Default R.I.P Skater

Skater was the first chick i got out of these birds. he was born with splayed legs, i didnt realize what it was until he was 30 days old. so we went to the vets after i noticed his mum wasnt feeding him.

the vets said the cut off point was 2 weeks of age. but we tried anyway. Skaters legs were splinted together and i got to hand feed my first budgie^^

a week later i took him back to the vets for a check up on his legs and the vet was very surprised at how well he was doing. he changed the splint and he was sent home for another week.

during that week Skater decided that he would try and fly. i didnt realize he'd be able to get as high and far as he did and i couldnt catch him in time! he fell and his leg turned purple and was rushed to the vets again.

urgh a broken leg and a new splint later and he was home and as well as can be. next morning i had noticed that the vet had tied the string on his leg too tight and there was a red bubble underneath! i cut off the string and added my own.

over the course of the next few days Skaters toes started to die and turn brown.

another week went by and a new splint and news that the break was healing well.

the fourth and final week the cast had become really loose and Skater was trying to chew it off but ripping up his leg instead, also his 2 toes finally dropped off. so back to the vets.

i told the vets just to take the splints off and see how it all looks. when he woke up from his anesthetic he was trying to walk around, still a bit drowsy.

after a few minutes, for the first time he was walking by himself without any casts or splints. i was so proud of him!

but it wasnt to be, the vet told me that his leg hadnt mended straight and there was lumps growing on the bone. Skater would never stopped picking the skin off of his leg. plus with the leg the way it was it would have put pressure on the keel and would cause him more pain in the long run. so he was put to sleep.
----------------

im so happy that i got to see him walk for the first time. i just wish he could have stayed. i will miss him lots XXX

Poor Skater had a really rough start at life and now he sleeps peacefully and pain free. I'm very sorry for your loss.
Rest in peace, little Skater. You will be missed.

Poor little Skater was a fighter. He had many challenges in his little life and you certainly tried all you could for him.

I'm really sorry for all you've been through and now that you no longer have him with you.

Hugs.

Rest in Peace, sweet brave Skater. Keep his cute face and happy song close to your heart, and he will be with you forever. They leave us much too soon. I am so sorry for your loss.

Poor little Skater he was a fighter.. I am so very sorry for your loss he is now out of pain..

Rip little Skater and fly free and sing a beautiful song..

As I sit in Heaven and watch you everyday
I try to let you know with signs I never went away.
I hear when you're laughing, and watch you as you sleep.
I even place my arms around you, to calm you as you weep.
I see you wish the days away, begging to have me home.
So I try to send you signs, so you know your not alone.

Heaven is truly beautiful, Just you wait and see.
So live your life, laugh again, enjoy yourself, be free.
Then I know with every breath you take,
You'll be taking one for me.

I'm sure he's looking down on you now and remembering how lucky he was to have you as his mum
