I'm just getting caught up on dear Penny....well done Laura. Your prompt actions and excellent 'nursing' care will surely bring Penny back to her usual self in no time.

Re: Penny is sick, I've been holding back making a thread

Its so scary that stuff like this can just happen at any moment!!

And so thankful I have unique access to my avain certified vet. The pharmacy really worked with me to.

I'm hoping tomorrow she won't be sleeping fluffed up all day....and really show me she is feeling better.

I don't know what cooties she got but they must have been nasty. Thankful that azithromyacin kicks gram postive and gram negative cooties....

Today when I picked her up fir new meds she was cold, despite sitting right next to my powerful radiant heat panel....her feet were so cold!!!!! I was afraid she was shutting down...

But eating and be vocal by evening has my hopes up.....
And I love my sweeter heater!!! If the company only knew how much I promote them!!@ but from tge bottom of my heart I tell you I will never be without one!

Re: Penny is sick, I've been holding back making a thread

It's hard for me to believe that I've retired from a career in the medical field! I got sick to my stomach and wept when Bertie injured his foot last year when a door closed on him (wind blew shut). We were in one of the many temporary accommodations after being burnt out by the fire. I read about Penny and I had the same SICK feeling! You are doing much better than me during this scary event Laura!

Re: Penny is sick, I've been holding back making a thread

Penny is still pretty sick.....still improving but very sick. She didn't wake me up with screaming again... she is still fluffed and sleeping, not eating much.

I had her door open while trying to figure out what to make that she would eat. She flew to my shoulder and we had a cuddle. Then I weighed her. She has lost 5 grams..

I went to put her back and she flew to top of fridge, and retreats to the back if I try and catch her. But immediately goes to sleep puffed if I back off........

Since it was almost 10 and she hadn't eaten I made her absolute favorite, fried egg whites. She did eat that some and is back asleep

Her medication is so powerful she only gets every other day. Im hopeful after tomorrow's dose she will really improve.

My blessed vet called me fist thing to check on Penny. I discussed how cold she was and how I thought she might die yesterday morning. My vet agreed , and said after seeing her and hearing me discuss what was going on, she was very afraid that she might not make it....Thats why she chose her new meds for speed of action, and broad coverage. So I've cried this morning.....im still so scared.... She saw the videos this morning and said Penny is still a very sick bird. But she is very pleased with eating, flying, and not wanting to go back to cage. .

While writing this, Penny finally came down from fridge abd flew to my shoulder. Love is important medicine too. She is puffed and scuint eyed, or sleeping on my shoulder. We will have some love time, it has been 2 days , before I put back by heat.

Here is my baby Penny, being checked on by her freind Cloudy.
