To everyone, especially Jade, Sassy and Christi, and all those in chat last night, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for all your help. I think I can call myself about half a breeder now.
Anyway, it was a very long night, which is why I'm posting so late this morning. I was up til about 5:00 am and then had to get some sleep. But she is still alive! I just checked her and she still has a little gasping, but nothing like last night; there also seems to be some crud around her nose and mouth, I'm assuming the fluids coming up. At any rate, I'm going to start supplementing her in a while; I tried last night, but she just seemed to choke on it, so I quit that.
I kept her by my side most of the night and flipped her several times. She probably hates me now, but I just kept her moving. I did have to revive her a couple of times about 1:30 and then again about 1:50, both times she went totally limp and stopped breathing. I just rubbed her back vigorously and kept her moving and she came back ok. Finally around 3:30 her brething eased and she was resting comforatable. I put her back in with LJ around 4:00 and LJ nuzzled her pretty good for several minutes, then around 4:30 I checked and she was over in the opposite corner, then came back around 4:45 or so.
The White & Tan gil is thriving well. She's all over the cage and having a ball! In fact, the cage has a feeding bin in it, the type with the bin on the outside and the bowl inside. Well, the little stinker has figured out that she can get into the bowl and then try to come out the bin, so I'll have to either switch cages, get a different food bowl
or block off the bin for now.
Well, I'll post more later, I need a shower and some coffee!
