Dr. Watson was able to re-position the anus to a more proper location and cause some separation to the vagina/urethra/vulva area (prior to this surgery the poop was basically dumping into the vulva).

While this procedure will certainly help this girl it may not completely rectify her situation. But we felt like doing a total restructure would have compromised her little bit of muscle in that area and it wasn’t worth the risk if this procedure can make her sound enough to eliminate fairly normally and not have the terrible pain she was enduring.

We will know in about 3 weeks if a more complicated procedure is needed but Dr. Watson is very satisfied that it went better than he thought it might.

I wish to thank all of you for your kindness to this sweet bubble of energy.

She’s amazingly healthy from her tail up! She has you all to thank for the smiles she will exhibit in the future….now does anyone know of a stay at home person for the next three weeks that can give this girl her meds and love on her til we determine the next step????

Love you for loving her.
