Our Friend, St. Francis of Assisi

Last Friday I had to take Sadie, our parrot, to the vet because she was obviously ill and had not eaten in four days. Leaving her there to be anesthesized, x-rayed, weighed, and examined, I noted sculptures, statues, and flowers on the lawn. I switched to my blogger mode when I returned to pay a HUGE bill and collect the bird. I'm not sure if she is recovering on schedule, but we have our fingers crossed. To see healthy Sadie, click here.

  1. That's an appropriate statue for a vet's office. Sadie is a beautiful bird, and I hope she recovers.

  7. I hope Sadie gets well. And I trust the food isn't some of that imported from China that has made so many dogs and cats ill.

    The birds in our lives are taken in not really knowing how long some of them will be with us. We had Rocky who was a Zebra Finch and he was around longer than 2-females of his kind and finally just got old and died. Twenty-two years is a long time to get acquainted and I am sure you both admire each other a lot.

    Good luck on the bird.

  8. Sadie really looks nice... and she is ONLY a bit over 20! I understand parrots live long, so I wish her some decades more of life, hopefully in good shape after the intervention!

    St. Francis is almost hidden by bushes and flowers, but you found him!

  9. I hope Sadie turns out to be just fine. What did the vet say was wrong with her?

  10. Kate~ A few healing wishes for Sadie. I hope she is recovering well. Having had to put down my cat of 20 years a few months ago, I understand the fear and angst when dealing with a pet who won't (or can't) eat. (((HUGS)))
