It's been a rough week preparing for Roberta's
surgery. More than just getting all the things
prepared for her recovery, but also getting myself
mentally prepared. Praying surgery will save her
life understanding how complicated her operation
will be. I just love this little duck.
These moments are always the most difficult. Sitting
on the brink of what could be the edge of letting go
and hoping with all my might that she will fight her
way through this and be strong and recover.
I let Roberta swim on the pond all day yesterday and
I went out in the forest and collected a half of a
bucket of nightcrawlers for everyone--so many they
couldn't eat them all. I just wanted it to be a
great day for her, so that she might remember what
she is fighting for.
At 7:30 I walked all the other ducks off of the pond
and let Gulliver go out on the water with Berty. I
let them both swim together until they were finished
and ready to come off of the water on their own
accord. I took these photos of them:
Indeed, yesterday was great for Berty. I pray today
will be another great day for her, so she can come
back home to us again...
