Black Dahlia's Big Move!

Postby Rosaboobie » Wed Jul 13, 2016 3:27 am

Well, the day of Black Dahlia's big move to Virginia has arrived. She is going to live with her son and DIL, and I just hope that everything goes smoothly without a hitch. Her 2 beloved birds are travelling with her in the cabin, and to say that BD is apprehensive about today is an understatement. She will be incommunicado for a few days whilst she settles in and gets her PC set up. Drac and I have waited for this day a very long time, and I will just be glad when it is all over for everyone concerned.

Funny, I was just thinking about her last night and wondering how her move was going. So glad she will be where she'll have some support and, hopefully, better medical care! The birds are in for a shock! Is her trailer moving with her?

No, the son wants to keep the trailer there as a holiday home, Diat.

Thanks for the update, I've been thinking of her also. I'm glad to know she now has some backup.

Thank you for letting us know, RB. It's going to be a long trip for her and probably a wrench mentally as well, but I'm glad it's finally happening. Let us know when you hear more.

These days when she is incommunicado are going to be just awful for me and Rosaboobie! I was praying that she wouldn't have a nervous break-down first! She is giving up all her independence and moving to the "unknown." Both are WAY out of her comfort zone. But her health has been deteriorating so rapidly the last couple of years and the health care she was getting in California was just dreadful. Although she will be giving up her complete independence, she was no longer ABLE to be independent. At least now she will have advocates for her in all of her issues instead of struggling to deal with them on her own.

Until we hear that she and her birds are safe and sound, Rosaboobie and I will still be anxious!

So will we be too - so please let us know when she is safely there and settled into her new home! Holding thumbs all goes well for her and the birds (and her son and daughter-in-law - no little thing, taking this on their shoulders).

I received an email from Donna's son prior to them boarding the plane, but I have not heard from him since. The non-communication is really getting to me now, cos we dont know how Donna has come through all this, and all this upheaval just prior to her 92nd Birthday, and also how her precious birdies have done................ The suspense is absolutely killing me!

I remember being in this very same situation when Donna ended up in the ER, and Drac and I had no contact with her then either.

And I have just gotten an email from her! Yay! Whoopie! They all made it just fine. She said everyone was so very kind and although she is still stressed and nothing is really set up yet, she is safe and sound.

WHEW!

That is such great news! I can understand a bit of BD's apprehension. When my Mom moved in with me, it was only a few miles and the move could not have gone more easily. I got her used to the idea by having her over for long weekend "sleepovers." Although she hated moving out of her home, she now can't imagine being anywhere else but here. BD moved clear across the country, but knowing that she is among people who love her and who want her there...she'll soon realize it's the best place for her as well. Thank you for updating us and sharing the good news!

I received an email from Donna this morning also. I dont think she can believe that her aged birds survived this long journey, one of which is 22 years old!
Her son and DIL are netting their porch so that the birds can have some freedom, as they have been used to. How very kind of them to think of her birds at a time when all of them are having to make so many changes in their lives.
