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.
