I was walking through the pet store and he and his brother were on the floor walking around. Dixie started to crawl up my leg and I picked him up and looked into his big beautiful eyes and that was that..

Hi! My name is Dixie

I am a Green-Cheeked Conure from Marstons Mills, MA.

Keets, Keetsie

22 years old   M

Green-Cheeked Conure

Dixies loves fruity pebbles, peanut butter, all kinds of fruit and food.

favorite hangout spots are snuggling inside my bathrobe or coat at night watching t.v or on my shoulder as I move through the house. Also he likes to go walking with me in the good weather on his harness or in his carriage.

Doesn't like to be kept in the cage all day. He doen't like it when he can't be out where all the action is. And he doesn' like it when he sees my suitcase when I go on vacation. He will pull all the underwear and soxs out of the luggage. Dixie also doesn' like taking his meds and will give me a good fight. If I don't hide it in his favorite foods good enough, he will know and won't eat it.

Mom spoils me the most and I get to eat off Dad's plate and don't have to spend time in the cage when Mom's home and I get so much love and kisses everyday! And snuggle time!

Dixie loves to take showers in the kitchen sink and spray water all over the place. He also loves to flap his wings in the shower on his shower perch. Dixie also likes to walk around the bird room floor looking for crumbs..

Have wings will travel. Must be where the action is..

  Hi Dixie
It's Blue and Jewel.
Glad to hear that Nana made it through the surgery ok. The effect from the meds is only temporary, unlike our dad, who babbles all the time. We will continue to pray for all in your flock and family.
Hugs,
Blue and Jewel.

  Hi Dixie
OK, more Dad hospital stories. The chemo damaged Dad's kidneys, and he has had several hospital stays due to near kidney failure. Twice it resulted in him being out of his head and very combative....and Dad is pretty strong. The first time they had to put him into an induced coma for 4 days, and the second time they put him in restraints until he came out of it after a blood transfusion. So it is not unheard of and it does pass. There are things they can do also. And if it helps your mom's spirits at all, before Dad went to USC cancer center for a 2nd opinion he was given 1-2 years to live, and that was 4 years ago! God looks after us, and I know he is watching over Nana.

Please don't forget today is the last day to vote for Flitzer for BOTM, and I think we all can agree he has run an entertaining and educational campaign. It brought back many fine memories and introduced new movie info. Well done, my friend!

No sun bath today, although no rain yet either. It is supposed to start some time this evening, and continue thru Monday. Actually two back to back storms, and here's hoping we get enough rainfall to make a difference to our poor thirsty Mama Earth.

Mom and I shared the remains of her Chicken Bowl for lunch, and boy do I love me some Chicken Bowl. Since they changed to Subway at the last minute last Friday, I was very pleased to see my favorite (next to jambalaya) last night and today. Then Dad brought me a tiny little tater chip from the store which was Mac and Cheese flavor. It was pretty good, but I am waiting for him to open the Wasabi and Ginger bag. I had one of those when they were out for the contest (these are the two winning flavors) and I know I love that one! I never get a big one, and never more than one a day, but what a treat!

I just came from the Derby Farms page where I threw my name into the lottery. I am hoping to get to ride again, but I have had the honor in the past so if my name isn't drawn I plan to volunteer as a groom. I do love horses, and they all look like winners this year (as they always do!).

  Dearest Dixie
Bless your Nana's heart — she's in a strange place with strange people, not getting to do the usual things she does everyday, plus likely affected by all the meds and drugs used to get her through the surgery and recovery. These are going to be some very tough days for her AND your dear Mom. I'm prayin' it goes by quickly and you all get the Nana you know back real soon. In the meantime, I'm going to keep on worryin' about your Mom and the stress she's under. Thank goodness the kids are able t'help her out. They're good kids, aren't they.

Thanks so much for lettin' me know what's happenin' with your Nana. If it'd be easier for ya, just leave an update on your page and we'll all come by here and check for news. That would save you the time of runnin' all over the BC with notes during this tough time.

