~ Jello one week after being hit on a highway by a truck ~ Weekly Photo Challenge ~ Change 6 ~

*angels were everywhere

*the young man who slammed on the brakes in his big utility truck, causing damage to the vehicle, but minimizing the impact on Jello,

*the runner who saw it happen and came to my side asking only, “how can I help you?”

*the resort owner, Darrell, who called the La Pine Animal Hospital, gave us directions, told them we were on the way and said “you can stay as long as you need to — on me.”

*Dr. ‘Gordon’ and staff, who provided immediate care and reparative surgery to the gaping wound on Jell0’s right side, and reattached her nose cartilage to her upper jaw.


they all loved her immediately — stepped up to save her

~ angels ~ people of exemplary conduct and virtue ~

how do you thank your angels?


with gentle touch
soft words of comfort
holding life close
with a promise
we can do this

and we are
almost there

 *With special thanks to Creighton, Kate, judi, Carolyn and all who have provided special care, thoughts and love to Jello and me as we have navigated this trauma.

    Wow, such a powerful story. I hope Jello is feeling her old self again soon! There are indeed angels among us!

      Thank you, Tina. Missy Jello is improving daily. She wanted to move about more today; taking it slow and easy she explored the back yard on her own, then rested on her blankets atop the living room sofa while I made herbal infusions in the kitchen. Glad you are back safely and I’m excited to see what you will post from your extensive visit to Scotland. (My paternal grandfather and grandmother emigrated from Aberdeen around 1910.)

  2. She is beautiful! We’re glad she’s doing better! 🙂

    Miracles abound around us. Angels, indeed.

    Precious little Jello! Thankful she is safe and mending. Miracles and yes, Angels, the miracle facilitators.
