Unhappy Sunflower's Sudden Death

Hello...

I write this with a heavy, shattered heart.

Sunflower passed away one week ago today. I have not had the ability to post an in memory on her because I have been in so much pain since her passing.

Last Sunday night, I got home and noticed that she was obviously having trouble laying an egg. I had never seen such a sight! Her vent was more swollen than I had ever thought could realistically happen with such a small bird.

In a panic, I did everything that is recommended for an egg bound budgie. Warm bath, rubbed olive oil around the egg, lubricated the cloaca and even tried preparation H. Heating pad, humidifier, warm quiet place to rest.

She was scheduled to go to the vet first thing in the morning. Though I am still trying to pay off all of Banana's vet bills, I just couldn't bear to lose my Sun Sun!

The next morning I woke to check on her and she was gone... I can't even describe my pain! Only six months ago I lost her mom, Peaches, tragically from a sudden stroke/heart attack in my hands. Not even two months have passed since her dad, Banana, lost his battle with heart/liver disease and a more than likely cancerous tumor. Never in a million years did I see this coming...

I made a YouTube video of Sunflower singing and diving into her portable wine bag that she loved. It was a way of me coping after Banana passed away. I would play it for the three fids multiple times daily.

Here is the link for Sunflower's video.

Sometimes life is not fair. I just pray God gives me the strength to carry on, despite my budgie family that I have known for so many years being torn apart.

Kristen

Oh nooo... I really can't take that when people write these things. That makes me sad each time, when I read about the losses of a loved pet! sometimes life is really cruel and hard and I really send you all my wishes and strength to get over this difficult time! to lose one bird must be very sad, but to lose 3??? God that is not fair...

But I wish for sunflower, that she flies high and free with her family now!

Thank you so much Tanja for your kind words. I miss them all so much. Such a huge cage with two budgies... Hardly feels like the big happy family that once sang, bickered, and filled me with joy. I will cherish my remaining two budgies, Pistachio and Pear Bear!

Sorry for your losses. No words can express what you are going through. But the key word here is through! You will go through it and you will feel joy once again. Keep them close in your memory and remember the good times you've had together. Now is not the time, but you will know when your heart is open to love again. Your flock will always remember you. They are flying high and free.

Thank you Lucy.

Time does help cure all wounds. Maybe not completely, but I must take it one day at a time and know Sunflower is with her mom and dad and flying high and free. She is the first bird I have ever known from an egg and lost...

I am so very sorry for your losses... I no it is hard right now the pain acks. Your budgies had a wonderful life with you and you gave them love and the best of everything. Remember the good times you shared and treasure the loving memories in your heart as they will be there forever..
I no how you feel losing my loved budgie 2 years gone in December and i miss him so very much it leaves a hole in your heart and the tears just fall... But i loved him so very much he is now in my heart i have loving memories of him which i will never forget..
Cherish all of the time you have had with them.. If you need to talk we are here for you.
You are a wonderful person with a lot of love to share around maybe one day you may like try again but till then you need to grieve.. You will no when the time is right to try again.. We no you loved your Budgies very much...

Fly free little ones and sing a beautiful song high up in the sky..

Somewhere over the rainbow
They say that dreams come true
Some day over the rainbow
I'll sit awhile with you

Gonna wrap my arms around you
And whisper in your ear
Gonna tell you all the love I feel
How my heart holds you so dear

Gonna lovingly gaze at you
Let my heart skip as you smile
Than tenderly I'll kiss you
Hold you close for just awhile

Yes, somewhere over the rainbow
They say that dreams come true
But I knew my dream came true
That day I met you

Thank you Lyn.

Thankfully I still have two of the three babies from Banana and Peaches who recently passed. Pistachio is very shy and doesn't tweet much. She's the oldest. Always been kind of the outsider.

Then there is Pear Bear. She is a ball of energy! Tweets just like a male budgie! I feel like she has taken on the choir that was once made up of the family of five! I was in tears last night just listening to her solo performance. It was beautiful!

One day at a time. Rainbow Bridge couldn't have asked for a better little budgie to help watch over us all.

How shocking, I'm so sorry you lost Sunflower now... I can't even imagine what it must feel like to cope with all these recent losses...
You have my deepest sympathies. It may take some time for your heart to heal, but I do hope you will feel better soon. The memories of Peaches, Banana and now Sunflower will always be with you and very close to your heart as well.
Be sure to give extra attention to Pistachio and Pear Bear, they will also help you during this very sad time.

Rest in peace, beautiful Sunflower. You were much loved and will be missed.

Oh no what a sad situation to wake to. I feel for you please accept my best wishes and I know one day you will be able to say her name without crying and feeling sad, the sadness you feel now unfortunately is a part of the joy that she gave freely to you she is with her budgie family now flying high and free.

Oh no - I am simply heartbroken to hear about your lovely Sunflower, especially after Banana and Peaches so recently. It's just the saddest thing - I pray for strength for you to go through this time of grief, and eventually, comfort in your happy memories of that sweet little thing...
May the gorgeous Sunflower rest in peace now