Sharin' a comforting and encouraging ((HUG))... and one for your sweet Mom too... (((HUG)))

  Candida and Sugar finish sweeping the
bird room while the boys finish putting the toys away! They all had a fantastic lunch of stir fried veggies and rice and are ready to spend the afternoon playing Apples to Apples again. Mario is going to be the judge today! Sugar knows that Dixie and Kallie are always the best at matching the red apple word to the green apple word! They all enjoy this games!

Later on the birds will watch another movie. Candida thinks they should watch a Tinkerbell movie but the boys think they are too girly!! Sugar tells the boys the dvd she has is about Tinkerbell and pirates so she thinks they will like it!

They are all still praying for Nana and are glad they are together while they wait for more news.

  Hi Dixie
Mom had a class this morning on handling raptors for medical reasons. She knew most of the stuff already, but they have discontinued grabbing one leg in each hand to move a large bird, as it's dangerous for the bird, who could easily break a bone. Instead, they were taught some upright restraint techniques. Mom thinks they will be better for the birds. When there wasn't a large staff there, mom used to help with some of the medical procedures, but now that they have 4 full time and one part time staff, she thinks those days are gone.
While they were in the middle of class the gas guys came because of the call Jill had placed earlier. People have been smelling gas around the front of the clinic for a couple of days, so they were asked to come check it out. Apparently, due to the age of the pipes and building, there is a huge leak somewhere underground between the building and the road below! It means major repairs, no hot water, no heat, etc. for the next few weeks, until the repairs are done. It's going to be pretty uncomfortable up there. Mom hopes it's an electric dryer that they've been using. If it's a gas dryer, that adds another layer to the problem, because of the large amount of laundry to do every day.
Seems like it's always something. The good news is that it's supposed to be in the 40s by mid week, instead of the extremely low temps we've been having.
I hope you are having a great day, staying warm, and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

Dear BC friends, Jenny has identified our stupid weather guesser, his name is Jihadi John, and she going after him, no need to have pity on him, he is merciless, and will deserve anything that happens to him! She packed her ruck sack with her razor sharp Ka-Bar, a bag of pistachios, and her cell phone to call Alfie! Cappy and Panther is going with her to cover her back, who could be better, that TooMan is part attack Zon, and Panther knows the rules of engagement, LOL! Except for another record low temp this AM, -18, we are all doing very well, it is so cold that daddy can not spend much time at Christy's graveside, that always troubles him when he can not connect with the love of his life! Have a great day our dear BC friends, and like always, give our pure love to all in your happy parrot cottage, see ya tomorrow...

Forever love from Jenny & our Dallas flock

  Flitzer Final February Post
THE LOST ART OF THE INTERMISSION:
For many years, longer films were planned with Intermisisons. the story would take a dramatic pause, the music would swell, and the audience got to take a break to use the bathrooms, visit the Refreshment Stand etc.
--
I always loved the Intermission music. Often in the older theaters, curtains would dramatically close on the Intermission, and slowly open when Part 2 began.
--
Nowadays we're forced to sit for 2 1/2, 3 hrs or more without a break.
[The Lord of the Rings films are good examples - they are long, involved, and you're lost if you had to take a break away from the screen].

Even revivals of older films will skip right over the Intermission - forcing you to shift in your seat - and hold it in for another extended period of time - ~ugh~
--
Unfortunately, after paying the high ticket-prices we need to *er* …"step away" from the film for a few minutes, missing possibly something interesting.
--
Theater owners are always conscious of how many showings they can fit in per day, but I say BRING BACK THE INTERMISSION. People *will* spend more for refreshments, and not have to miss any of the movie.

  Hi Dixie
think of Nanas brain as a cold engine that needs to warm up before it can run smoothly. sometimes as those brain cells start firing up all kinds of crazy thoughts and memories will flood her brain. also mom must tell Nana if she doesn't eat it will break your moms heart and if she doesn't eat her brain function will be off and Nana will never be able to do anything. she needs nutrition to heal. mom must become a great actress and sales person to get her point across.

