Default Not a budgie...but still...

I guess I should say I don't know how to feel right now. I know there isn't anything else I could have done. It came on suddenly, just the fluffed feathers. No other symptoms AT ALL.
Emerald was a pretty little parrotlet, just a baby. I'm confused as to why one so young had to be taken from us. I know it happens, and I know the questions I ask myself will never be answered, but still...she was just a few months old.
I was sitting in the bird room when my fiance came in yesterday...he looked so sad. I asked him what was wrong and he told me Emmie hadn't made it. I didn't quite understand because just an hour ago I had been holding that adorable little green puff ball...
I was shocked...then angry. Angry at myself. Wasn't there anything else I could have done? I was planning on taking her to the vet today...She didn't seem seriously ill.
I think what makes me feel the worst is that I don't linger on her death. The air is crisp with fall and I'm ready to enjoy today as if there weren't going to be another. I know that sounds silly...
I'm just glad that we had her for the month we did. I think never knowing is what will hurt the most. I would have taken her to get a necropsy done but it wasn't practical to hold on to her until today...
Her best buddy, who is also one of my best buddies, is now in total quarantine. I bought them from the same breeder, and I figure if something was wrong with the one, maybe something is wrong with the other. She seems active...and is eating and drinking. But am I paranoid, or is she a little fluffy? I'm scared to lose another one. My heart is breaking.

My condolences for your loss Erin.
The passing of these little ones is always so hard but even more so when it is unexpected.
It is advisable that you take your other buddy to the vet for a complete check-up, just to be sure, nothing was passed on to her. It will put your mind at ease as well.

RIP Emerald.
