    Goodbye my little girl

    I really wish you didn't have to leave so suddenly. I wish I knew what happened, I wish I could have figured things out sooner. I wish I could make sense of what happened to you. I'm glad I managed to say good bye to you last night, but I wish I knew it was good bye. I'm so sorry. I miss you. I love you.

    To everyone reading, I'm sorry I don't have the strength to share what happened right now in detail. My heart is too heavy. But thank you for all the support and help you have given me. I'm currently waiting for necropsy results.

    Thank you for the kind words everyone. This was really unexpected and it's been a heavy blow to me. I'm still waiting on lab results from her necropsy, and it's being incredibly nerve wracking. They said it could take up to a week (her organs were sent to the lab for further investigation) and it's been exactly 7 days since, so I hope that means they will call me soon.

    I really miss her.

    Already posted on a different thread but going to post here too to keep everyone updated plus more info

    First necropsy results were they noted her heart seemed large compared to the rest of her body, but this could have been the result of post mortem.

    They also found an obstruction in her lower GI and what they suspect was the cause of her death. Seems she ingested some reptibark.

    I got Kallari's lab results back and it was reported her pancreas, liver, a section of intestine, and spleen were all normal.

    I admit I was disappointed her heart was not sent despite it being noted to be "large for her body".

    My biggest upset was this;

    "Submitting the brain may have given us more information regarding Kallari's neurologic status, but we could not do that and preserve her skeleton as you requested."

    I wish they told me this. I did request to take care of her skeleton IF POSSIBLE, because I wanted her body back to have her skeleton preserved. They could have atleast informed me that meant restrictions and skipping out on the brain being submitted all together.

    If I was told this from the beginning, I would have told them it was fine to do so because knowing the truth and what happened to Kallari was a higher priority.

    They just assumed and didn't even ask, just told me after the fact. Even when I got her body back I wasnt told this.

    Very disappointed and upset. Never going to that exotic vet ever again.

    I feel like some of the information I asked the receptionist to send to the doctor were ignored. I told them Kallari had suddenly been experiencing what I thought looked like seizures the night before she died, and considering that detail wasn't even addressed when I got her results back, makes me wonder what what was communicated between the receptionist to the doctor.

    I'm just mad because if I had spoken to the doctor directly instead of filtering through the receptionist it would have gone better. Because the doctor called me after she finished the necropsy. Asked if I wanted her ogans submitted for an extra charge and I said yes. I wanted to talk more in detail but she called when I was at a doctor's appointment. I asked if I could call back in 5 minutes.

    When I did she was never available, and I was stuck talking to the receptionist, who I don't think passed the seizure detail to my doctor, because I feel if she had, the doctor would have told me about the skull needing to be cut open to get Kallari's brain and I would have been given the opportunity to say it was fine.

    I'm incredibly frustrated and angry.

    So there we have it. I will never get full closure. Kallari either died from ingesting reptibark or had neurological issues that didn't surface until it was too late.

    This is not the closure I was hoping for.