  Grandmas gets the letter with the sand in it and just does not know what it's all about. Suddenly, Wilma putts by on her Red Sand-Splitter and Grandma now knows what Max is talking about! She calls information and gets the number for the North pole!
The 4th of July is a great success. Everyone has a great time. The mailman shows up and has a special delivery for Max! Inside the box is a Red Sand-Splitter from Santa!! Max is very happy and Ruby is surprised!
Just before bedtime, Max writes a thank you note to Santa!"

Dixie and Sugar love the cookies and cocoa. They both had a great time opening the all the flaps and reading all the letters! It was a fun story!

Sugar cleans up after their snack and props Dixie's legs up onto the Hello Kitty pillow. She massages his legs as they talk about the day! They had a great time together.
They both hope that Aunt Rose can get some rest tonight and not worry about Nana. The friends are sure that the nurses will take excellent care of her. They pray that Nana is much better tomorrow and that Aunt Rose can relax for a while. They both wish there was something they could do to help! The agree that keeping Nana and Aunt Rose in their prayers is a good way to help! Sugar tells Dixie that her mom is praying for them too!

Sugar wraps a wing around Dixie and gives him a kiss goodnight. They say the prayers for Nana and Aunt Rose and ad one for Mario too!
Sugar has her won special prayers for Dixie. She loves him so very much and thanks the Lord everyday for bringing him into her life!!

Sleep tight and sweet dreams Bird of My Heart! ♥
I love you to the Moon and back!

  Dixie, Sugar and the Flock
all give Aunt Rose a kiss goodnight. Sugar tells Aunt Rose not to worry about Nana being confused. She knows that it is very scary but it happens for any number of reasons and Nana will be fine in a day or two. She won't remember what happened but that is okay. The same thing happened to dad's mom. She kept telling mom she was in an old house and that her mother was sitting over on the other bed. After a few days she was back to her old self but did not remember the last two days. It is a very scary thing!!!

Sugar and Dixie tuck in the other birds and then waddle over to the platform. Dixie opens the Hello Kitty lunch box and picks out some oatmeal cookies for their snack tonight. He places them on napkins for them while Sugar pours them each a mug of hot cocoa with cream. They nibble on the cookies and sip their cocoa while Sugar starts to read the book she has for them tonight.

"This story is called "Bunny Mail". This book has little flaps to open!!
It is nearly the 4th of July and Ruby is going to have a picnic! As she and her brother Max are walking home so that Ruby can get her invitations out, Max sees his friend Wilma ride by on a beautiful red Sand-Spitter bike! He decides he really wants one!
At home, Ruby gets her invitations done while Max writes a letter to Santa Claus! Ruby tells him that no one writes to Santa Claus in July! When they go to mail the invitations the mailman can not read the address for the letter to Santa so he puts it with Ruby's invitation in their grandmas's mail box. Grandma thinks that Max is trying to tell her that he wants a bulldozer because there are tire tracks on the letter. Grandma sends Max a letter with a picture of a bulldozer in it! Max thinks that Santa is confused so he sends another letter with red circling the tire tracks! Grandma thinks that Max want a red airplane so she sends him a card with a red airplane picture!! Max thinks Santa just does not understand! Max writes another letter and this time he puts some sand in it! Santa will know it is for the Sand-Splitter!

  MY DEAR SWEET FIBLINGS AND COUSIN MARIO
MOM JUST READ THE BLOG FROM KAJI AND HIS MOM. MOM AGREES WITH WHAT IS SAID ABOUT THE ANESTHESIA AND PAIN MEDS AND AND BEING ANEMIC. ALSO ANY TYPE OF SURGERY CAUSES A LOT OF PROBLEMS WITH FOLKS WHO ARE OLDER. THEIR BODIES CAN'T TAKE IT. THAT IS WHY AUNT ROSE SHOULD BE WITH NANA AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE IN THE NURSING HOME TO WATCH OUT FOR HER.

