life were as easy as one of my legal agreements. I can fix most things with a clause or paragraph but not in this case: I am referring to the life of a little sick animal that has been placed on my lap by one of my daughters. As Mum, I am meant to be able to work my magic and heal it, but I fear this little pet rat is on its way out. Curled up in a little ball, barely breathing, barely taking any food. It breaks my heart because I am a rescuer and stubbornly believe I can fix anything. Not this time I fear.
