I Can Make Choices Whether Anyone Agrees… or Not…

by Ellie Walsh

I can make choices

Today we had to bring Kuva, my chocolate lab, to the vet to have a growth removed. I wrote about Kuva last month when it was his 11th birthday. He is a big happy boy….

In all these years he never had an operation, never was under anesthesia. I was a little concerned…

I called the vet during the day and they told me everything went fine, he was resting and we should pick him up at 6PM. We got there a few minutes before 6 and the vet came out to see us. She told us she had found a small growth right next to the big one so she took that one off too. OK – Good I thought… Then she said something about the biopsy results…. Right away I told her I did not want to know the results.

“You don’t want to know the results?” “No I don’t want to know.” I said “He is 11 yrs old, he has hardly ever been on any medication. If you told me he had cancer – I would not subject him to any chemo or harsh medicine anyway. So why would I want to know?”

She wasn’t too thrown – she has been Kuva’s vet for years… Not that we go there that often… but she knows me.

Then she said “Well you would know what to expect.” – – – “Exactly” I said “And that is why I don’t want to know. I only want to expect that he has a good life and when it is time for him to move on – he will.”

She then told me if she did this biopsy she legally would have to tell me the results…. “Then don’t do the biopsy…. because I don’t want to know.” – – It seems to me I saw a flash of remembrance in her face…. Years ago they found a lump on his chest – She asked me if I wanted it biopsied – My answer was “No”

Bad choice? Not for me… nor, I believe, for Kuva. He has developed several growths – the only reason we had this one taken off is because of it’s location – it was going to make it difficult for him to go to the bathroom. And while he is 11 he is still full of life. He is a little stiff sometimes when he first gets up – but mostly he wants to run for his frisbee… he wants to kiss you all over… and he loves to sing! He is a happy boy.

Why don’t I want biopsies? That feels right for me – and when I say me – I mean even my own physical body. I personally was told to have a biopsy over 34 years ago – I never had it done … and I am doing AOK!

Is that right for everyone? No – You have to follow what is right for you!

I had to smile as she told me the reason I would want to know the results of the biopsy was so that I would know what to expect. Today I get to choose what to expect… I don’t want anyone filling my head with things that could or might happen.

As Abraham says:

“In other words, when you have an expectation, you’ve got a dominant thought going on, and Law of Attraction is going to deliver that to you again, and again and again.”

I get to choose what reality I look at….

Kuva is now home resting…. He was wobbly when we came home – he laid down and he is settled in for the night. Though he didn’t eat much tonight – which is very unusual – he did give me lots of kisses.

My expectation is – he will recover from this quickly and live his life in his own way…. and I will continue to facilitate that in anyway I can. 😀

This is a very eye opening post. Usually we have a tendency to think that if we don’t always get the results, then we are doing something wrong to our animal. That we are bad pet parents. I always keep the thought in my mind (whether I ask for the results or NOT) that my animal(s) have a stream of Well-being, Universal love and Health love flowing to them at all times. Big hug to you and your dog Kuva

Hi Coryelle
We are taught to follow the “authority” figures…. Today I am my own “authority” figure. I listen to my voice and follow it. And… I choose my expectations – not take on the expectations of others.

Kuva sends you hugs! 😉

Hi Tim
Most important is to follow what feels right for you!
I’m thrilled that you feel the Love – that is my passion! 😉
Thanks for sending the Love all around!

Dear Ellie,
You did the right thing. I agree with you sooo much.
What to expect is our choice only!
Lovely post.
Hugs and kisses, and excellent recovery for Kuva.

Hi Patricia
So good to *see* you! Yes we get to choose our expectations — which means we get to choose what reality we live! We are indeed that powerful!

Big Hugs to You! 😀

Great story Ellie and great choice. I’m sure and hope Kuva makes a full recovery. He sounds likes a lot of fun.

Hi Andrew
Kuva is doing Fantastic – he is indeed lots of Fun! And I continue to choose my expectations! All is Good! 😉

Great post. I love that you did not dance to the tune of the vet. I am often called stubborn by people who do not know me well, but I do not believe that I am stubborn. I just choose to follow my intuition which may or may not seem “logical” to others.
I wish Kuva a speedy recovery.

Hi Carol
I sooo identify with being called stubborn when I don’t do someone else’s dance! I’ve also been called arrogant because of that – I’m not stubborn nor arrogant – I’m confident because, as you say, I follow my intuition – my inner voice!
Kuva is AOK! He never seemed bothered by any of this. He just goes with the flow. He teaches me great lessons!
Thanks so much for sharing! 😀