WHEN G-MA WAS IN THE NURSING HOME FOR REHAB AFTER HER RT TOTAL HIP REPLACEMENT THE NURSES DID NOT TAKE PROPER CARE OF HER. SHE HAD A KIDNEY INFECTION THAT THEY WERE NOT WATCHING OR GIVING HER MEDS FOR AND SHE ALSO HAD A INFECTION IN HER TOES. BETWEEN THE INFECTIONS AND LETTING HER BLOOD SUGARS CRASH, G-MA WASN'T IN HER RIGHT MIND. SHE TRIED TO GET OUT OF BED TO GO TO THE BATHROOM BY HERSELF WHEN NO ONE CAME TO HELP HER AND SHE GOT HER LEG CAUGHT IN THE BED RAILS. HER RT HIP WAS SEVERELY DISLOCATED AND HER RT FEMUR WAS SEVERLEY FRACTURED. THE NURSES REFUSED TO SEND G-MA TO THE HOSPITAL THAT NIGHT OR ON SATURDAY WHEN G-PA DEMANDED THEM TOO. IT WASN'T TILL SUNDAY NIGHT A VERY NICE NURSE CAME ON DUTY AND SAW THE CONDITION G-MA WAS IN AND IMMEDIATELY CALLED THE AMBULANCE TO TAKE G-MA TO THE HOSPITAL.

THE NEXT YEAR WAS A NIGHTMARE. G-MA WAS IN AND OUT OF 3 DIFFERENT NURSING HOMES AND THE HOSPITAL AND HAD A TOATL OF 6 SURGERIES ON HER RT HIP/LEG TO PUT IT BACK TOGETHER. MOM HAD MANY EARLY MORNING CALLS BY THE NURSES TO TRY AND CALM G-MA DOWN. IT WAS A LOT OF ARGUMANTS THAT MOM AND G-PA HAD WITH THE DRS ABOUT G-MA'S CARE. ALL THE DR'S WANTED TO DO WAS GIVE LOTS OF PAIN MEDS TO KEEP G-MA FROM COMPLAINING ABOUT BEING IN PAIN. COME TO FIND OUT THAT WHEN IN THE SECOND NURSING HOME THE REHAB PEOPLE DISLOCATED G-MA'S HIP AGAIN. THAT REQUIRED ANOTHER SURGERY. THE DR WOULD NOT AUTHORIZE G-MA TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL TILL HER REGULAR DR'S APPT 3 DAYS LATER.

IT WAS HORRIBLE DEALING WITH THE 3 NURSING HOMES THAT G-MA WAS IN. AFTER THE LAST SURGERY MOM DEMANDED THAT THEY PUT G-MA IN THE HOSPITAL REHAB OR THEY WERE TAKING HER DIRECTLY HOME. THEY WERE NOT GOING THRU THE WHOLE MESS WITH NURSING HOMES. EVEN WHEN G-MA WAS GOING TO BE RELEASED THEY WERE GOING TO SEND HER TO A NURSING HOME AGAIN AND MOM AND G-PA AND MOM'S SISTER SAID NO. THEY WOULD GET A HOSPITAL BED SET UP IN THE FAMILY ROOM AND TAKE CARE OF G-MA. G-MA GOT THAT MERSA INFECTION SO SHE HAD TO BE ON 3 DIFFERENT IV ANTIBIOTICS. SO MOM AND HER SISTER HAD A SCHEDULE OF ADMINISTERING THE ANTIBIOTICS INBETWEEN THEIR BOTH WORKING. G-MA WAS IN THE HOSPITAL BED AT HOME FOR 4 MOS.

