He went on an anti-fungal medication again as well as an second anti-fungal applied topically. His surgery was scheduled and we kept him as comfortable as we could. He was still active and quite chipper, though his discomfort was obvious as he continually rubbed his beak and readjusted his lower mandible.
Today he was anesthetized and his beak was dremmeled back until there was no infection left, then cauterized again. This time the removal was a bit more aggressive in hopes that we could kill the infection for good. His beak is very short and he will have to learn how to eat with his new beak, but tonight he did munch on some banana. We're hoping the double anti-fungal and the removal of the entire infected area will beat this and he will be able to move on with his life.
He is such a love and we only want the best for him. His sweet personality should continue to be shared with many more and we're doing our best to make that happen. Hang in there little buddy, we all love you so very much!
