Another Scare ... Diaphragm Surgery
Apparently Sophie's diaphragm had a small tear in it, and 3 months after her accident, her liver, stomach and spleen pushed up into her chest cavity with her heart and lungs. We took her in for emergency surgery and Dr. Robinson saved her life AGAIN! She actually suffered a collapsed lung on the operating table, turned blue, and almost died. There were 3 assistants standing there holding her organs while the doctor fixed her diaphragm. Three hours after surgery, our little girl actually got up and went outside to go potty at the Vet's ... they were amazed at her recovery! She had 29 staples put into her tummy to close the incision!