G-MA'S RT LEG IS 1 1/2 INCHES SHORTER THAN HER OTHER LEG AND HAS A METAL ROD THAT GOES FROM HER HIP TO RIGHT ABOVE HER KNEE AND HER UPPER LEG IS WRAPPED WITH LOTS OF WIRE TO HOLD THE BONES TOGETHER.

SO WE DO NOT WANT TO SCARE YOU BUT ITS VERY IMPORTANT THAT AUNT ROSE WATCH OVER NANA'S CARE. ALSO IF NANA CAN'T TAKE THE PAIN MEDS GIVEN HER THEY CAN USE A FENTYNAL PAIN PATCH. THAT IS WHAT THEY GAVE G-MA.

PLEASE E-MAIL MOM IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT NAN'S CARE.

  Heya, Dixie!
Well, Nana has a couple of things not in her favor right now--the anesthesia can take a couple days to wear off; the anemia means that she could not have enough oxygen to keep everything functioning at 100% brain wise. Not eating and drinking fluids will slow the elimination of the anesthesia. Plus the pain medication can add to that confusion. Believe Mom when she says that it is common in older folks to have this happen. It will take time to get the darn stuff out of her system, but she will be okay. The best thing for her is to get that transfusion and to get liquids in, whether by IV or mouth.

Diverting her attention is good, so talking about things in her past are good topics. Stay calm, and try to let her know she fell and is in the hospital. She is gonna get out of this mess, and she might not remember what happened. Normal.

Hang in there! Give your Mom wing hugs and beaky kisses from me, and let her know we are praying for her, and for the rest of the family, and Mario and Nana especially.

  Hi Dixie
Mom can so relate to what your mom and her sister went thru today with Nana's surgery. When Dad had his cancer surgery, she got to be with him right up until they sedated him. After that she sat in the waiting room, and although they warned her it would be a 4-5 hour surgery she didn't want to go home. It ended up being 7 hours, and the extra time was because when he was in recovery his BP dropped so low they thought they were going to lose him! Thank goodness Mom didn't find that out till after he was in his room and awake. He was supposed to stay 5-10 days, but it ended up being 23! So prayers for Nana's speedy recovery and complete healing will continue. If your Nana has to go to a rehab facility, she should go to the one she wants.

OK! Mom and I were able to log on to BC on our very first try today! Hopefully that means they got the problem solved. Sure hope so, because Mom almost gave up on it yesterday.

Well, Mom is on page 561 of that 650 page book she is reading, but that's OK because it is only book one of a trilogy. Mom already has book two, so there is plenty of "reading in Kiddo's room" material on hand....and of course, there is always her kindle which is loaded.

No sunbath today! It is downright cold out there for So Cal at 56 degrees right now. They were calling for a high of 65 today, but it doesn't look like it is going to make it. And then Mom just had an Ensure for lunch after the gym instead of a wrap to share with me, but that's OK because it's Friday and that means take out for dinner. Mom will share hers with me for sure.

  Mario and Peepers think that a game of
crazy eights would be a fun way to spend the afternoon. Sugar and Dixie clean up after lunch and bring a bowl of cracker jacks and some juice boxes to the fort!
Mario deals the cards and the friends settle in for another exciting game of card!
Peepers suggest that they watch Paulie later! It is a fun movie and the start is a bird! They all agree with him.
They are all happy to be together in the nice warm house but their thoughts are with Nana. Dixie assures them all that Nana is doing okay!

  Hi Dixie
Mom will call later tonight again, just to check. She sent 2 cards today, one from the Capuchins with spiritual gifts, and one from her. We sent them to Nana's home address, so we hope mom or someone is picking up her mail so she gets them in a timely way.
Mom is going to go up to St. Bart's for the fish tonight, and she will buy some for herself and her neighbor who gives her all the produce in the summer. He's not comfortable going into a Catholic church, as he's Jewish and apparently had trouble with catholic school kids when he was young. Anyway she's going up there early, to avoid the 6PM rush. So she'll be home in plenty of time to phone your mom tonight. If that was a good time last night, she can call again around 9:30, or perhaps a little earlier. Hugs, Pino

We will always be here for you.
It's good to hear that your Nana came through the surgery with no problems. Plain chicken broth is bad enough, but hospital chicken broth has got to be the worst! Dad says he'd rather have a beer. It tastes better and has got to be better for you than broth.
See you tomorrow.

