Scared me Alison! HA!

Thank you all - I will keep you updated on how things go.

Amazingly, they got the bladder tap on the first try. It's amazing because her urine is not in her bladder. sick Just the thought of where it is...I can't even imagine. She was a sweetheart and had a good time with all the people at the vet office. She's very nosy!

This is interesting - a woman has been following her story, e-mailing a bit with her foster, sent Keelin's information out to her friends to ask for donations, and has asked the rescue if she could meet Keelin at Cornell next Tuesday. She even asked if it would be okay to be there Wednesday, but we said we thought Cornell would say no to same day surgery visits...but will ask.

I've googled her of course. rofl But I just thought...I wonder if this is going to turn out to be an adoption story AND a get well story. Knock wood for the second and be neat for the first.

I know! Will definitely update how that part of the story goes!

From her foster mom - she said Keelin loves to have her picture taken, doesn't move a muscle when she does. Ha!


Good news - her urine culture came back negative so she is cleared for the appointment and hopeful procedure next week. Also we've almost fundraised everything we need for both, so now all we need is the perfect surgery. That's all!

Surgery today! I am going to be a little lazy here and just link to the blog with pictures there, since it is no longer a fundraising page:
http://bigdogsbighearts.blogspot.com/2012/05/please-help-us-help-keelin-she-depends.html Maybe later I can come back to post them here.

She has a great student and a wonderful surgeon who has done 5 of these surgeries (yeah, not so common!) and the student said he is 5/5 on them in terms of success. Hoping he will be 6/6.

I am going to believe nothing other than she WILL be in the top 50% where this surgery fixes her problem completely. Will anxiously await updates!!

Keelin's surgery is over and she's doing well recovering. I think it still might be possible that she is a total success but apparently her structure is quite abnormal with a loose ureter. I will c/p some info from an email tonight but I wanted to let you know she was doing okay! Thank you.

PS did you see a muppet in the pics? Nico is going to med school now. He wants to intern with Keelin's surgeon - he loved him. I hope those 2 vets there never retire or have already cloned themselves because they are skilled surgeons and wonderful people.

I saw the muppet smile Yes, a cute and smart intern!

So great to have folks there that are skilled and that you trust and like.

I hope that she is able to be a complete success, so glad that the surgery went so well!

I just looked at the pictures and I love the Dogtor Dawg (Muppet) pictures with Keelin. wub
