Poppy’s Heart

Poppy continues to do well in her recovery. We are hopeful that her next echo will show evidence that her heart is healing (remodeling).
 
And, for those interested in some of the technical info, here are two photos taken during surgery. The first is pre-ligation. The blue tags are retracting the vagosympathetic trunk, the black silk sutures are around the ductus but not tied. The second is after ligation.
 
It's so amazing what the surgeons can do on such tiny little pups! <3IMG_0621 IMG_0625