  Hi Dixie
V4U today. All of us have been praying for your Nana. So glad to hear the surgery is over and that it went well. That won't be fun for Nana to have to stay at rehab until her hip heals, but the time will hopefully go by quickly and she will be home before you know it. We will keep on praying for your Nana. And take good care of yourselves, too. Get some rest and have a nice meal. You've all been through a lot. Praying for you all, God bless. From, Marigold

  Flitzer Friday on Film
Before the month winds down, we want to Thank our loyal friends for all their support, kind words and encouragement throughout this past month.
Love from Mark and Flitzer

Dad's Special Movie Memory:
As kids we would get to a movie theater once in a while. Mostly for a Kids Matinee.
We almost never visited the Refreshment Stand. There was one special time which was an exception.
Dad was treated to a special movie with his Mom. They went without the rest of the family -and It was an evening showing, She even bought him popcorn. Can't recall if it was a Birthday or whatever - just that it was a special night.
The film was "MARY POPPINS", which, ever since has been a special movie for Dad.
We spoke earlier this month about how a few notes of music can make a movie-memory come sweeping back. Any music from ‘Mary Poppins’ makes Dad think of that special Movie Night with his Mom.

Come visit me, Flitzer behind the great movies.

  Dixie and Sugar love the scones and the cocoa. They both laugh at Papa trying to help every bear even when they didn't need help! Dixie tells Sugar it was kind of him to think about other bears even when they didn't need help!

Sugar cleans up after their snack and props Dixie's legs up onto the Hello Kitty pillow. She massages his legs and tells him how grateful she is that Nana is going to be okay. She is sure that all the prayers that she, Dixie and flock said helped out! They are sorry that she is going to have to go to a rehab but they figure it won't be too long before she gets to go home. Sugar thinks that Trixie and Bella probably miss her so much already. It's a good thing that Anthony is taking care of them. They will feel better having someone they know around.
Sugar hopes that Aunt Rose gets some good sleep tonight. They both know that she is exhausted and how stressful this all is for her. They love her so very much and want her to take good care of herself! Sugar says she wishes her mom lived nearby because she would certainly help out.

Soon the friends are yawning and stretching their wings. It is time to get some sleep! Sugar wraps a wing around Dixie and gives him a kiss goodnight.
They say their prayers and include a very special on just for Nana. They pray that she has a peaceful night and is not in any pain! They ad a prayer for Mario too!
Sugar has her own prayers just for Dixie. She loves him so very much and thanks the Lord everyday for giving her such a wonderful friend!

Sleep tight and sweet dreams Bird of My Heart! ♥
I love you to the Moon and back!

  Dixie, Sugar and the Flock~
kiss Aunt Rose goodnight. Dixie and Sugar tell her to get some sleep and not to worry. They are taking care of everything and Aunt Rose just needs to take care of herself. They will all be fine!

Dixie and Sugar tuck in the other birds and kiss them goodnight. They waddle over to the platform and snuggle close together. They both agree it was a stressful day waiting for news about Nana but it was good that they were all together! The movie was good and Sugar tells Dixie that he makes the best oatmeal she has ever tasted! She loved the spiced apple on top!
Dixie opens the Hello Kitty lunch box and picks out some blueberry scones for their snack! He places the scones on napkins while Sugar pours them each a mug of hot cocoa with cream. They nibble on the scones and sip the cocoa while Sugar starts to read the story she has for them tonight.

