Me: What a dreadful day. I don’t think I slept at all last night worrying about her.
Nell: Harriet is in capable hands. Richard is keeping a close eye on her.
Me: Fortunately Kev noticed the bleeding and acted quickly.
Nell: Yes, and Richard and his team of vets were able to operate at once.
Me: Dave hasn’t left my side.
Nell: I know. He was very sick last night. It’s the worry.
Me: I’ve never seen Poppy like this.
Nell: Yes, she can’t rest until Harriet comes home. She just sits by her bed.
Me: Thank goodness for Mutley’s calm presence.
Nell: He has seen so much in his life. He knows when to keep quiet and wait.
Nell: Kev just spoke to Richard and she is alert this morning and has had breakfast. We have to ring again later but it is looking good.
Me: I just want her home, Nell.
Nell: We all do.
