed him, another voice called out to him. It was a voice he had heard before beckoning him to come. The voice was stronger and clearer than it had ever been before. It promised that there would never be any more pain or darkness and that never again would he be separated from those who loved him. For those who had gone before, Bailey, Nicky, Carina, Bonnie and dear sweet Ryan, were waiting for him just beyond the Rainbow. Sadly Brodie heeded that voice and crossed the Rainbow Bridge to join his loved ones. Happy and healthy now, he plays in the forest beyond the Rainbow Bridge with his family awaiting the day when his colony will be complete and together they can all journey into the light beyond. Farewell my sweet Baby Bear, Momma will miss you so very much.






Brodie was taken in for a necropsy this morning. I'll post the results after I get them. Afterwards he will be making a final journey home.

My heart goes out to you, Chris. I am so sorry Brodie is no longer with us. I'm so glad that he was in Mary's hands when he heeded that special voice.


Glide free, sweet Brodie :rbridge: over the rainbow bridge. You will never be forgotten, you will always be missed and loved, by many.

I'm so glad he had that joyful last few hours. And I'm so saddened to read of his passing.

Hugs to you, dear Chris. You were Brodie's steward and devoted slave. His life was enriched by being in your care.

I'm sorry for this loss.

Oh Chris, I am so sorry, how heartbreaking frown I had a moment of silence for Brodie and said a little prayer...

I hope memories of him can give both you and Mary comfort right now....

cry cry cry Dang I hate it when I can't stop crying over things I read on here. I will say prayers for Brody and his human mommies too. This poor little boy put up such a fight to stay alive. Hugs to Mary for all the love and care she gave him and for holding him and sharing his last few minutes of life with him.