"This story is called "The Berenstain Bears Hurry to Help".
Brother, Sister and Cousin Freddy want to earn their Good Deed Merit Badges. Scout Master Papa tells them that it will be easy to find someone to help! They head off towards town and see old Miz McGriss on the side of the road! Papa tells them that they can help her to cross the street! Papa runs over and tires to help her. She yells stop! She didn't want to cross the street! She was waiting for a bus and now Papa made her miss it! She is not too happy with Papa! They continue into to town and see Farmer Ben sitting in his field. Papa see that the tractor is still going and tells the cubs that Farmer Ben must have fallen off the tractor! He tells the cubs to see to Farmer Ben and he will stop the tractor. When the cubs reach Farmer Ben he tells them that is just taking a rest and everything is fine! Papa throws a log in front of the tractor to stop it! Mrs. Ben gets out of the tractor and asks Papa what he is doing!! She is upset with Papa even if he was trying to do a good deed!
They continue on and see their friend Actual Factual. There are bees everywhere so they run to save him from the bees. Papa gets a bug bomb from his backpack and tries to chase the bees away! It turns out that the bees belong to Actual Factual. Actual Factual did not get angry but the bees did and chased Papa all the way to the pond! The cubs think that maybe they should go home and try again tomorrow but Papa says they will not give up!
He sees a car very near a cliff so they climb up to help them. The bears in the car tell them that they are just enjoying the view! When they start down the mountain, Papa slips and rolls all the way down! The cubs rush to help him but Papa can't stand up! Brother finds a wheelbarrow and the cubs get Papa into it. They get him home and he is sore but okay.
The cubs tell Mama that they are very sad that they couldn't find anyone to do a good deed for! Mama tells them that getting their Papa home was a good deed!! The cubs all get their merit badges and Papa gets some rest!

  Hi Dixie
Chyna hugs her friend very tight. I'm so sorry to hear about Nana. Please give our love to your mom and hug her for us. I hope she is doing better now that the surgery is over. That seems late in the day to have to endure pain for that long. Please give Nana a hug from us too. We are sending our love and lots of prayers for all of you.
I won't keep you long ...
Thanks for liking my new pic and the one of my parronts (it's 4 yrs old). Birds were asking what my dad looked like. It was taken on vacation. He usually is bundled up plowing our driveway.
Tonight we'll be down to -22 degrees. Dad has the generator ready to go ... just in case! They cleared the roads down to the ice, greyt job!! We should see some sun the next few days. Hurry SPRING!
Hugs and kisses and love and prayers
Chyna (and mom Jane)

  Hey Dixie!
We are very happy that Nana came thought the surgery ok. How was she feeling tonight? Is she still so nauseated? We feel so bad for her...and all of you.
Tell your momma to try and get some rest. She has some busy days ahead of her. Wish we could help.
We are praying for Nana's recovery and for your whole family too.
Sending healing prayers and warm hugs,

  MY DEAR SWEET FIBLINGS ANDCOUSIN MARIO
OH POOR NANA. I HATE HEARING HOW MUCH SHE IS IN PAIN. IF NANA GETS NAUSEOUS FROM THE MORPHINE OR DEMEROL, SHE CAN TAKE DILAUDID. ITS ANOTHER TYPE OF PAIN MEDICINE. OUR G-MA HAS TO HAVE THAT ONE AS MORPHINE AND DEMEROL MAKE G-MA NUTS IN THE HEAD.

DID THE DR PUT IN JUST A SCREW OR DID HE DO A PLATE AND SCREW. OR SOMETIMES THEY END UP DOING A TOTAL HIP REPLACEMENT DEPENDING ON WHERE THE BREAK IS.

DOESN'T THE HOSPITAL HAVE THEIR OWN REHAB FLOOR? IT WOULD BE GOOD TO REHAB NANA IN THE HOSPITAL BEOFRE SENDING HER OFF TO A REHAB FACILITY.

MOM SAYS TO TELL AUNT ROSE TO CHECK ON NANA AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE WHILE SHE IS IN THE REHAB CENTER. MAKE SURE NANA IS TREATED NICELY AND TAKEN PROPER CARE OF. BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR IF NANA COMPLAINS OF MORE PAIN THAN USUAL. VERY IMPORTANT TO WATCH OVER NANA AND HER TREATMENT.

