Maeve's Friend Indeed

Today was the one day out of 100 I absolutely need Maeve with me in the woods.
This is day two of a migraine. As expected, the pain and nausea were significantly less than day one's.
What was not as expected were the more unusual neurological symptoms. We were two and a half miles into a four and a half mile hike when I realized I shouldn't have gone into the woods.
Maeve handled it like the pro she is. She slowed her pace and led me down the trail. She trotted back to touch me periodically, which helped me ground myself and focus on the trail. Without her I would have been likely to walk off the trail or take a wrong turn.
