Project 52 – Week 17

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.

    Oh Sheri…I have tears in my eyes. Sending lots of healing energy to Sarah Jane, and hugs to your whole family.

    Thank you so much Shady. Kitty isn’t quite out of the woods yet, she’s still vomiting and slow moving but there is improvement and we’re trying to stay positive. Poor Daughter…blaming herself…broke my heart.

    Oh I am so sorry to read this! We’ve had a similar situation this past month with one of our beloved cats. Do hope that Sarah Jane is ok now (am working my way through your posts, so shall soon find out I guess).
