Yesterday I had to finish going to get the rest of my gliders from my soon to be ex's house. Shy hasn't been feeling well for awhile. Besides being blind, she had developed mega-colon. We had been making sure she got the extra fluids she needed and made sure that she ate before the others, plus we had been giving her Nutri-Cal to make sure she put on extra weight.

Well last night my escape artist did it again, we woke up to them on top of the closet door. How they made it from our very back room to our bedroom is a mystery in itself. But when I went to put them back in their cage and tie it off I noticed one of the girls was missing and that it happened to be Shy. I kept looking in t5heir cage and noticed something didn't look right with the food plate. When I looked closer, I realized it was Shy and she was laying in the HPW.

I've only ever lost one glider before and I thought then my heart was broken. But Shy was my first, and I'll admit my favorite. She never crabbed, never bit (or if she did it was always a nibble,) and she had the sweetest disposition. I'll never be able to replace her and I miss her more than I can say. I hope wherever she may be she's happy, healthy and gliding free. May the lady watch over her until I can see her again. Goodbye sweet one and know that I loved you more than I can ever say. gangel cry

Andi! cry

I am so sorry about Shy. I can't even begin to imagine what it's like... I don't know what I would do when Sugar (or any of my trio) isn't there for me tomorrow...

I am here for you, even if you just need a shoulder to cry on!

I am so sorry Shy had to leave you - There is never any way you can replace an animal that has gone :rbridge: - for that matter, there is never a way to replace an animal that you may have had to rehome - believe me, I know - Shy is now healthy and happy and will be waiting for you when you pass also

How very sad cry

I was just recently learning more about mega-colon in gliders. I had no idea you had one.

Andi, I can't believe I am reading this. I am so sorry sweetie. Please know that our words can't heal your pain and believe me I have been there where you are, it's very hard to let go. Just remember Shy knew how much she was loved by you while in your care and that you made all those days for her very special. She will always be with you in your heart and she is now gliding pain free and playing with all of our babies who have come to greet her at the rainbow bridge. Sending healing hugs your way. hug2 hug2 hug2 hug2 hug2 hug2 hug2 hug2 hug2

Thanks everyone, I really appreciate it. I know I should feel better for her (she's no longer in any pain,) but it is so hard to not miss her. Her cage mates didn't eat much last night or the night before, so tonight I gave them all of their favorites. Hopefully tomorrow their plate will be clean.

I'm still waiting on necropsy results, I didn't think to ask how long it may take, but I have a friend who is a vet and she was asking if I was sure I wanted to know what exactly it was that killed her (she's just worried about me.)

But Crystal I thought about that too. It was funny how both of her cagemates came right to my room as though to tell me something was wrong. I swear we don't give them enough credit sometimes.

So sorry to hear of your loss. :/

May Shy be spoiled rotten over the rainbow bridge, with all the mealies, yoggies, and other yummies that she can imagine. And all the room in the world to glide, with all the other gliders there.

I am sorry for your loss! It is so hard to lose any of our fuzzy ones, but especially after all your loving efforts to keep her comfortable the loss is devastating. It sounds like she was a lucky little glider to have you looking after her until it was her time!

Well I got back the results of the Necropsy. It looks as though she died from her Colon, it had backed up quit a bit. She's now been sent for her histopathology so I'm hoping to find out more. Let you guys know when I do. Thanks so much for all the prayers and thoughts, I do sincerely appreciate it.

Wow, what does that even mean? We are learning so much from these necropsies, thanks Andi for taking the time and money to help others (as well as answer some of your own questions!). That's got to be hard. hug2
