|K on the morning of her diagnosis|
|Shyla's eyes are windows into a beautiful soul|
|As I trembled, this girl began showering me in kisses.|
Some of you might remember that K had a serious bone infection and toe amputation one year before her OSA diagnosis in the same limb. So, I feel like every option on the radiologist's list is a rehash of the veterinary nightmare that K had for the last 18 months of her life. But, I also remember that those 18 months were precious and filled with love. K rose above her veterinary challenges to live joyfully. I know that Shyla will too... but I hope that the challenges are minor rather than major.
I know that today is "See Beautiful" Friday. Regardless of the circumstances, Shyla is beautiful on the outside and beautiful deep in her soul. Even if my worst fears are realized (which I still believe will not happen), I have no regrets. Shyla is a true gift.
|Every day, I "see beautiful" in Shyla.|
