You never know how honestly frightening it is to imagine the concept of losing a loved one until your sitting in the waiting room awaiting test results. This afternoon this was an all to real reality when we had to rush my puppy to the emergency vet. I know many people will think that it is odd to call a dog a loved one but he is one of the things my husband and I love most in the world as we have no children of your own yet, he is like our baby, so sitting waiting in the treatment room after they had taken our little fur baby away, being able to hear him cry from the back room and being told we have to wait for the results, was honestly unimaginably difficult, and it got me thinking – how little we cherish the things we love until they are threatened.
The statement “you don’t know what you until it’s gone” is used in many scenarios like this, and honestly it is my true belief we take things for granted in life unintentionally- we are so used to having something its a shock to the system when its gone.
After today’s scare I am going to make a conscious effort to show appreciation for what I have and be sure to have a few extra cuddles, a few more minutes of playtime and a few more nights of letting my little fur monster sleep in the bed with us.
Have you ever had a medical scare with a loved one? It may not be your puppy but a family member or a friend?
If this is a reality to you right this minute I send you all the love and prayers I can – because nobody should have to feel that way and be alone❤
Thank you for reading and sharing in my personal moments
