"ANOTHER TURNING POINT, A FORK STUCK IN THE ROAD. TIME GRABS YOU BY THE WRIST, DIRECTS YOU WHERE TO GO…"
Why feature this brilliant song by Green Day on our Guinea Pig blog? Because we wish this for you. Things happen. Life changes. This morning the piggies had such a fun Runabout, almost like old times.
"TIME GRABS YOU BY THE WRIST, DIRECTS YOU WHERE TO GO…"
It took me back to the hospital by ambulance, heart rate dangerously low, spiked a fever, weight plunged to 85 lbs. with literally no muscle mass, caught yet another infection, immune system compromised…the superfood my naturopath gave me is unfortunately also feeding multiple infections which no longer respond to treatment. The doctor at the hospital finally confessed that if we don't get a handle on it...
"SO TAKE THE PHOTOGRAPHS AND STILL FRAMES IN YOUR MIND…HANG IT ON A SHELF IN GOOD HEALTH AND GOOD TIME…"
This is what PandaPigSanctuary Blog means to us, to me.
We don't know if I will get well or Life will grab us by the wrist, direct us where to go…it's unpredictable, which is why I so love this song, it's so true, so real, raw: And beautiful.
We have faith that whatever happens is right and meant to be.
POI and Sami Cat moved in while I was in hospital to care for the piggies and they're staying on to care for me, too. After a crushingly difficult day at work - and we're many bus rides away now, living up here - the sacrifices POI (my special "Person of Interest" who won't let me use his name yelling out: "I don't want to leave a Cyber Footprint!") the sacrifices he makes day and night for us- God love him! No way anyone who scrolls back a few years will ever guess who this noble soul is, heh-heh! He will remain by our side. As you have.
He and two other caregivers plus the Transitions to Hospice Team are tiding me over, enabling us to stay in our new home. I am determined to remain here as one family and we'll learn as we go.
No, we will not be returning to Bellingham, so will take these photographs and still frames in our mind...from our years there together with you...and we will hang them forever in our hearts in good health and good time…and perhaps return to blog again.
"FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH, IT WAS WORTH ALL THE WHILE…" Please listen to the lyrics, to understand how we feel.
I am too weak to keep up the blog now...
"IT'S SOMETHING UNPREDICTABLE BUT IN THE END IS RIGHT. I HOPE YOU HAD THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE."
We sure have!
Thank you for sharing yours with us, we love you, every single reader, you have helped the pigs and I have the time of our life.
This song's for you!
