one of Lil Ms. Bee's wings was drooping to the ground
and caught her to have a closer look. I opened up her
good wing to get a good feel for how it should feel and
then slowly and gently extended her drooping wing. I
only opened it a little ways before realizing it felt
broken. I quickly scooped her up into a pet carrier,
called our vet and headed out the door.
at the vet confirmed that she has a broken wing in THREE
places! OH NO! All of them at her "wrist." Looks like
Marvin got a little excited about his love for her and
accidentally stepped on her wing.
vet splinted her wing for her and she will go back
Tuesday to check and make sure it's still in place and
then she'll have surgery on Friday to pin the bones.
She'll need to stay in the house for 3 weeks after
surgery and then she can go back outside in her own
private area (where Marvin can't reach her) for another
3-4 weeks after that.
fractures in her Ulna and one dangerous break in her
Radius. We're lucky that didn't hit the nearby artery.
