Default Sweet Lily at rest now

I know I have not posted in a long time but it has been a long journey for me . Almost a year and half ago, my (7 1/2 yrs old)Lily was diagnosed with a tumor on her lower vent area. She had been a chronic egg layer and the first female bird I ever had. She was always cheerful and brave to the end. She passed peacefully yesterday morning. The avian vet told me she probably only had a month to live but she lived a yr and half more.As the bump progressively got bigger, I made more adjustments and accommodations to her cage and spoiled her with care and her favorite treats. I knew the day would eventually come as she was spending more time on the floor but would still somehow manage to climb somehow up to the lowest perch to visit with me. Alas. I just want to thank everyone over the years for advice about her egg laying etc because it was much appreciated. I will miss her as will my other two budgies. She taught me so much about perseverance.

Awww....sorry she has gone. You gave her a good life and she obviously enjoyed you and fought to stay. I hope as time passes, you are filled with warm and joyful memories that replace the sadness and sense of loss you feel now....

Rest in Peace, sweet beautiful Lily. Keep her cute face and happy song close to your heart, and she will be with you forever. Lily was a special friend. Your love and good care gave her more time with you. She did not give up easily. I am so sorry for your loss.

What a lovely and sweet budgie you had it is nice to hear heart warming stories of hens too as so often they get a bad name. lily was very special and is now at peace flying high and looking down on you. She fought hard and long, and through the journey you shared some magical and loving memories I am sure, with time these memories will visit you often and a smile will return once more when lily's name is thought.

I'm so sorry for your loss... You did your very best for Lily and I'm sure she knows how much she was loved and cared for.
Cherish the memories of the good times you had with your precious girl, she will always live on in your heart.

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

Thank you so much for all of your kind words. I have on occasion tried to comfort others who have lost their birds but I have not done it enough.So I will now because I know how much these birds mean to us. I know Lily is at peace now. My past experiences with losing birds were painful because they went quickly,suffered so much, or I would have to medicate them through my tears. Lily taught me how to care for her in a slow motion sense. I posted about her in the health section when she was diagnosed at the time,and got great advice about treasuring my times with her and to shower her with treats.My best memories are of course of when she was impish or being a hen to her clutch of eggs; but the quiet moments of just sitting and chirping softly by me are the ones I feel now.
Thank you so much.

That extra year & a half she lived after the diagnosis is a clear indicator of how much love & care you showed her.

R.I.P Lily, fly high over Rainbow Bridge.
