Thanks for coming by to say hello and for the prayers. We used to share a page with Bella and Charli, but mom decided to give us our own. Mom just got Daffney 2 weeks ago to be a girlfriend for George. Well, Daffney had taken a turn for the worse 2 days after coming home. Mom thought is was kinda normal for her to decline any food or water for the first couple days, since she was stressed about coming to a new home. But she knew Daffney needed the food because she had just layed 12 eggs in the last 2 months. The petstore had not been giving her any kind of calcium suppliment. They said there was enough in the seed mix she was eating there. So mom took her to the vet 2 days after she came home and spent a lot of money on xrays (to make sure she wasn't egg bound), on meds to get her calcium up and they showed mom how to tube feed until Daffney was eating and drinking on her own. Mom stopped by the petstore to tell them what was going on. They told mom that the vet was just trying to take her money, the bird was fine, just stressed out....well, 2 days later Daffney was going down hill fast. She started throwing up everytime mom fed her and was sleeping about 23 hours of the day. So mom took her back to the vet. They did blood work on her and found out she has liver disease. Mom was so heart broken because she had been giving so much to Daffney. Well, the doctor said that she was up to helping mom see if we could beat this. SO, mom gives Daffney 3 different meds twice a day and tube feeds her once a day to make sure she is staying hydrated. In the past week Daffney has started eating on her own and she staying awake most of the day and climbing around the cage. Mom will have her blood rechecked in 3 weeks to see how much progress has been made in the liver level. So far Daffney is responding really well to the medications. The doctor said she will be on these meds long term. Mom said as long as Daffney was happy, we would continue on. But if she went back to where she was, we would have to stop. So, if you could. Say a prayer once in a while for us. George is in love with Daffney and would be so heart broken if she left us. Hope you all have a great night. Heres a vote for you. Pecks, George and Daffney
