whatever happens

The bird is still very sick. She wouldn't eat and kept getting more weak. We were worried enough to page the vet. She said the prognosis is good, but that it sounded as if the infection had depleted her electrolytes. So - following her instructions - we got Pedialyte to put in Vitae's water, and every two hours we've been feeding her a mix of honey and baby food (two kinds, chicken and vegetable), made into a "slurry" with the water/Pedialyte, and given to her through a syringe. She's improved, but tomorrow, since neither of us will be home to care for her, Randi's taking her to the vet for the day.

:( I hope you can get her back to normal, soon! Poor thing, sounds like she's having a rough time. I'll keep her in my thoughts, and hope for the best.
My goodness, I can only imagine what it must be like too have to prepare the food for the bird. I am sure you are doing the best you can! Get well soon, Kathy!
Poor birdie! You two are such good Mamas! I hope this does the trick.
