Terrible wing clip

I brought my GCC Opal to the vet today to get her wings clipped because I was afraid of accidentally hurting her if I did it myself.
This is how it turned out

I started to cry when I got home. I feel so bad for her and I'm not sure what to do about it. Any advice?

Re: Terrible wing clip

Unfortunately, there isn't anything you can do right now...You have to wait until the old feathers molt out... Your bird will still probably be able to fly to some degree because the flight feathers aren't clipped.. Don't worry, your bird will be ok...Just give it some time.

It will grow back out within 2-3 moults
