I apologize because this is gonna be a long post, but I’m hoping that some spare hive hugs may just help in this situation.
today started off like any old day. I had plans to see my Fiance. (Squee!!! I hadn’t seen him in almost 2+weeks). We had plans to run some errands, and to get some wedding related things done as well, (which still boggles my mind that our wedding is only a mere 4 months away… I remember when it was 24 months away). But I digress….
Now, one thing my Fiance. is all about; is being on time. So color me shocked when I got a text saying he’d be late & it was a long story. So I’m eating lunch with my parents after cell phone shopping with my technologically challenged mother, and I called to tell him to pull down their drive-way since we were meeting at their house. I of course ask the normal, “where are you & what happened?”
What the Fiance told me broke my heart, and I let out a massively audiable gasp. That was so loud my parents stopped eating lunch & talking and begin to listen to the FI’s and my conversation.
Some how, my FI’s father ended up backing over their dog, with their truck. My Fiance told me he was working at their house and suddenly heard the worst noise ever. It was my Fiance.’s dog howling in pain, and my fiance’s parents rushed their beloved pooch to their vet.
Luckily, there was no internal bleeding, or broken bones. However, my FI’s dog won’t place any weight on his front paws. At this point in time, we’re not sure what all that means. Its possible that the pooch is just banged up, and tired and just wants to rest. Which would be the best option. (The option that myself, Fiance and both of our parents are praying for). The not so good option is that it could be nerve damage and depending on how bad the damage is, my FI’s beloved pooch of 12 years may have to cross over to the rainbow bridge. For now, the vet’s observing the pup, and taking a wait and see approach. All I can do is hope and pray that my FI’s furry kid makes it through.
Even writing this now, brings me to tears. I have that horrible lump in my throat, with my eyes watering. My Fiance. much like myself is an animal lover. And it kills me that he’s in pain & worrying about his baby, much like I worried when my furry kid was having her seizures. The worst part is that there is nothing I can do to take that pain away. Or to help ease the worry. And my heart goes out to my FI’s dad, who I know is just beside himself right now. And to my Fiance.’s poor mom. Who I know wracked with worry. It hurts that the people I care and someone I love is hurting and I can’t do anything to make it better.
So if you made it this far, and you have some spare hive hugs, please send them our way.
