Compared to how impaired she was after her stroke, Delilah is doing really well.  But a couple days ago, she was really insistent on coming out.  I always make time for any of my little ones wants to spend time with me.  Delilah has never been a snuggler... she's more of a super friendly adventurer!  But the other day, she crawled down my shirt and curled up on my heart for quite a while.  The only other time she ever did that was after she had her stroke.  So, I think she had another small stroke and she looks so rough now.  She can walk, climb, run, eat, drink, etc.... but one of her little eyes is watery and a little droopy and she just looks so old...  it makes me so sad.  She's only a year old.  

Look at my poor Deedee Tearful





This is how she looked about a month ago... you can see how much healthier she looked.

Aww, poor Delilah. Sometimes I wish there was more we could do for them, but don't feel bad, you are doing all that you can to keep her comfortable, you are a good owner.

Maybe she should see a vet? They might be able to help.

There's nothing a vet can do for a stroke in a mouse. There isn't even much doctors can do for people with strokes unless they catch it right away, determine whether it is hemorhagic stroke or a clot, and then either do emergency surgery or use clot busting medication. A stroke is basically an injury to the brain where it is starved of oxygen... sometimes it recovers and sometimes it doesn't.

But once someone has one stroke, it's very likely that they will have another one unless they figure out what caused it and treat that condition (ex. high blood pressure or atrial fibrilation). She just really young... Sad

Hey, so Scaredy, I know this is a bit of a probing question, so don't feel obligated to answer, but what are the ways to tell if your mouse is having or has had a stroke? I just want to know in case it happens to one of my boys, so I can be prepared.

I'm sure it varies but i heard squeaking, so i went to see what was going on. And she looked terrified and her head was tilted, almost ear to the ground. It was such a sudden onset combined with her extreme fear that ruled out ear infection. she couldn't walk, she just sort of slithered backward in circles. Every time i tried to set her down, she would claw at me for dear life. The only thing that made her feel safe was being in my shirt with my hand holding her down.

The actual symptoms of a stroke vary based on the area of the brain that's being affected. But some symptoms are confusion, sudden vision change, problems walking or balance issues, numbness or weakness on one side, drooping of one side of the face, severe headache (pain), possible paralysis of parts of the body, and difficulty swallowing/eating/speaking.

I'm sure she was confused, had obvious visual disturbance, most likely a headache, weakness on one side, and fear. It must have been so terrifying for her Sad I am so glad that i was there. It must have just happened. I held her for about 3 hours, she wouldn't or couldn't eat/drink/walk. But she slowly started either getting better or getting used to it. When i put her back in the tank, her sisters groomed her, brought her food and held her up to drink water. i eventually put a little wooden toy near the bottle that she could prop herself up with.

It was a rough day.

Delilah is too young, some mice have such rotten luck Sad I don't know if it was a stroke or a heart attack, but my little Peanut was only six months old when she died Sad I heard squeaking and found her lying on her side motionless. I picked her up and her body was completely floppy and limp, she didn't move at all, and one of her eyes looked strange and droopy. She died within about 10 minutes Sad

That's so sweet though that the other mice helped her. They really are the sweetest little creatures aren't they?
