Re: My story..

Jim, your story touched my heart. I am so sorry you have had all this to deal with, but am glad you have let us know what has been happening. I'm so glad to know that Al has eased your mind about Amy, I hope that helps relieve some of your stress. Please take care of yourself, we love you around here!

Re: My story..

Jim I wish you well with you health and with your caring about the continued care of your friends. No one would ever think that hearing about your love of anything is boring. I've only been with my friend Bill a YHA for not even a blip on the radar yet. Having how he has changed my life in that short time I can only imagine the bond you have with your birds. Life sometimes hands us stuff that is hard to explain. I do believe that good things come to good people, and I believe you have family and friends that will help you out. I got on here to meet and learn from people like you. Please keep your spirits up not only for yourself but for your friends, feathered and with skin.

Re: My story..

Jim, what an astounding story of mortality, doctor's dogged determination to preserve life, and your incredible spirit! Good to know you have a contingency plan for Amy and BB, may it stay on the back burner and wither from lack of use!

Sending you my deepest healing thoughts. Now toss those cigarettes!

Re: My story..

Jim I do hope the Dr. can get things straitened out.

As we are all the custodian's of such long lived companions it is necessary to consider what will happen to them when we are no longer around or able to care for them. I guess I am luck in that My Son is just as interested in my Fid family as I am. I know he would be happy to care for them in my absence. If he could just get a job I know I would not have to worry.


I am sorry to hear you have had so much trouble with your heart
Wish I could offer some kine of advice but the only thing I can think of is trying to reduce your stress level.

Back when my migraines were at there worst before medication was able to get things under control I read a couple of books. 1 was on self hypnosis and the other was called something like "the Silva method of mind control" or it might have been DeSilva. I know this sounds like it belongs in the whoo whoo section of the library but the brain is capable of some amazing things.


If you try this don't expect instant results, it takes time and practice and patience.


Hang in there buddy we are all keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.

Re: My story..

Well...This Thursday (the 8th) the movers will be here at 8am to move me and my "stuff"..some to storage,others to my brother David. Amy and Beeb's and their houses will be the last to move. David has even gone as far as ordering proper house covers for both of them. I am somewhat apprehensive about the move,not for me really,but the kids. Amy has been here for nearly thirty years,it's the only "home" he knows I am hoping that with all the socialization she has gotten thru the years it'll help with him settling in better.
I am not too concerned with BB. He is a young boy and he grooves on uncle david,but still...it'll be a new place. I think with time,Amy will get along with David. Amy "tolerates" him now,and maybe because he will see David every day,he'll get to know David better,and I know my brother will try to make friends...sighhhh..

Any tips/ideas on how to make this transition a positive one??
And then there is Missy,the sixteen year old kitty..who has been an indoor kitty all her life. Amy has lived with a couple kittys in her life and has never bothered them,or was bothered by them. This will be new to BB.


Jim

Re: My story..

Jim make sure your brother has my number, just in case, bro.

PS I am back in hospital, with a case of pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu, but should be out today or tomorrow... I ammaking such a big pain in the ass of myself this time round, I expect they will be glad to see me go!.
