pic in following post!!!)This little guy came into our home as a new adoptee a week ago in the early stages of congestive heart failure and needing emergency heart surgery to fix a serious heart defect. Milagro is full-grown -- they estimate he's at least 2-4 years old -- but less than 5 pounds. Here he is at the hospital a few days after heart surgery. Parts of his left front and left hind legs were shaved for some of the pre-surgery exams (sonogram, blood pressure, ekg, etc.). His left front paw bends far around to the side--apparently it was broken when he was young and healed on its own, without medical care. He still needed a second complex heart procedure, which was scheduled 10 days from when this photo was taken, to save his life.
