My little friend has had a rough time lately–she’s been in the veterinary clinic, except for a brief stint at home, since last Thursday night. This morning, she’s having a sonogram and then she needs to go to her regular vet and we’ll see from there. We are all hoping she can come home after Dr. Bauer gives the OK. All this came about, we think, because of her Cushings medicine–it just made her almighty sick.
Yes, this has been stressful, but there’s a lot to be thankful for, too. Since the night I fell in love, completely by accident, with a beagle puppy in a pet store window–January 6, 2000–she’s been a dear, dear friend. She’s lavished me with love and devotion, made me laugh, provided comfort in bad times and good.
So today I will write–that is my solace as well as my joy–and I will wait, and I will pray.
That’s the news.
