Sitting in the waiting room Thursday morning, the minutes crept by for Kat Schoettle.
“It will be a long day,” she said.
A dear loved one was undergoing a stem cell transplant.
“I’m a little nervous,” said Schoettle.
The patient on the operating table was only 10 months old. His name: Ralph.
“He’s family,” said Schoettle, with a sigh, wringing her hands.
Ralph has a degenerative condition in his leg. It’s essentially rotting from the inside and would one day need to be amputated.
Ralph is also a pug.
