Sounds like everything is getting a little smoother. I am so glad to hear things are getting better for you.
my thoughts are with you...
: Godae has been quite active this morning, he has been all over his cage, I woke up and he was on the top sniffing around, Anitra, my middle daughter was keeping a eye on him, so he wouldn't fall. He has adjusted to his loss of sight well, altho I do believe he does have a little sight, I think he can see shadows, I also do know that he is relying on his sense of smell alot more now than before, he is always sniffing, and walking around with his head towards the sky. He ate well this morning, I am no longer having to put the syringe in his mouth to give him his food, I still use it, but I just put it by his nose and he licks the food off, kinda like the concept of the water bottle. He took another stab at eating a mealie this morning, he put it in his mouth, but didn't bite him, so we will try agian later...
: Godae seems to know the difference between night and day, I am waking him up to feed him and he is "grumpy" during the day when I do this, now at night when it is feeding time he is way active, just like before all this...so I do belive that his interal clock works well!!!
: I am still hopefull that Godae will make a full recovery, I do think that he is one tough little glider!!
