    I did not know about the fall. Wishing you a speedy recovery. Sounds very painful.

    I have been recovering from a cycling fall since Sept. I badly broke my hip and have had to learn to walk again. It makes one very thankful for very small things. I hope to be fully recovered by December.

    Wish you and your flock good health. You have always been so helpful to others and I wish the same good karma back to you. Hugs

    Thanks so much for the well wishes and guidance, everyone. He is a tough cookie and holding up today. He still looks very uncomfortable, but I do not see any additional decline. I will report back once we see a vet hopefully tomorrow. Everyone's well wishes means a lot. I joined AA when Max came into my life 6 years ago this month. He and Charlie are my children. Thanks.

    Ouch! poor you! I hope your pain has lessened. Mine suddenly quit being so painful last night and i was elated not to have that level of excruciating pain. Hey, an audio baby monitor might be a good purchase for you. It alerts me to night incidents. I always keep a backup on the shelf and just ordered this. Google Express I hope it's a good one. I got 20%off with the code SUMMERFUN.

    Tumeric is an anti-inflammatory and I've had avian vets prescribe it for that.

    I appreciate that. While I am not 100%, I am doing fairly well now. I have been determined to get as close to 100% as I can.

    Hopefully my Maximus will be 100% again too.

    And if you have your own prescription of celebrex, often prescribed for arthritis or any inflammatory condition - that is prescribed for parrots also.
    In an emergency you may decide to share. It is usually mixed up in a sugar solution at a particular concentration and given per weight of bird.
    Tumeric is a bit safer as it would be less likely to overdose, and fewer side effects.

    Please use caution with valerian, it has side effects. I’d probably use the turmeric. You can make a turmeric tea.

    I just put tumeric in another omlette. Hope it gives even a little relief. Glad he is eating.

    Thanks for additional well wishes and guidance. Can't wait for 7 am tomorrow morning to call the avian vet.

    Hi, thanks for asking. He doesn't seem to have anything broken, but he is badly bruised. He has fresh meloxicam now. I am very relieved my vet was available to see him today. He will be ok. He needs time to heal and I hope the meloxicam gets him comfortable soon. He is eating and able to get around his cage despite his discomfort.

    I appreciate everyone's guidance and support.

    Sorry for the delay in reporting back but I couldn't get on this site for awhile.

    Great that your vet could see him today and that it isn't broken.
    Give him a kiss from me and tell him he has the best mom! ♥
