help, please help.

Put kids to bed. Came in room to.find Bib lying on his side in cage. Wing stuck under leg.
Been really sick. Rang vet. Vet said let him settle.
Bob now holding head up on side of cage. Can't balance. Vet thinks he had a stroke. Told me stressing him now may kill him. But he looks so ill. Panting and stuff.
I'm heartbroken. I don't know what to do.
Home alone with kids in bed.
My.poor Bob:'(:'(:'(

Is he handleable at all?

Tbh at the moment the best you can do is get him somewhere safe where he can't injure himself further if he statrs thrashing about, keep him in a cage with one low down perch incase he chooses to perch during the night, give him a soft towel underneath, and a heat lamp, cover 3 sides of his cage. Offer him his favourite easy to eat treat in case he perks up. But try and keep him as stress free as possible.

Hope he improves.

He's had seizure.
His left side is crippled.
He's layed down on the cage floor.
The vet says he is 17 and I don't know what he was fed before I had him.
He said it is a stroke.
My poor baby.
I hope he isn't suffering.
I hope its a quick or recovery is quick.
It's not looking good.

Your doing all you can for him, just keep him nice and calm and somewhere warm.

Keeping you both in my thoughts x

I'm so sorry, I know how hard you have worked with him and how much you love him... I hope he gets better, but it doesn't sound good does it? Good luck to you both... Hugs

What a horrible situation really feeling for you Kate. I think people on this forum get to know each others birds too, so when something like this happens we all grieve with you. Honestly, I'm heart broken! But I can only imagine how you're feeling right now
