The doctors had no answers. It was too soon for them to say if his situation was reversible or not. They did whatever they could, and it was now up to his body to fight the venom. The medication was going to help, however, it all depended on how strong Khan’s body was. This was not what Catherine was expecting to hear.
The doctors suggested Catherine returns the next day. There was not much for her to do there, and it was a time-will-tell kind of situation.
Suddenly, They Were a Family
At this exact moment, Khan became a part of their family. There were no ifs and no buts and no reasoning and no excuses. Catherine realized that this precious dog was sent to her, and she did not choose him randomly. Coincidence, yet again, had no room.
He was important to her just as much as Charlotte was and was willing to do whatever it took to ensure he was better. She was even willing to let him sleep on the couch. Charlotte was safe at home, however, Catherin was still troubled. Could you imagine the outcome of this incident if Khan was not there?
It Was Almost Too Much
Khan was moved into the emergency unit at the clinic, and a scene of grief and sorrow fell over Catherine. This was almost too much for her to handle, but she had to stay with her head above water. Catherine knew that she would not be at ease until her dog was out of danger.
Just thirty minutes after being in the emergency room, Khan was moved to a different ward. Then, the doctors who treated him came out to see Catherine.
She Could Only Hope for the Best
Catherine went through a few restless nights. Now, although she was relieved that Charlotte was safe and sound, she was worried about Khan, however, there was nothing she could do. Not at this stage, anyway.
After a restless night, Catherine was getting ready to go back to the clinic and see how the night was for Khan. She was expecting the worst but, deep inside, was hoping for the best.
So Many Questions and So Few Answers
Was Khan getting better? Was he able to rest through the night and let his body heal? Did the doctors have any answers, or were they about to tell Catherine that they still had no answers for her? Was the news going to be optimistic or heartbreaking? Did anyone have answers?
While waiting for some comforting answers, it hit Catherine that she, in fact, had a great big Mulga growing in her backyard. If Charlotte had been attacked, it could have left her paralyzed, or even worse, it could have taken her life.
