Saying Goodbye

Working in the vet field you hear a lot of a certain thing. “I could never do this because of…the euthanasia.” Except that the euthanasia isn’t the hardest part. Last week my grandma died. She was 93. She’d been mostly immobile and suffering from dementia for a while. I got to hear lots of stories […]

Personal Narrative
