Soda's Back!!!! (And he's better than ever!)

I got Soda back from the vet yesterday. We still have to give him medicine and vitamins, which is really funny. His digestive system works normally again, and he doesn't sit hunched over anymore like he used to. We have to keep him in a small cage, sicne we have to catch him to give him his meds, but he'll be okay. We bought him a cage for $15 at our LPS. It's so small, and he always wants to escape and be with Pony and it breaks my heart. We put the cages next to each other though, and they both stick their beaks through the cage bars and chattter away.
We also think we've figured out why Soda is so small. Since he couldn't digest his food right, he wouldn't get enough vitamins and minerals, so that would've stunted his growth. It wasn't our fault that Soda had that problem, his lack of iodine, since we gave him vits. and the whole deal. It just accumulated, I guess.
I just want to thank everyone that helped me with Pony and Soda. You guys are awesome!!!

Thanks guys.
The vet called and said that Soda could go in the main cage with Pony today! No more medicine! Pony and Soda immediately started chatting with one another, with their heads close together. It looked like they were sharing their secrets and what had happened when they had been apart. It was so cute!
