I’m so glad you wrote this beautiful story of how you and Bailey met. I only got to meet her a couple of times, but she’s unforgettable. That face, oh that face. Whatever emotion she was feeling, her face showed it and the sass levels were hysterical! You are an incredibly strong, dynamic, gifted, talented, kind, caring, thoughtful, giving soul. It’s no surprise that the way you found Bailey reflects all of that. Your connection in the physical was one of the strongest I have ever seen. But I see something new in this (heart wrenching, devastating, but so painfully inevitable when we open our hearts to loving a pet) non-physical version of Bailey. She’s most certainly all up in your space as she rests after her quite medically complicated journey. You cannot be separated by something like a body. She is an evolved soul. Together, you grew and learned and felt things you never knew possible. She might need to rest a bit, but I know she will send you signs.
