Guess who called me yesterday afternoon!!!!!
No it wasn’t Pelly…….it was the girl (Michelle) who picked up Pelly the other day calling to let me know how he was doing.
He still isn’t using his foot, if it is still that way on Monday they will x-ray it.
Pelly was given several kinds of medicine, some to treat his lice. They were not only on his skin but in his mouth. We had seen them and read about it online and learned it is very common in pelicans. Michelle said they could really see an improvement in him (they are calling Pelly a boy too) as far as the lice.
He is inside, has a heating pad and gets 4 of the blue gill and some of the other fish we sent with him once a day.
He must feel like he is on a diet after the way I was feeding him! He has tried to poke his beak at them and has also been talking to them. I laughed and said he was trying to tell them he wanted more food as that is what he would do to me when hungry.
They already have a pen outside for him to use when his foot is better and I can call next week to see how he is. I am very thankful that they are helping Pelly and I hope they are enjoying him as much as we did.
I wonder what Pelly would have thought if he had seen all the Canadian geese show up! There were thirty of them……it is difficult now to tell the babies from the parents. Seeing them really made me think of Pelly and miss him. Then a beer truck went by and I was thankful that Pelly was in a safe place and being cared for.
Closeup……beautiful but not Pelly.
Today I am going to Hiawatha, IA to the Nolting Longarm Quilting Machine Open House with my neighbor. There will be demonstrations and lots of fun and prizes!! I can’t wait! Tomorrow I am hoping to do a update post on using my FitBit…..I love it!
