Not looking good.
My little girl has Patent Ductus Arteriosus, or PDA. Basically she's got a hole in her heart and she's had trouble getting in oxygen. She's already in the early stages of heart failure.
Extremely bad news is that she's too young to have the heart closed surgically, but somewhat good news is that a specialist a few hours away has been trying a certain procedure on "older" dogs. We are going on Friday to see if she's a candidate for that procedure. If not, she apparent;y only has a few more months to live.
I'm a basket case. I didn't sleep last night, my eyes are practically swollen shut and I feel sick.
I'm kicking myself for not bringing her in months ago to be checked again, but they said I could wait.
I'm hoping this doctor can do something.
Keep her in your prayers (if you're as animal goofy as I am.)
Her name is Tyler.
