You are so lucky ! I always wanted to be a vet! was a recurring
statement at any and every gathering which I ever attended.
Yes I was lucky, or maybe I was a bit more determined than most.
Thank goodness for a good sense of humour and a positive attitude
to life, if a bit cynical.
I learnt to accept with a good grace being woken for the third time
many nights to see emergencies, most of which could easily have
waited until daylight.
I got over the God Syndrome and the inevitable loss of some
patients only to have the immense satisfaction of pulling through
some very diffi cult cases.
