21st Century Lesbian Trailer Trash

These are the mad musings of a middle aged woman, dyke, nurse, poet. I have a dog, a cat, a mobile home, and delusions of grandeur.

Maggie

My sweet dog is in the doggie hospital for the night, awaiting a battery of tests and receiving supportive care.

I came home tonight to find her lethargic, with a distended belly, and not drinking or passing urine. It isn't clear whether she is having an exacerbation of her disease or if she got something out of the trash that may be causing a blockage.

She looked so sad when I left her. I feel calm right now. Don't ask me why. Maybe I'm in denial. Or maybe I just believe that our time together is not yet finished.

While I was waiting, a young man rushed a seriously injured cat into the facility. He was driving home from work and saw 2 young women standing beside the road watching a cat thrashing and gasping for breath. They told him they weren't going to do anything because it wasn't their cat. So he snatched it up and drove it to the ER. The cat didn't make it. But I know that the young man will be blessed.

There are 2 kinds of people in the world. Those who care. And those who don't.

Say a little prayer for Maggie if you are so inclined.

My thoughts are with you and Maggie. I live in a house full of pets so I understand what it's like when one gets ill.
Have a restful weekend, too.

And good thoughts to that young man for doing what he did. I love critters, and like to think people understand just how special and a part of our lives they are.
