    Lily’s Story

    Chapter 7: Searching St. John’s

    by Carolyn Mueller

    A few days into the recovery from the Joplin tornado, Tara and Lily were assigned to search what was left of St. John’s Hospital. They needed to go to the roof, they were told, though it was unclear whether the building was structurally sound. The tornado hit the hospital dead on. There had been a scramble to save patients the night of the storm.

    A group of firefighters surrounded Lily and Tara in a tight circle as they ascended the remains of the hospital’s stairs. The windows were blown out, and holes were torn in

    Tara Prosser and Lily woke to a new world. Though their house suffered only cosmetic damage, the landscape surrounding them was greatly altered.

    Lily and Tara were sent to search the Home Depot on Rangeline. Rangeline is the aorta of Joplin, running right through the middle of town, host to major shopping centers, day cares and the high school. The Home Depot was split wide open by the storm, its contents spilling across the ground.

    When Tara and Lily arrived, they encountered an alien world. It was a foreign

    Chapter 4: Lily’s Illness

    By Carolyn Mueller

    It was a warm late spring day in 2011 when Tara first noticed a swelling on Lily’s neck. Lily didn’t eat that night, and she began to pace. Tara Prosser knew something was wrong. A discoloration grew in Lily’s eye, and she began bumping into walls.

    Monday morning, Tara awoke to find that Lily’s condition was worse. She rushed her beloved friend to the local veterinarians, who were completely stumped by Lily’s problem. They advised Tara to take Lily to the Oklahoma State University Veterinary Clinic in Stillwater, 180 miles away, as soon as possible.
