In The Mood

Posted on: Saturday 03/11/2017 05:26:25

Suffice it to say, it's been a rough night.

First, I am feeling less than cheery about yesterday's event, and pondering a nightmare from last night.

Then tonight, the family went through some ups and downs. After nine years of waiting on the list, my brother was going to get a new donor kidney tonight. He was at the hospital already being prepped when I was called. Then it fell through. Apparently, the donor had kidney failure for too long before they expired, so it couldn't get to my brother in time and became unusable for him. I feel awful for both my brother, and the would-be donor and their family.

Finally, I was listening to old song demos. An acoustic instrumental came on that I wrote for my old dog Cortes. It's titled Black after the color of his fur. I forgot that at the end of this particular recording, he actually barks, as if he knew I was playing his song. 

It was the wrong thing to hear at the wrong time. I've never gotten over his passing. I couldn't help somewhat of an emotional meltdown then. I hate falling apart like that, and making Bosco feel something was wrong.

Hoping for a better day tomorrow.

    I'm sorry, Don. Pet-related grief can kick you in the gut at any time, as I know from experience. /homepage
