As I said before John, I am so sorry for your unimaginable loss.

You are family here and have changed so many lives teaching what you have learned about birds. That knowledge will always be with you so keep finding time to check in here.

John this is heartbreaking news. I am so sorry to hear this.

You have shared so much knowledge with the bird community I hope as time helps lesson your grief that you will continue to share your knowledge with everyone.

Reaching out to you both in this time of such a painful and unexpected event to convey love and concern. Wish i lived closer to give you support in person.
Please know there is a great deal of respect AA members have for you. We are grieving with you and your wife. :grouphug2:

I am speechless... from everything I have seen, you deserve the respect members here have for your advice, and your birds were lucky to have a home with you. Sometimes there is no amount of love or care, no measure we can possibly take to outmaneuver death. It isn't fair.

I am so sorry for your losses. I cannot imagine the pain of everything you are going through. Their souls touches many here on the avenue, they will be remembered. I hope they fly free together.

Thank you everyone. I hear each one of you. Right now my heart is broken. I wake up on a fog and I go to bed in a fog.

I will always be a member. Perhaps in time there will be something positive to contribute.

Just take your time to heal and grieve how you feel we are all here for you

I hope your wife and you are getting support you both need through health care professionals as well I know how challenging it can be
And I just want to say you are doing amazing job balancing it all

John we all have different timing to grieve and heal from tragedy. Some time the process is so slow but if you rush it doesn't work. Take care of you, take care of your wife take all the time you need, we will always be here when you are ready. )))))))))Hugs((((((((

I have no words.

The trauma of an injury to your spouse and then .... this loss of your feathered friends? God be with you my friend. I know how MC's loss affected me. Please reach out to a therapist in your area. I know your time is limited but they can do zoom calls too.

:sadhug:

I have no clue if this is the right little picture but put your left hand on your right shoulder.... your right hand on your left shoulder and squeeze.... and know that the folks on this forum would give you a hug if we could get to you.

We care.

I'm so very sorry... This is devastating :sorrow: You've been such so helpful and insightful to me and this forum. I also love learning about your flock. How you saved Tika and Amanda and transform their lifes for the better. I'm so heartbroken for you. We all know how much you loved and cared for your birds.

I hope your wife feels better and continue to improve. I wish you and your wife all the best. Take care of yourself John. You're definitely family here!

I'm truly sorry for your loss, John. It is awful that this happened, and terrifying that it could happen to anyone. My sincerest condolences.
I hope you are able to take a small slice of comfort in knowing how your birds had wonderful lives with you and that you gave them something they did not have before they met you; love and respect.
Sending positive healing thoughts to your wife.
Please don't stop checking in. You better the lives of all birds whos owners read AA and get advice from you.
