It has been heartbreaking to lay with her listening to her cry all night. There were two, one hour patches of sleep from our sheer exhaustion I think. Hopefully the vet will have suggestions today to assist me in easing her distress.
But even within a rough night and the heartbreak of my crying fur-baby, there is gratitude to be found. I'm so grateful to have my Pippin back home with me. I'm grateful her surgery went as well as it could. I'm grateful to have today off to be with her. I'm grateful to be able to stay awake with her last night and lay next to her to comfort her. I'm grateful to know my own discomfort from laying on the floor all night will pass. And I'm grateful to know that her pain will be temporary as well.
What helps you find patience and inner strength? What do you do for your four-legged friend when it is not well?
May today bless all the fur-babies with health and ease of pain. May the simple pleasures be enough to rejuvenate us all. Have a beautiful day!
