A Short Rhymed Poem

In The Clear

by Debra White

We got some longed-for news, today;
Our Molly's in the clear!
She's not been well these last few weeks,
we'd feared the end was near.

We found a lump upon her leg,
she found her walks a drag.
She went right off her food and then
her tail ran out of wag.

So many visits to the vet
to try and make her well.
Biopsies, xrays, many tests -
The waiting has been hell.

We've fed her up, we've given meds
and lots of love and rest.
We've hoped and prayed she'd be ok -
Today we have been blessed

with happy news, the bestest news!
The lump is not a threat
and Molly will be better soon.
She's lots of life left yet.



We have been so worried about our beautiful 5yr old English Springer Spaniel, Molly. We honestly thought we were going to lose her - she was lethargic, off her food and so very sad - very unlike our usually-boisterous girl.
Finding a lump on her back leg really scared us.
The vet has told us that the lump is a build up of soft tissue and fluid and has been brought on by arthritis in her joint.
She has some anti-inflammatory medication for now and may need an operation in the future.
Happy to report that she is back to her happy self (and so are we!)
