What about Sabrina, her service dog?
Thirty years ago, Lisa was struck and thrown from the passenger side of a car until her abdomen collided with the steering wheel—blunt force that called for iterative repair to her digestive system and caused permanent damage to the nerves that signal her bladder is full. Today when she’s busy working away, Sabrina, who her and husband rescued eight years ago, will alert her to get up every couple of hours (a nudge to the elbow) to make a trip to the restroom. When Lisa suffers acute intestinal cramping, Crohns-like symptoms, Sabrina will sit at Lisa’s side and lean her body against hers. Sabrina’s calm and steady source of nurturing, helps Lisa to relax and mitigates the cramps.
C’mon, who rescued who?
