To give you an idea of how well Mac is being cared for. Here is a Picture I got this morning with the ladies son holding Mac in a towel right after his after his first bath with them yesterday. If that ain't love, I don't know what is. He's drying Mac off with a towel. I just let him drip dry. Mac was mesmerized by this young man when they came over for a visit. Mac wouldn't leave him even for me.

Re: My heart is breaking

I hope they have good luck working with Mac! Sometimes, just being in a new environment with someone who has experience working with difficult birds is all that it requires. Of course, we must realize that Mac may never stop plucking and shredding his feathers, either. He may get better about it, but he may never fully stop, either.

I'm so sorry that it came to having to rehome him, but I hope he flourishes in his new home! Just know that you tried everything you could for him! And I hope we still get updates on him, progress and otherwise!

Re: My heart is breaking

I'm so sorry that you're going through such a tough time. It's difficult enough being ill but then having to undergo unpleasant, costly procedures can make things even more exasperating.

I do hope that your health improves. You did your best with Mac. I cannot imagine how difficult it must have been for you to take that next step to try to help him with his feather destruction. You must miss him so very much. The young man holding him seems so attentive.

My prayers are with you.

Re: My heart is breaking

I know how you feel when I had to give up Java, it broke my heart. But sometimes it's for the best on both ends. I hope everything goes well for you!!!!

Re: My heart is breaking

I'm so sorry for the hurt this must be causing you. By the looks of that gorgeous photo Mac is in amazingly capable and loving hands. You have made the hardest decision based on what is best for Mac, not on what you would want! Congratulations on having the strength to go through with this for Mac's sake. I will be praying for your health also.

Re: My heart is breaking

You and he will both be in our prayers. That picture of him with the boy looks like two new forever friends in the making.

Now you take care of your poor battered heart for now, and give your wife a hug from me, too. Remember, a lesson my husband learned as a child was, if you scream and cry the nurse will get upset and won't give you the shot ... and doctors are busy and might be a long time before you actually have to have one!

Re: My heart is breaking

Sending hugs your way Mike. I know that was extremely difficult to do, but you did the best thing for Mac. Be sure to take care of yourself. Sending healing thoughts and prayers your way!
