Well, Thursday night I felt no pain. The shots consisted of cortisone and a numbing agent. Friday I hurt again -- numbing agent worn off. Today is better so the cortisone must be kicking in. I have high hopes!

I hate being short. African grey thinks he can boss me around on his highest perch. Get bit whenever I ask him to step up. Please help me, any suggestions?

    Use a branch to pick him up. I'm short too, and that's how I get Chewy down from high places. Good luck!

Well, I got my shots in my back. Yes, shotS -- plural. I'm still feeling some pain, but it's not the sharp stabbing pain I was having. We'll know more in a week. Apparently this is going to be a long term thing. I'm hoping I don't have to go back for more shots after being on that bus for a week.

I really feel bad for this poor crow. He was out again today to see if he could get any seed the others have thrown to the ground. He was, once again, chased off by a couple of blue jays this morning. I know they can be little pests, but come on! Chased off by the little birds?

    It's always surprised me that the big crows can be intimidated so easily by the smaller birds. They may be big and look imposing, but crows are on the timid side.

23 years ago at 1:16 in the morning I was blessed with the most beautiful baby girl. Happy birthday Amber! I love you and am so proud of the woman you've become.

I just love watching birds. We had some stale tortillas and instead of throwing them away, we gave them to the wild birds. I usually tear the bread/tortillas up in little pieces so they are more manageable for the birds. Jerry just throws them out and lets them fight over it. Well, there was this huge crow that was just about salivating over those huge tortillas. There were also several smaller birds. The smaller birds wouldn't let the crow get close to the tortillas. Every time it got near o...

Woo hoo! I have an appointment to get a shot in my back! Hopefully it will take the pain away and let me get back to work! I just have to make it through the next week and a half.

Well, gee, thanks Doc. You increased my pain meds and now my boss won't let me work. Guess I'll be off the rest of this week and all of next week at least. Unpaid. The bright point, if I want to look for a silver lining, is that I will be almost if not completely pain free. *sigh*
