Today about 11:00AM I'll know more after the necropsy results come back. It's believed she has been battling leukemia. I chose not to put her though a bone marrow biopsy a couple of months ago.

Denise,

I don't post much or even get online a whole lot any more, but wanted to take a second to let you know that Danny and I are thinking about you. We both remember Foo when she was "zombie bird" unable to make a decision. We met a vacant creature that was medicated into oblivion to keep her from chewing herself apart.

We watched her wake up, learn to play and have opinions. She made noise, started talking and became a diva. There was the bittersweet moment of when she was well enough to be at the rescue and we let her leave our foster home to find a real home. We remember when we heard she went home with you.

She belongs with you - now and forever. She loves you and you love her. We know you gave her everything. We have watched from the side lines and saw her become a full blown, happy cockatoo. Please know that no one else ever loved her so much or gave her so much. We are heartbroken with you, but completely at peace with the fact that she went to the best home possible. You filled her time with you with joy and love. No one can ask for more, no one can give more.

Fly free sweet Foo. And peace to you Denise.

Denise,
I have not been here in a while and just read your post and can barely type through the tears. Foo was a special girl and you were her special love. Foo was not a too for the faint of heart. She was undoubtedly the most beautiful girl I had ever seen and she sucked me in very quickly. But we both came to realize I was not the person she wanted and I am so glad you two found each other. She was so lucky to have had a home with you and I know how much you loved her. I'll never forget the first time I saw her, a friend went with me who had never been around parrots and was a little scared of them. Foo ran across her lap on the couch and I wish you could have seen her face! She gasped and Foo looked at her like "whats wrong with you?" My friend will be so sad to hear this news, she still asks about the big pink bird. I know your heart is broken, so many of us have walked in your shoes but take comfort in knowing that Foo had a good life with you and was loved and was able to give love. you will see her again. My thoughts and prayers are with you now, you were lucky to have shared your life with such a special girl.
Kim

My heart is with you now. This is such a painful loss. Thank you for remembering my loss with Charlie. I know the heartbreak you are going through. Time will eventually ease your pain. I can now laugh and smile at all the things he did. Foofie was very lucky to have you

Oh Denise, I am just now seeing this, and I am so very sorry for your loss. Foofie was so loved in your home and I know she is smiling down on you now as she soars at the Rainbow Bridge. Rest in peace, precious girl and big hugs to your mama ((((Denise))))

A month ago today and we have no word on the necropsy.

Kim, thank you for sharing another gem of your experiences with Foo. I so appreciate them. I'm sorry for your tears as she was truly a 'love bird'. Thank you.

Annette, Thank you for your tender thoughts. Yes, Miss Foo was loved unconditionally only because that is what she gave. Bill and I were very blessed that she never chose one of us over the other.

Miss Foo will always be loved and missed.

I picked up the report Monday evening after jury duty and spent the evening sobbing. Had to go back for jury duty Tuesday, so when I got home I scanned the report so I could post it here. Well, I haven't figured out how to do that. I've tried copy/paste..well anyway it hasn't worked. I made copys and cut up the document so as to hide addresses, acct. numbers, phone numbers, etc. I rescanned so as to only have one page.
So, if one of you elite computer geeks wants to tell me how to do this I will get this information to you. Thanks.

Once again. I am so sorry but thank you for giving this beautiful bird the best life possible. She could not have had a better "flock". I have never seen an actual written necropsy result. Did your vet tell you if that was consistent with leukemia or some sort of liver disease? Was it a combination or did one exacerbate the other? If this is too painful to talk about, I can fully understand.

Foofie was very lucky to have landed with you!

I'm so sorry Denise! Based on my interpretation they were unable to determine the cause of the liver disease, but did comment that no viral pathogen was found. Thank you for sharing with us, Denise. Fly high Foo!!

Charlie, it has to do with something about the liver deteriorating it destroys the blood cells. It can give the impression of leukemia.

EM, we can only speculate that the quantity/time she was on antipsychotic meds. Their side effects are not benign. (per DVM)

A few more hours and it will be a year. You left a beautiful but very heavy footprint on a bunch of hearts. My heart goes out to Danny and Jennifer...your miracle workers....I know they are thinking of you too. You are truly unforgettable. Love you always.

I was thinking of her the other day and how ending up with you was such a wonderful turn of events for her. She really was something, I'm not sure I've ever seen another so beautiful. I think of her often, she gave me a run for my money, so to speak, she was quite smart and had me pegged the moment I walked through the door. I remember Danny holding her feet and swinging her upside down back and forth between his legs, I had never seen anything like that, she was a fun loving girl. Im just so glad she had such a loving home in the end, it will be a joyous day when we are all reunited with our loved ones waiting across that bridge.

I, we, have good days and bad, Winston asks for Bo and Riley still runs to the back door to see if Angel dog is there. They were Rileys two best buds in the house and hes having a little trouble making friends with the others and consequently underfoot a good bit. I relive Bo's last day a lot, second guessing my decision. Love never dies, I feel it everyday. Thank you for thinking of us.

These little angels stay with us forever in our heart. I know you still must miss her so much. I hope though that you still have some days when you can smile at a memory like I do with my little Charlie who has been gone almost three years. You just don't ever truly get over it. hugs to you