TELL NANA THAT WE ARE PRAYING HARD FOR HER TO HAVE A QUICK RECOVERY. NANA IS STRONG AND A FIGHTER.

I AM SO GLAD THAT SKIN BRO IS STAYING AT NANA'S AND CARING FOR BELLA AND TRIXIE. I THINK A GOOD IDEA WOULD BE FOR SKIN BRO TO MOVE IN WITH NANA TO HELP HER. IT WOULD SAVE SKIN BRO ON RENT. HE CAN SHOVEL NANA'S DRIVE AND TAKE HER SHOPPING AND HELP HER WITH BELLA AND TRIXIE. I THINK IT WOULD BE GOOD FOR NANA AND SKIN BRO.

MOM SAYS THAT IF WE LIVED CLOSER SJHE WOULD BE THERE TO HELP OUT ALSO.

WE ARE SENDING ALL OUR LOVE AND HEALING PRAYERS TO NANA. TELL HER WE ARE THINKING OF HER EACH AND EVERY DAY.

SENDING SWEET BEAKIE KISSES AND WARM WING HUGS TO ALL OF YOU.
PLEASE GET SOME SLEEP AUNT ROSE, YOU NEED TO KEEP YOUR STRENGTH UP AND EAT SO YOU DO NOT GET SICK.

WITH ALL OUR LOVE,
KACEY, SWEETPEPPER & MOM TERI ♥

  Heya, Dixie!
We are so happy that Nana came thru the surgery okay. And we are not thrilled that she is nauseated--the anesthesia can do that, and the pain meds can too. Just am hoping they find a pain medicine that will take care of her pain without making her sick. And she will need to go to the rehab place--hip fractures are not the best, as you have to keep off the hip, and make sure you keep it aligned just right. She is gonna hafta learn to use a walker initially. So the rehab place is the best place for her, as they will have equipment to help her get in and out of bed easier.

We just keep sending our good thoughts and prayers to you and your family! And you make sure your Mom takes care of herself, or she won't be good support for Nana. I am sure your Dad is okay with the dinner he gets--he knows that your Mom was just wiped out after being in the hospital all day. Even if you do not do anything but sit, it is hard cuz of worrying and not sleeping and waiting.

Wing hugs and beaky kisses coming at you and your Mom.

Your buddy,
Kaji

  Hi Dixie
Oh no! Mom just got the news about Nana and her broken hip. Did she slip and fall on the icy driveway? Regardless a broken bone when we get older is always painful, and when it is the hip it gets scary. So please know that Nana is in our thoughts and prayers and we understand that your mom will not be able to blog for a bit. We are here for you all.

Quick blog today since Mom wasn't able to log on to BC at all earlier. I am already in bed, but I told her what to say for me.

I actually got a sunbath today! It hit 73 degrees, so Mom got me out there right at noon and it was lovely. Then we came in and had a turkey, pepper jack cheese and spinach wrap for lunch. Now why does she have to load all that spinach on there? I accidentally ate some, and yikes! That stuff is good for you! I must admit I do like that spicy cheese though.

  Hi Dixie
V4U today. My mom is so far behind in answering our blogs. Our weather has been just awful, and there's no use complaining about it, it's the same old thing. We just wish spring would get here soon.

So very sorry to read on the Calendar Page that your nana fell and broke her hip. We are praying for your nana, and we hope that the surgery will go smoothly and that everything will be just fine. Take care and God bless.

From, Marigold

  Dixie, Sugar and the flock clean
up after the lunch they made and waddle off to the TV room. They are sticking close together today while Aunt Rose is off with Nana. They have been praying for Nana all morning! It helps that they are all together today! They pop in the Sound of Music and relax on the sofa to enjoy the movie! Their minds are all on Nana!
