So many simultaneous traumas.
A deep, terrible wound on his thigh. The bone was broken in his leg. His raw skin was on fire with raging mange. But up the stairs he hobbled to get close to his rescuers. His eyes seemed to plead: “Take me with you!,” and we gently said, “Yes.” As his various treatments got underway, we realized that we had a very special boy on our hands.
He practically assisted in his own treatments! We had to think of a name that expressed his astounding resilience and a kindness too big for words. So we named him Superman. Someone steals his cape though! Get ready to fall in love again.
