Default Rest in peace Kyle

As some of you may know I posted here seeking desperate help for my 7 year old budgie, Kyle. I got him when I was 12 years old and I'm 19 now, so I spent quite a bit of my life with him.

To give a little information to those who saw my original post, I had taken him to the Vet before Christmas because he was quiet, wings drooped, fluffed, not eating, clicking in lungs. The Vet who dealt with us was new to our clinic. Immediately got antibiotics, anti-inflammatory and Emeraid Omnivore. I've been hand feeding him multiple times a day for just over two months, and since then he has been on 4 different antibiotics trying to figure out what it was.

After getting home that first night, when I was feeding him I noticed a lump above his vent. I figured, the Vet didn't say anything, so she must have believed simply a fatty deposit and no need for concern.

The new Vet dealing with us seemed uninterested in getting to the bottom of things so a couple days ago we called requesting to see one of the veteran Vets that has dealt with a lot of our other animals, and has birds of her own. His first weigh-in was 36g before Christmas, today he weighed in 26g so he lost a significant amount of weight. As soon as the vet touched the lump she said tumour, 100% cancerous, a solid mass, and probably had been working its way to his lungs. She's not sure how he lived this long and we all knew he would not survive x-rays or blood work. Being in the condition he was in she advised the best option would be to put him to sleep and it was.

I am so upset and at a loss for words.
Fly high my beautiful blue boy, I know you're not suffering anymore.
I tried my best.


Friend, please don't mourn for me
I'm still here, though you don't see.
I'm right by your side each night and day
and within your heart I long to stay.

My body is gone but I'm always near.
I'm everything you feel, see or hear.
My spirit is free, but I'll never depart
as long as you keep me alive in your heart.

I'll never wander out of your sight-
I'm the brightest star on a summer night.
I'll never be beyond your reach-
I'm the warm moist sand when you're at the beach.

I'm the colorful leaves when fall comes around
and the pure white snow that blankets the ground.
I'm the beautiful flowers of which you're so fond,
The clear cool water in a quiet pond.

I'm the first bright blossom you'll see in the spring,
The first warm raindrop that April will bring.
I'm the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine,
and you'll see that the face in the moon is mine.

When you start thinking there's no one to love you,
you can talk to me through the Lord above you.
I'll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees,
and you'll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze.

I'm the hot salty tears that flow when you weep
and the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep.
I'm the smile you see on a baby's face.
Just look for me, friend, I'm everyplace!

Rest in Peace, sweet handsome Kyle. Keep his cute face and happy song close to your heart, and he will be with you forever. The most difficult decisions are made with the greatest love. Kyle had 7 wonderful years with you. Now he no longer suffers. Kyle is right by your side, just like your beautiful poem says.

I'm so sorry for your loss... You have my deepest sympathies.
I know how difficult it is to reach that decision, but in the end you did the right thing. I'm sure your Kyle knows how much he was loved and cared for while with you.
As time goes by, the pain from not having your budgie boy will lessen and you will be able to remember fondly all the good times you had with him, Kyle will always live on in your heart.

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

Oh - it's just the most tragic thing to lose our budgie friends - the pain goes deep and wide, and is a testament to how much we adored them.
I am so sorry you lost Kyle - You really did everything you knew to do for him, and I know he loved you, and appreciated that; There really was no better thing that you could do at the end than to mercifully help him on his way.
Keep that poem in mind whenever you think of him - over time it will help heal your great sorrow...
I am so sorry for your loss

Default Rest In Peace Kyle. So sorry for your loss.

So sorry for your loss. I lost my little Budgie Blue just before Christmas. I know how heartbreaking it is. He will not be in any pain now. Fly high to Rainbow Bridge Kyle.
