  Mom still loves me
Mom still misses me. She is trying to find a birdie like me (my personality). She has contacted places as far away as Pennsylvania. Her best lead is in Virgina about 3 hours away.
I hope she can find a pretty bird who will love her.

  Birdies?
My mom is still sad. Won't someone tell her they hope she feels better someday? She misses me so much!

  Over the Rainbow Bridge now
I said goodbye to mom early this morning and flew to the Rainbow Bridge about 6 o'clock. Mom has my little body wrapped in a gold scarf.
I see how much she loved me almost as much as I loved her.
Birdies, send wishes to my mom that she does not cry so much. She has Nestlee and Dovey and Martian to comfort her.
I look forward to all the birdies I will meet at the Rainbow Bridge!!!

Come visit me, Dickon, Lemonhead RIP & Martian.

  Obstruction
My stools have been white when I have them. Mom noted I was all fluffed out and back to the small warm room with humidity. Today I started throwing up everything I tried to eat. Mom has been crying and telling me she loved me. I sat on the back of her neck for a few hours.
Hope I can keep my 4 o'clock appointment in the closest vet to me tomorrow!

  Almost cured
I feel so much better! I like having a warm room all to myself, with only mom's attention. I let her rub my head and cheeks. It feels good! I did not know what I was missing! Mom sounds so happy when I let her skritch my head. She loves me!

  Feeling better
I feel better each day. Mom praises me really loud when I eat or drink something. I am still in a little room in a little cage but it is OK, mom visits me a lot. I have a toy that I played with a little which makes mom happy.

  Ouch! Bad week!
I laid an egg Wednesday night. Then Mom noticed something hanging from my bottom. I was in an incubator fast! Mom sat up with me most of the night. She took me to the vet on Thursday. I had an x-ray of my tummy. Mom was so relieved that I was NOT egg bound that she hugged the vet. I had a cloacha prolapse. I had to have stitches! Ouch! I am still in a special room, in a special cage with extra heat. Mom checks on me a lot. She praises me when I drink water or nibble on food. Nestle calls to me from the other room. I think Mom is mad at him for "being on me all the time". What does that mean?

I got so tired of waiting on mom to come back from her bathroom that I flew from room to room to find her. I landed in the sink! She rescued me and carried me back to perch and stayed with us.

Mom has even bigger hair things now. They are big enough for me to climb into with plenty of room around my little body. Only my tail feathers stick out.

It's that time of year again when mom is perched in front of the computer all day and late in night with her "stoodents". What is a stoodent? Why do they need my mom's attention so much:(

Mom trimmed my wings the other day. I can't fly all over the room like I am used to doing! I even have to walk across the floor!
At least my toys are handy and am getting treats on time.

  Ha ha Nestlee is not so smart
Mom put in a nice mirror in our home. When Dovey can pry herself away from it, I like to look at myself. My poor mate, Nestlee, pecks at me for being "attracted to another birdie".

I like my men big and stupid:)

  carrots
Carrots are the best toys! They stand up, they dangle green stuff that is fun to chew, they have yummy orange stuff that is great to gnaw on. Mom thinks we look cute when carrots stain our faces. She called me "carrot breath" when I came up to her to give her a piece.

Mom had a visitor the other day. What is a trainer? She did not look like anyone who had been here before. We were all very shy. I, being, the bravest, came up to Mom to play with her glasses. Visitor said "aawwww"

It's hot! Mom spends time outdoors on porch with water sprinkler or she holes up in her dark cage with fan on. (She won't let me in there). Have to play with her when she shuffles out to fridge. Want more mom time.

  I'll take all comers...
The bourkies' cage door was open so I went in to sample their food. All 3 bourkies went wild. I took 'em ALL on! They are all squawk and no beak bite. But mom came and took me out of their cage. She scolded me saying they could beat me up. I just calmed her down by playing with her glasses.
I know how to calm her down.

  Eureka!
I found mom's secret hideout! I watched her go to her outside perch. I balanced on the aluminum ledge of a window pane and chirped at her. She saw me and laughed. She told me I was a very smart birdie. She whistled back and forth with me. Then I fussed at her to come back inside. She went back to looking at the rectangle she looks a lot.
But I know how to find her other perches now!

I am adorable, I am lovable, I am wonderful. That's what mom says to me. She is really happy that when she asks "Where's my little boy?" I fly to her from across the room. I used to just let her know where I was.
She is so easy to please.
But I wish she would not sleep so much.

We have a new home! It is as tall as human! She hired her clutch mate to put it together for us! It has new ropes and perches and feeder stations and our favorite toy right in the cage! Until now we had to go outside to get to our orbiter toy.
We LOVE it!

I hate to molt. My face looks like a lizard! Mom always worries about me---she thinks someone is pecking me.
I am still mad at her for going away for her Eastern Orthodox thing. She did not tuck me in! She did not tell me good night! We like to be covered at night!

Where does mom go during the day? She comes out when we call her, then she goes back to her nest. I missed her today and when she finally came out I flew to her, danced up and down her arms, played with her glasses, hung on her necklace, rubbed my cheek against hers and all of my other bag of tricks.

Guess I lucked out: laid another egg two days later at 9:56PM. Not to painful this time. Mom was worried that I would have 4 MORE EGGS(: Whew! Dodged a bullet.

  My first egg!
I laid my first egg today at 9:51 PM! Mom heard me squeaking and saw my wings shivering. She came next to me and talked me through my contractions. Those hurt so bad I had to close my eyes. It was hard to pass the egg but Mom kept telling me that I would be all right. She waved off Dovey who didn't have a clue. Martian gave me consoling cheeps.
After my egg passed I rested then Mom got me out and held me until my strength came back.
Had a little nap. Mom told me how glad she is I am OK.
Whew! Passed first egg! Hope Nestlee chases Dovey for a while.
