Re: Positive thoughts. I'm freaking out.

I just caught this thread.. my 2 pois were concerned for Leo . I'm relieved to hear that his distended crop was not a result of a medical problem! I know what that feels like being sick with worry, and it's awful. Good luck with managing his diet.

Re: Positive thoughts. I'm freaking out.

My best wishes as well. I have a sick lil birdie too Im trying to keep alive. That li ball of feathers brought so much love into my home its hard to think of losing him.
Meds twice a day.. lots of love and doing what I can for his nutrition is all I can do. I know how attached one can be to a critter. Xing fingers your vet is as good as mine!! Best of luck..........and keep me posted

Re: Positive thoughts. I'm freaking out.

I haven't been on in a few days and I just read through this. I'm so glad he's OK, and I'm glad that you can relax a bit. I've been through both situations, the sick bird and quitting smoking, though never at the same time, but I can imagine how awful that must have been.

I thank you for showing us this issue and bringing it to our attention, I've never heard of this happening, only crop infections, stasis, and burns with holes and other common problems, it never occurred to be that a crop could distend and become inflamed, so it's good for all of us to be aware of this issue arising. The Senegals are a special little group of birds, I've had my baby only since November and I just love him so much, he's such a different personality than my other guys!

Positive energy your way and Leo's way for a quick recovery, and good luck with quitting smoking, I've been through it twice and it was the hardest thing I've ever had to do, willpower wise anyway. It's so worth it though, between the money you'll save and all of the improvements in your health that you'll see pretty immediately, like food tasting better, breathing better, running and generally exercising more easily, just generally feeling better all the way around. Just keep telling yourself how much better off you'll be and you can do it, no problem! You got this! Doing it the way you're doing it is the way I did it the second time, I slowly reduced the amount I smoked until I got used to not getting up after eating to walk outside, that was the hardest. But the very first time I tried cold turkey and it lasted 2 days, I couldn't work or concentrate on anything so that ended quickly. The first time I actually quit long-term I used nicorette gum and actually got addicted to the gum, which happens a lot. I know multiple people addicted to the gum and one to the patch, so it's better to not use a replacement anyway, just stick to what you're doing!
