Ava is having PDA heart surgery today

I just dropped off Ava this morning to have heart surgery for PDA. Of course I focus entirely on other outcomes because I'm freaking out underneath my calm exterior that I need for work. I should know by or around noon how she is. Please send positive thoughts to her and for me!! Thanks everyone!

so it's almost noon. haven't heard back. don't want to breath down the surgeon's neck. he has been incredibly patient and i am confident in his ability. but man, waiting is horrible.

I will make a wish on my wishing jar for successful surgery and speedy recovery.

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. - Unknown

sooo...the the doctor/surgeon/vet just called! he said everything went as smoothly as one could want. she did fine under anesthesia, he closed off the duct, no bleeding out, etc. they are keeping her under observation and will call me tomorrow to see if we can take her home based on how well she is doing.

YEA! Thanks for everyone's thoughts and prayers. They worked!!
