This MondayMorningMindbreaker is maybe more of a hearttoucher 💛
Yesterday was a special day. We went to visit my boyfriend's aunt who suffers from ALS. She's above eighty years old and some time ago she announced that she wants to be euthanized soon.
I hadn't met her yet so we decided to bring her a visit. I expected someone with no life left, instead I found a beautiful, funny and smart lady, tiny at size and unable to move her arms.
I immediately took woman into my heart. She was so kind and interested but also had so much to tell!
When I went to the bathroom I felt a tear running down my cheek: I couldn't believe this maybe would be the last time we'd meet.
At the same time she seemed so peaceful about everything, and that also gave me peace.
Within only a few hours, this woman burned her place into my mind.
We have so much impact on each other in this world. To all of you guys: Never think you won't be missed, because you will.

Lately I noticed that many people trifle with the advice of putting horses to sleep, exspecially horses with laminitis.
Because of Palmyros laminitis I read a lot about diseases on the web and there are many owners who sketch the situations of their horses. Often shockingly the people imply the owners that they torture their horses and advice to put them down😳
Of cause in some cases this would be the right decision but how can people, who never saw the horse, advice such serious things?!
A few weeks ago I experienced this firsthand. I had a job interview at a vet and I described Palmyros health situation and mentioned that his laminitis started one year ago and is still not gone yet. Shockingly the vet said that I may think about putting him down because he is ill since such a "long" period of time😳 This is so crazy, he never saw Palmyro! Yes he walks lame, but he still has so much joy of living and likes to move, he even trots and sometimes canters in his big paddock together with Shari🐴
Besides laminitis is a lengthly process of healing anyway.
I'm sure an attentive owner knows when the horse looses his will to live and no one who never saw the horse in reality is qualified to advice an euthanasia. Not even a vet.
For certain no one who sees Palmyro in reality would advice an euthanasia!😊 .
