Default Rest in Peace Lily

I had to make the heart breaking decision today to euthanize Lily. She was suffering from avian bornavirus and had recently developed an abdominal mass that could have been a hernia or a tumor.

I brought her to the vet today because it was really obvious she wasn't doing well at all. There was nothing that the vet could do for her and she was going to continue to decline (I had taken her to the vet like 2 weeks ago and from that visit til today she had lost 5 grams). The best option was to euthanize her to ease her suffering.

I feel so terrible and guilty. Especially because none of the other birds were able to say goodbye to her. I know it was the right choice, but it was one of the hardest choices I've ever had to make.
