Not again. I'm super stressed.

If you recall, back in January I had this issue:

Positive thoughts. I'm freaking out.

The vet determined his crop was inflamed from overeating, but to watch him. He seemed to get better with good food management.

Then my son's little budgie died, and I paid for a necropsy to make sure there wasn't anything contagious going on. That was in addition to all the blood work and fecal tests and stuff the week before that I had done for an initial check up. Absolutely nothing showed up in the lab work and my vet determined that it was just maladaption and couldn't have been prevented.

Well, today, Leo isn't doing well. He's sleeping all day, his balance his bad, he's all poofed up and his appetite is bad. He has an appointment at 5:40 to see the vet. I'm in tears. I can't handle another loss. Especially not Leo. He's my first birdie love and my favorite. Hopefully whatever this is, it's easily treatable.

I wish I were there with ypu.
But I promise you I'm there FOR you.
I'm so so so sorry.

Re: Not again. I'm super stressed.

The vet is keeping him overnight at least. He got blood work and started fluids. He will call me as soon as he gets any kind of diagnosis.

Re: Not again. I'm super stressed.

Thank you. Dr. J. said that the first of the blood work should be back in about an hour or so, so I should have an idea of what's going on tonight before the day staff leaves. Leo is my first love. He can't get sick. It's not allowed.

Re: Not again. I'm super stressed.

His basic labs are back. He's a very sick little birdie. His white blood cell count is extremely high (I can't recall if he said 1600 or 16,000). He's got some sort of bacterial infection, so they're starting antibiotics and might keep him another day. For now, he's not worried about the other birds, so I can relax a little bit.

Re: Not again. I'm super stressed.

I'm so grateful for antibiotics. I hope there is improvement by morning. My heart is with you.

Good, it sounds like he is in good hands. Try to get some rest, girl.
