Sometimes words fail me when I need them the most, yet at this moment I don't feel that I can convey what my heart wants to say. In our life we encounter many people, brought together as our stories unfold, and often we do not know what a gift the presence of these people are, until, well, moments like these. Tears streamed down my face as I read the comments left for us this morning, my heart felt a tenderness so pure that I was overwhelmed with emotion. Thank you seems such a inadequate word, yet it is all that I can think of to say. Blossom is still holding her own, I sat with her all night, dozing off briefly this morning for a few hours, waking in time for our appointment with Craig, Blossom's vet. During the night she drank water and also the tuna juice that I am making for her. She has had a blood sample taken, and Craig, bless his heart was still fairly optimistic that the problem may not be serious, although her heart rate has increased slightly. I have brought her home, and she now rests in front of the fire, peaceful by all accounts, no signs of distress. I know that she is old, and after spending many hours holding her, crying and telling her that if she wishes to go then that is okay, at one stage I had to apologize as her head was saturated with my tears. Little actions mean so much at times of grave illness, even now she prefers to snuggle next to me, head resting on my hand, a act of her love towards me. We are waiting now to hear from the Craig, at which point we may have a decision to make, but until then I have many hours left with my beautiful angel, and not one of them will be taken for granted..
