I took Melody in yesterday to work with me to sedate her and clean up the horrible acne on her chin. I had to sedate her because she can be difficult to work with and the acne went pretty deep and I wanted to make sure we got a clean start again. Everything went fine with the sedation and procedure and she was only under for 30 minutes. After waking her up and pulling her trach tube she was sitting up and swallowing. I looked back a minute later in her cage and she was completely greyish/blue and almost comatose. I was scared out of my mind, I could not think of what I was supposed to do to help her, so I screamed for a doctor to come help me. We got her back to breathing and she has recovered and is ok now, but what a scare! Has anyone else ever heard of this happening?? The doctor and I are still not sure what happened, but I have never been soo scared of losing her yet, and she has been through alot! Only having one kidney and herpes, on top of chronic pancreatitis-she has been through alot, but nothing this scary! Any ideas as well as to what may have happened??
