I owe you all an update on Kim. You've all been so sweet and kind with us. I couldn't tell you the other day, as my hubby was in Hong Kong and I didn't want him to know from my blog and worry. Last week, Kim found herself all of a sudden between life and death. This was so unexpected, and honestly I had brought her to the vet to check a rash on her face and a cold.
I have been immediately sent to a clinic far away from where we are... they did tons of exams... I was forced to leave her there overnight. It was the very first time I left her, if not with my parents, and my heart was aching.
After your loving prayers and positive vibes, and medical help, I could bring her home and in 24 hours she showed an incredible improvement. She started to breathe normally again, after some days of very difficult breathing and cough (these symptoms happened to disappear literally in 15 minutes during the night, after I got up from bed, fanned air towards her and told her we all love her so much and many people had sent love and prayers her way). Then she fell asleep quietely by my side, and the next morning she was able to stand by herself (she wasn't unable to in the past few days). She ate voraciously and took the medicines.
There are different opinions about my sweet furbaby- doctors don't give me hope, while I believe her life is eternal, as a beutiful idea of God. So she will always be with me, no matter what happens to our material bodies.
Kim and I have such a special bond, our souls are intertwined, if anyway possible. She is so important to me, she has given me so much love and has helped me through the darkest and scariest period of my life. I'll really be forever grateful I had her by my side.
As hubby and I are empty nesters, she truly is my "baby"... I won't tell you how wonderful, good, obedient, sweet, funny she is, because you can imagine just looking at my pictures. I won't tell you how much we love her as you can see that as well.
I want to show you these photos taken some years ago. My hubby wanted her to see the sea, and off we went to France to spend some days in beautiful Cote d'Azur. Even if she's a Golden Retriever, she hates water and wants her paws to always stay dry! I keep telling she's a "living room" doggie :) These shots hold such special memories for us!
I won't hide you that I've cried for 24 hours when she was at the clinic. Now that she's better and here with me, I have realized I must stay strong and serene for her. She feels what I do feel, so I must not be scared and never let my hope vanish nor my inner light dim.
" Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times... if one only remembers to turn on the light."
Thanks for being there for us!
