This can't be happening! Peepers and I just got back from the emergency vet. She started vomiting again, just like she did back in April and May, only this time it was more.

The only thing that's keeping me from a complete meltdown is that these symptoms are different from what Jeepers just died of.

-She ate a little last night, but not as much as I would have liked. Okay, grief.

-There was a watery stool in the bottom of the cage this morning. Okay, don't panic. She's stressed without her little friend and got an upset tummy.

-She was on me in the sissy all day. I kept feeding her treats like yogurt, mealies, glideraide, etc. She did refuse one mealie which I don't think she's ever done in her life, but she's grieving right? And it was after eating two mealies she refused the third. Not panicking.

-She was a touch dehydrated today. I don't like it, but lets just encourage her to drink as much as possible.

-She did have two soft but formed and semi-normal stools later in the day, after the watery one. Whew! That made me feel better.

-Vomits about 4 mouthfuls onto my arm. Panic! OMG I can't lose BOTH of them!

I rushed her to the e-vet. I gave a very precise history of both hers and Jeepers previous illnesses (chronicled in Peepers and Jeepers are Sick ) and the fact that Metronidazole worked each time. Also noted to the vet that preliminary results from Jeepers' necropsy indicate liver failure (yes, another glider with a bad liver) so I was a little concerned that the Metro could have been hurting their livers.

I called Jen/Xfilefan (again) from the vet's to discuss this concern (I was still waiting for the vet to come in) and she said Metro is not that hard on the liver, relatively speaking. So that helped a whole lot. Thank you Jen.

So they sub-Q'd her and sent us home with a fresh supply of metronidazole and she's going to get all better, right? Please, please please let her be alright! I loved Jeepers very much, but she was my crabby girl. Peepers was my first and is still my sweet baby. I just don't know what I will do if I lose her too!

Oh Sundra <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" /> I wish that you weren't going through this right now.

Sending prayers <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/heartpump.gif" alt="" /> that Peepers pulls through. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" />

Do you have a supply to continue with the sub-Q, just in case she remains dehydrated?

Oh, poor Peepers! Poor PeeperKeeper! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" />

No?! Sundra, I am keeping everything crossed for you, and will be praying for you. What an awful thing to be going through, especially now, after Jeepers passed away.

Stay strong.

Liver failure is usually the result from Toxins produced by a bacterial/parasitic/fungial illness.

Sending prayers that Peeper may have a speedy recovery.

I think she's not better, but not worse either this morning. She did still vomit after drinking some water a little while ago when I got up, but it wasn't as much (maybe only because there wasn't much to come up). I'm pretty sure she kept the antibiotic down at least an hour last night, so that should be long enough for it to be absorbed. It's only a once a day dose, so hopefully by the time she needs her next dose it will have worked enough that she won't vomit it up.

She will be going with me to work today so I can make sure at least I can keep offering her little sips of Pedialyte to stay hydrated. Yes I do still have 30cc's of subQ's I can give if needed.


Thank you for all your prayers. Keep them coming.

I'm not a prayer but I'm sending you and your family all the positive energy that I have.
I'm sorry that your going through this Sweetie. This just isn't right.


Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming
WOOOO HOOOO, WHAT A RIDE!!!

We'll take anything ya got, Paula. This has been a terrible year for me and my animals. In June we lost a horse that we'd had for 25 years and another one we've had that long went lame a few weeks later and we're still not sure if we'll have to put him down because of it. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />

Sundra, meant to add to my other post --

You may want to skip feeding mealies. After I found Amaya vomiting several times I noticed she did it more after she had eaten mealies. I even thought for a while that maybe something was wrong with the mealies I was feeding. However, I was told that the mealies are one of the harder things in their diet to digest and if she's already feeling poorly, the mealies may trigger her vomiting.

If mealies aren't Peep's trigger, then maybe just keep a mental note of what she is fed before the vomiting starts to see if there is something that she just isn't taking well to right now.

Good luck and let me know if you need anything <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" />

Sundra, know that every good wish I have available is going to you right now. This can not happen. I refuse to hear that Peepers didn't make it. You tell her I told you so. Please keep us updated on Peepers and yourself.
