Hi Gabby,
Thanks for your message and your prayers. My news isn't all that great today. Mommy got me a smaller collar last week, so that I could move around a little easier and get my head inside of dishes, and get up and down my ladder, etc. Well, yesterday morning when I got up, I had chewed a big piece out of the side of my smaller collar and had pulled out a bunch more of my feathers on my chest and neck where I could get to them! Mommy couldn't believe it! I also opened up the wound on my neck again. So she put the big collar back on me. First she cut about a 1/4 inch off all around it. It was so big that I could barely walk and couldn't funtion to do anything else. The collars go from a tiny 4" size to the next, a 6" size. One is too small and the other is a little too big. Also the neck opening is too big, so Mommy has to pad it really well. There is nothing inbetween those two sizes. The first collar that I had was hand-made by our vet, but Mommy couldn't remove it without destroying it. So she bought one with snaps on it and took it to the vet along with me, to show her and ask if it was ok to use it. The vet said that it was fine. I am continuing to take her medicine well.

I spent every waking and unwaking moment with Mommy yesterday. She was so tired in the afternoon that she took a little nap which she hadn't done in months. She put me on her chest and told me we were going to go night-night. At first I putzed around a bit, poking and nibbling at Mommy. She kept giving me kisses and telling me that she was tired and wanted to go night-night and that I had to also. After about 5 minutes or so, I settled down and leaned up against her face and went to sleep. I slept without moving, pressed up against Mommy's lips and chin, for about an hour....I didn't even poop! Even after Mommy woke up, she didn't move, but lay there watching me, waiting for me to wake up. I was sound asleep. Mommy said that it was really precious....that I am such a sweet little bird and am so loving! Thank you all again for all your prayers. Please keep them up and pray, too, for Kiddo's Mom and Dad and for all of our bird families that may be going through struggles that we are not even aware of. Much Love and Big Hugs to you, and a vote, of course, from Your Friend, Little Lucy
