Quick Update

Just a few pictures to show what has been going on in these parts. Samson disappeared Sunday afternoon and I was broken hearted but also not giving-up on his return. Then, this morning while I was exercising, I noticed a flash of white go across the living room window. It was Samson! He had returned from his own Incredible Journey. And he looked it. My heart was rejoicing that he had returned but it was also breaking because he looked so pitiful. He was barely able to walk and I could see the pain in his eyes. Nora and I wrapped him up in a towel and took him to the vet. They gave him a couple of shots of something and confirmed that he had probably been hit by a car or hurt by a larger animal. They said if he wasn't better by the morning that we need to bring him back in to be seen.  He's perked up a teeny, tiny bit but mostly, he's still pretty lethargic. He did venture outside for about ten minutes this evening and Nora got so excited. "He's walking, Mama! He can walk again! He's not sick anymore!"
I didn't tell her about the blood I found under his tail area on the laundry room floor. :(

While we were outside watching Samson, the girls and I walked around the property and picked some wildflowers for the hearth. They make the living room smell glorious!

Night y'all.
