Hello Miss Riley
Are you up to havin' a visitor for a bit this afternoon? I hear you're doin' battle against a couple of invading armies so I thought I'd get my beak over here and see if I couldn't offer some support, maybe kick a little virus butt or somethin'. Maybe you could your PA... that's physician's assistant in this case, not public address system. I can be that too if ya need but I was thinkin' under the current under-the-weather symptoms you've got, a little doctorin' might be more useful. Now I'm not sayin' I'm a avian vet or anything although I think I can find your pulse and count how many times it happens in a minute.

*R reaches for Riley's wing and holds it firm but gently. His eyes watch the ceiling as he nods his head in small rhythmic motions in accompaniment to the counting he's doing in his heart.* "Seems good and strong, your heartbeat. It's got a bit of a flutter in there every now and then. That maybe could be an environmental factor, ya know, like white coat hypertension or something. How about your temperature. Can I put my wingtip on the top of your head for a second or two? *R lays his wingtip on Riley's head after she gives her nodded consent and feels for extra warmth one might expect to find on a bird with a war waging on the inside. Thinking maybe his wing might be extra warm because of the heat or the patient or whatever, he feels his own head then switches wings and feels Riley's again.*

"You're a little warm but then I'm feelin' it myself. Could be the summer heatwave we're enduring at the moment. How about you let me hear you take in a big breath." RB leans closer, turning his ear towards Riley's beak. He notes that her breathing seems shallow and a little bit faster than what would be thought normal. He finds himself hoping her lungs aren't compromised by this condition she's dealing with. And then he finds himself wrapping his wings around Miss Riley and holding her gently in a tender hug. Over her shoulder he softly says, "Riley, you've just got to be okay. You're something special to me, ya know, and I'm gettin' really worried about you because stuff keeps comin' up troubling news."

*R finally lets Riley loose, making sure she's well balanced on her perch.* What say, if you're up to it, I just hang here for awhile. We can talk about whatever — baseball or summer picnics or a slip-n-slide in the yard or ice cream at the county fair or sunnin' at the beach... Anything, something...
