Well, Buddy is still staying with us, strongly I might add. I'm quite glad we caught this at all, much less in time to do anything about it. We aren't going to Dr. J anymore, she was too "wait and see" and not really proactive enough. I love her for her help in the past, but it just wasn't working anymore. The Dr. we're seeing now for Buddy is amazingly straight forward and proactively trying to figure out what was going on. She gave Buddy his one exam all over, and thoroughly, and she had a diagnosis. And the needs she gave him actually did something other than torture him with every dose. It's actually helping him. For how long I'm not sure, but at least for now he's more at ease when he's breathing. More updates later. Thank you everyone for your kind words and thoughts and prayers.

Hey everybirdie! So Buddy had his follow up appointment yesterday. Dr. Hughes was thrilled with his progress! She even went as far as to say that he was a miracle bird. She even dropped his lasix dose to 1x per day instead of 2x. Which makes it easier on the both of us! I just hope he continues to improve. I'm to call her back on Friday to update her on his condition, and possible blood work, now that he's stronger. All day today he's been bouncing around and peeping like crazy, and scraping on his cuttlebone, and all the normal budgie stuff. Our home had a little hiccup with or cat Jewel this morning that ended in a vet trip, also resulting in some very confused budgies. Everyone is ok, thank goodness. But that's a story for another thread. Anyways, Buddy is good for now, and so is everyone else as far as we know.

Oh my gosh Kristen, that’s great news! :D

Hopefully Buddy really is your little miracle bird like the vet said, and that he has a longer life ahead of him than was originally expected!
