You couldn't have done anything more. You did everything possible that could have been done. I am so sorry Monroe lost his battle. He knew so much love in his too short life. I hope his necropsy brings you some answers.

Monroe was born with a congenital heart defect. His
heart was displaced and was not enclosed in a "sac" to
protect it like it was supposed to be.

Monroe's penis was also completely covered over with
tissue and was in the "wall" near the bladder. He was
born with his penis this way. He was born unable to
mate.

His Cloaca was abnormal and apparently when he would
poo, some would not make it out. (his plumbing was not
right) This is/was the cause of the UTI. He may have had a UTI for a very long time or not..but it eventually got bad with all of the tissue growth and got out of control.

Monroe was neutered when I got him. With his coloring, it is unlikely that someone would have wanted him neutered unless they knew something...

He was purchased from a breeder (by the pet shop), I
don't know who yet. I believe the breeder knew either
something was wrong or that inbreeding may cause something and had him neutered before selling him to the pet shop.

The thing is, the pet shop didn't know he was neutered, no one would have known unless they KNOW suggies. I knew immediately.

His "walk" was a big clue, one I picked up on but didn't pay much heed to. He was/is my "spider" glider, my big handsome loving boy that I will miss for the rest of my life.

Monroe contracted a UTI that was inevitable due to the defects he had.

He also had "soaps", white particals in or around (can't remember which) the pancreas. This is an indication of pancreatitis although it is not believed to be a contributing factor. (his pancreas itself looked good and not infected)

Dr. Williams stated that "Monroe was doomed from birth". He simply was not meant to be here long. He most likely had some kind of pain his entire life, gliders hide that pain very well.

I was hurt that Mardi wouldn't go to Monroe, she was terrified. She KNEW...she knew he would pass...it is their instinct. I wish I had had her insight...or maybe not.

I pray he knows how much I love him and always will. He is my sunshine..it's been raining since yesterday now, literally..outside and in my heart. cry

Glide free my boy...you are my sunshine, it's raining
now. We know what lies ahead of sun and rain...a
Rainbow. Please wait for mommy...I love you with all of my heart Monroe. Mardi misses her man too...she sends all of her love. God speed my precious little son... heart heart heart

I hope this is somewhat understandable, I am a rambling mess right now..and running with no certain direction..


Keeper of Handprints on my Heart, You left your Footprints on my soul.
My precious loves that left to quickly, Peanut, Katie
Isabella, Kiwi, Bonnie and Monroe.

Spread your wings and glide free of pain,
Until the day I see you again.

God speed my precious angels. I love you. Mama.

I need to add that we are not having any tissues sent off. There is no need. He had no tumors, no signs of cancer, no liver disease, etc,.

Monroe's UTI was also responding well to the medication. The bacteria and white blood cells were considerably lower. The infection was clearing up... his heart just could not go on any longer. It was a miracle he was here as long as he was.

Even a suggie heart transplant would not have fixed him as it was still not where it should have been...and there is no such thing anyway..but I had to ask. Nothing could have been done, I just wish I'd known.

I am so sorry. It really sounds like this little guy had a lot to deal with, and I know you both fought as hard as you could. He knew he was loved.

Wow, reading through the whole story is so sad. At first everyone [including me] were praying and cheering on monroe and my hope, along with I'm sure a lot more people, was that he was going to make a great recovery. It was so hard to read that he passed. You honestly did everything that you could have done and I KNOW he thanks you for the extra time he had with you because of it.

~*In my prayers*~

Good luck through this hard time.

Thank you for all of the prayers and well wishes.

I am Thankful that Monroe did not suffer long at the end. He went quickly. I will miss him until the day I die. He is my special boy.

I just found this thread. I read all three pages and I'm now in tears.. I wish you the best hun.. I know how hard it is to lose the ones we love. Some called me crazy when my Bessie passed and I called into work the next day. I was up crying with her wrapped in fleece in my hands all night. You did all you could! You should find some peace in that. You know he is in a much better place, free of pain, and has an unlimited amount of space to glide around in. Peace is with Monroe. May peace be with you too..
