Default Possible Stroke

Does anyone have experience with their bird having and surviving a stroke?
Yesterday morning while I was washing the birds water cups I heard a thump. I walked into the bird room and Opie was flying erratically and bashing into walls, the ceiling and furniture as if he could not see. He ended up on the floor and when I picked him up he seemed sort of limp with very little grip to his feet. I thought perhaps he was stunned from hitting things so I placed him on my chest for a few minutes and then back in the cage. When I did that he fell off the perch. I immediately picked him up and put him in the carrier and took him right to the vet. The vet thinks he may have had a stroke. He is in the hospital and is a bit better today. He seems to be able to see but is still a little ataxic. He does not want to eat on his own so they are feeding him. He just turned one year old so he is not an old bird.
Has anyone had anything similar happen?
Thanks

Cody I'm sorry that this has happened to Opie. Fortunately, I don't have any experience on this topic. But I hope he recovers fully. We will be praying for him.

I'm so sorry to hear that Opie may have suffered a stroke.
Did the vet give you any indication of what the prognosis for recovery is?

I will be sending lots of healing energy, positive thoughts and prayers for little Opie.

I think the vet is reserving his opinion on prognosis until he sees if there is continued improvement in the next day or two. I went to visit Opie this afternoon, and he did look better than yesterday when I took him in but you could tell that something is not quite right. What is really sad is that his best buddy Bebe is calling for him. Although there are other birds with him Opie and Bebe are best buddies. Last night Bebe went to sleep in Opie's spot, it was really heartbreaking to see.
Thanks for the prayers.

When Opie returns home, is there any way you can house just Opie and Bebe together in a cage?

I'm so sorry to hear about Opie and send him lots of positive healing energy. I didn't know that they could have a stroke so young. There's no chance that it was a seizure or convulsion, right?

The next few days are important, and Opie will be well taken care of at the vet. It is a good sign that he looked better today than yesterday. Hopefully he willl be back home with Bebe in no time.

I'm sorry to hear about this fright with Opie! I'm praying that he heals and is back with Bebe soon. Karma to you for getting prompt vet help for your budgie!

Yes, I am planning on that, I already have the cage set up.

I'll ask the vet about that, I don't know how you would determine the difference unless the seizure or convulsion was witnessed.
