A sad vigil  
I left fighter practice early in order to try and get some things done - errands and stuff around the house. Instead, I came home to find Miss Tweet at the bottom of her cage. She appears to have had a birdie stroke - she can't fly or stand, but does not appear to be in any real distress or pain.The vet says that about all they could do for her is put her in an incubator to keep her warm. Instead, I have her next to me in a little bin in a muslin nest with food and water within reach... She took a little water from a straw earlier, but now does not seem to be focusing well on anything.

There's really nothing to be done, and I hate that.  

(Oddly enough, the quote of the day is "Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn't." - Erica Jong I knew what the vet would tell me, but called anyway. :/)

Keep her warm and love her. She may surprise you.

I'm sorry. I'm glad you're able to spend some time with her.

:( poor little birdie. Keep her close, give her comfort, and warm things to snuggle into. I've been there for two of my birdies passing and both wanted to cuddle into me at the end.. even the one who had loved to bite me just a few days prior. It's a difficult thing, but they seemed to appreciate the closeness, in their own little birdie way.

big big hugs to you :(

Yeah, she was extrasooper cuddly, and she was usually my biter. I let her sit on me as much as possible and gave her handwarmers whenever I had to put her in the bin. :/ Poor budgie.
