Lessons in Life’s Not Fair
Loss in varying degrees, pain remains the same
Lessons in life’s not fair
I hold you as you hold her
Her body weak and listless
You blame yourself, I’m desperate to refute
Life’s like that sometimes, the point is moot
Your pain sears my soul
Her frail ginger body in your hands
You think it’s all your fault, when it really is not
Life’s just not fair sometimes
And we should not entertain
Until it’s a for sure deal
She can still get better
Sarah Jane had a rare and extreme adverse reaction to her vaccines. She had to be taken to the emergency animal hospital for treatment. She had stopped moving around, she had trouble opening her eyes and she starting drooling, indicating having trouble swallowing.
There, they gave her shots of steroids and Benadryl and said we’d have to watch her for the next twelve hours. No promises, no guarantees. Watch and wait and hopefully your beloved pet will make it through the night.
So far so good. She’s eating, purring, if not moving around as much as we’d hoped.
