A new day, a new journey
You have to start somewhere...
Many years ago, when I started veterinary school, my mother told me - "You should write down your stories and cases, so that someday you can write a book like James Harriot". Of course, being a 20-something, I disagreed -- MOTHER, nobody wants to hear those stories.
She was right. Several years later, here I am, wishing I had chronicled my cases and stories of human life, grief, happiness, and success for my own reading, and for others to understand the inside of the mind of a dedicated emergency veterinarian.
You have to start somewhere. Today is the day. I hope that someone, somewhere, understands the dedication, sacrifice, investment, and heart it takes to do my job.
