She was covered in abrasions, shivering and absolutely terrified. Huddled on the ledge of a bridge off I-20. She had lost all hope. Cars were whizzing past her. And with each one that zoomed past, she became more and more fearful. Bridget had no where to turn, no where to run but straight into traffic or straight off a bridge. But then, a warm hand swooped around her. He had put himself in danger to rescue her, and he picked her up and held her close. He brought her inside, to a special place, and everyone started telling her that everything was going to be alright. They immediately started caring for her. Providing her delicious Purina wet food, a special IV and a warm heating pad to cuddle up with.
But they were concerned.
This sweet girl had abrasions all over her body and they could only imagine what her insides looked like. They surrounded her to provide her the specialized care she needed to survive, but they didn’t know what her future would hold. She was just so injured, so cold, so sick. They kept caring for her. They didn’t leave her side. They monitored her all through the night, checking on her frequently, keeping her warm and making sure she was fed and loved.
