Wide Awake



This song resonates with every fiber of my being at the moment:


Sometimes things in life happen to us that we would never expect. They come out of left field like a dump truck, run you over, and don’t hit the brakes to see if you survived or are even okay for that matter. This is my life right now. I am okay, or I will be. No need to send me a thousand emails or private messages, please. There are just some things people have to deal with alone. This is one of those things and definitely one of those times. 

I don’t have the answers for what happened. I’m not sure I ever will. My heart aches and my soul is on fire.  However, I refuse to let this define me. I refuse to succumb to the sadness.

The anger.
The pain.

I choose to be happy because we all have to make choices. 

I choose to not let this or anything else stand in my way. 

Am I being cryptic? Yes, because what happened to me is just that, it happened to me. This is my fight. 

I plan to win.

Hiatus Over & Why I Was Gone So Long

I am going to sum up my hiatus with one adorable picture:

No, I wasn't just distracted by his cuteness. This little dude suffered a terrible spinal injury while being micro-chipped. No one was at fault. The accident was simply a freak accident. Tragic, but rare and totally a freak thing. Surgery was done and I can say he is recovering well. But, his healing process is a long one and I have never worked with or rehabilitated a partially paralyzed animal before. This is a first for me and I am learning so much.  My shelter is so lucky to have such an amazing and talented vet staff.

I also want to thank the human mom of Waverly McTinybeans for all her advice and taking the time to give it. I know she is a super busy lady and I appreciated every tip.

I have spoken to multiple vets, RVT's and watched every youtube video I could find to help give this guy the best physical therapy I am able. He starts acupuncture sessions next week and little by little he makes progress. His left si…

#Writemotivation Week 1 Update

It is that time again! I missed March =(, but I am back with a vengeance for May! Here are my goals for this month:

I have been fostering these two adorable house panthers since they were two weeks old. At around four weeks of age I started to noticed something wrong with the little male's left eye.

I contacted my foster coordinator who had me bring him in so our in house vet could take a look at him. She was a bit baffled at what could be causing it so we tested him for various illnesses/cat diseases and they all came back negative. At four weeks old there isn't a lot we could do except wait and see what happened and how the eye developed. After another week I could tell he didn't seem to have vision in that eye and slowly the entire eye globe started to swell. Well, I woke up last Tuesday morning to this:
The vet had me bring him back in and it was apparent the eye would need to be removed. We did not know if it could be a tumor or glaucoma or what the heck the poor little dude had going on. The only issue was that he was tiny and only 1.5 lbs. Typically it isn't that great to do …
