Default Melody is dying, please send prayers and positive thoughts to her

Guys I am desperate. Melody got sick again (regurgitating and got heavily under weight) on my birthday and I took her to the vet who kept her 3 days and sent her back home.
Their diagnosis was that her liver is enlarged, probably because she was preparing to lay eggs but I didn't give her a nest. Then they said she got a liver disease that probably causes the recurring crop infection that stops her from eating on the first place and they did an injection to her to stop her hormones temporanely until she got better and fit to lay eggs.

Yesterday night she got sick again and today I took her to the vet and this time they told me that if she doesn't get better by tomorrow, or if her blood test's results are as bad as the last week's ones, she has to be put to "sleep".

I know it may be unrealistic but I DO believe in miracles and if I get enough positive vibes and energy on her this can happen.

So far in 2 months I spent approximately 750 on her treatment...I don't have this money but for her I'll do ANYTHING....I can't accept that all these sacrifices were in vain. I am not ready to say goodbye to her...neither is her companion...please everyone who is reading this...take 30 seconds of your time to send positive vibes to her now. Tomorrow it may be too late.

Thank you so much

BIG UPDATE (19/11)

Melody seemed to be better and was released on the 17th of November (2 days ago) and is now on a new antibiotics.

I bought the Harrison's Bird Food and started to give to her, she doesn't like it so I did start the conversion adding a little bit of her seeds in there. Yday night I saw her regurgitating once. Today more than once, especially after giving her medication.

Guys I am desperate! She just came back 2 days ago, maybe I'm giving her the medication in the wrong way? After I give it to her she sneeze liquid and I'm afraid that instead of taking the antibiotics she is expelling it through the nose. Am I right or the sneezing is normal? I called the vet but he is busy now and will call me back probably in the evening.



ANOTHER BIG UPDATE (20/11)

Melody was regurgitating a lot yday, the vet however was too busy to see her and asked me to monitor her and go today at 1.30pm.

Yesterday afternoon I brought her in another room of the flat as I thought it may be something in the room making her sick (allergy or smth). We had some girl talk and she reacted by becoming more active and trying to eat. She then reached 34g again and was stable to this weight until this morning. Immediately after giving her antibiotics and liver supplement she got sick again as it happened yesterday. Her weight went down and she was 31g when I brought her to the vet...by the time we arrived and her weight was checked she was 30g. The vet is pessimistic and wanted to put her to sleep right on the spot. I was angry, sad, desperate, confused and started to ask him lots of questions. I wanted to ask him why is it that she always gets sick only after a day that she has been back home and if it was possible to keep her there for the whole 2 weeks that I was supposed to give her antibiotics for the crop and he told me that basically I didn't understand him as 2 weeks won't be enough for her to cure the infection, that it will take a lot more than that. That basically she is okay at their place because they feed her with a tube and do fluid injections to her and I obviously can't do that at home. He said if she was his he would do the ultimate injection to her and say goodbye. I was desperate and crying and asked him to give her another shot and he said that I am not doing this for her but for myself as I can't let her go and that even if she gets better I will end up there next week for the same reason.

I said I understand and then he told me that this time she might not even survive those 2 days. I left the vet but then thought throughly about it and went back just to spend some time with her, in case it was actually the last time I see her. We were put in a safe room where she could fly around and was active and always coming on my shoulder or finger to get my attention, trying to escape Cory's clinginess as he never leaves her alone (I always leave him with her when she's at the vets).

Guys I don't want to give up on her. I contacted another vet that has some knownledge of birds and when I explained to him the situation he said that if she is really reacting by flying on me and my partner wanting our attention then she still wants to live and we should not give up yet, however we should not go to far with this.

What do you honestly think? Did I take the right decision? What should I do? Please I am desperate, you have no idea of how much I love her. I am not being dramatic or exaggerate when I say that I would actually give my life away for hers. She is my daughter, I have this amazing bond with her and my life is basically all around her and Cory, I do my best for them and always put them first above everything or everyone else.

This is an insane attachment I know, but that's how it is. I need your prayers, supports, advice...please everyone. It took so much time and effort to make them move in UK from Japan and they arrived just 3 months ago....it can't be how the story ends for her. I refuse to believe this.
