Yeah, so I had Edy out with me in the living room, watching Scary Movie 3 (my favorite of the series), and we were doing flappies as usual... and then she suddenly... I dunno how to describe it; she kinda "folded" or something, like she was injured... and then she lost conciousness and went limp... Mom tried to feel her pulse and thought she could feel a faint pulse... I tried CPR (which I don't know perfectly; just kinda had an idea of it, but there was no time to look it up), and feeding her some applejuice from a syringe while Mom was on the phone with the nearest vet (I don't really like that clinic, but it's real close to our house and they do emergencies)... I put Edy in her carrier with some towels to keep her warm and comfy, and we rushed to the vet, me talking to her and pleading with her to stay with me, hoping it would be like that Futurama episode "The Sting" where they thought Leela would never wake up, but Fry kept talking to her, and then she did... but Edy...

Normally when I'm sad, I hold and pet her and she helps me feel better... but there's no one to do that now... Sunny and Snowy aren't tame, and Bullet I haven't yet had long enough to build the kind of bond that I had with Edy... and part of me thinks I should rehome them anyway because knowing my luck, they won't be around long if they stay with me, no matter how much I love them... I know this sounds odd, but it's because I love them so much that I'm afraid to get too close to them...

I didn't cry myself to sleep last night... but only because I didn't even get any sleep for fear of waking up to an empty cage...

I LOVE YOU, EDY! :(

By the way- I know what you mean about being scared to get too close to them but you can't fear it because of how much joy they can bring. If you do decide to rehome them it's up to you but I say enjoy every moment like it's their last.

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your beloved Edy :( I can't even imagine the pain you must be feeling, I wouldn't think about rehoming your other birds right now you don't want to make any decisions just yet when your going through so much hurt, give it some time and see how you feel.

Sorry about your loss. I know how you feel. We lost a baby a couple weeks ago. My fiance found her in the morning. It's hard but hang in there.

I'm so sorry to hear about Edy. :( I know how you feel about not wanting to feel too close, it's overwhelming to think of them being gone. It sounds like you did everything you could for her, and she had you holding her in her last moments. I know she would have appreciated that. RIP Edy.

I don't know if I can even post here anymore... it's just too painful... all these pictures of people's tiels doing cute stuff...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ynvh3o2EW2s I'm scared to walk in the front door... this is the chirp she always greets us with when we get home... now I'm finding myself whistling to her in a futile attempt to get her to whistle back... I know it won't work, but I want so badly for her to be there waiting for me like always...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVSxe99IPsc She'd turn her head to the side and close her eyes when I rubbed around her ears... possibly the cutest sight ever...


Soon after I first brought her home...


(don't worry, I was really careful to make sure she never touched any chocolate)


















She loved the Harrisons, and our shipment that we ordered just came today...







I want my Edy... I want her back so badly...

I can totally understand if you don't want to post on here for awhile, but I do hope if thats what you do you will come back, its not always going to feel this bad I know you will never forget her but it will get easier in time to think about her and smile and remember the good times you had together. Edy was such a beautiful little girl RIP Edy

Edy sure was beautiful. Did you buy a nice flower or something to remember her by? I always bury special pets under a pretty plant. :(

No... I don't usually do that... I'm terrible with plants. But the others are buried on the side of the house, where plants always grow anyway, aside from Harvey, who's buried in a pretty blue flowerpot with a fake rose in it... Edy... we haven't actually done anything yet, but we need to real soon (tomorrow, probably)... but it's so hard for me to think about... :(

I'm sorry...you should have a little ceremony. I couldn't be there when we buried Bella- it hurt too much. My mom did it a pretty velvet jelewry box under her roses. Then she bought this little angel holding a bird and put it there as a thombstone. It was really nice but I still get sad when I go home and pass by there. I have pictures and memories to remember her by, unfortunetly I wasn't obsessed with my camera then so I only have a few pics. It doesn't hurt as much now as it did back then (2/14/2005). RIP BELLA_ I will ALWAYS love u!

RIP little EDY!

This was beatiful.:(
Thanks... I posted it as a link because I forgot you could still view it at full size even though the board resized it... I printed it out and am going to have it laminated (or re-printed on photo paper, if I can find the photo paper)...
