Today was sort of an awful day. I worked from home so that I could have privacy for a meeting. We woke up as normal, let the dogs out, and uncovered the birds cages.
I was upstairs in my room answering emails when I noticed Leeloo was agitated. Magnus was under my chair and I noticed his head was moving in an odd manner and he looked generally unsteady. I pushed my chair back and he fell over on his side. I carried him downstairs to Ian and we sat with him through what I am pretty sure was a stroke. We’ve scheduled a vet appointment and he recovered almost fully after about an hour. I would estimate the worst of the episode lasted about 20 minutes.
There were some other personal things that cropped up and everything happening at once today made my mood pretty low.
Then, this evening, I came out onto the porch for some air to some of the most beautiful light and color from the sun setting over the Rockies. Sometimes we need a reminder we’re part of a glorious bigger picture.
