We have another heart murmur baby. Cloey is number 20.

8 week old Cloey came in from the commercial kennels of Missouri with a grade five heart murmur.

We leave in a few minutes for Texas A&M and the life saving surgery as we have done so many times before.

Can you turn on your heart light once more for little Cloey? Her surgery will run right at $2000.00 in order to save her life.

More tomorrow night from Texas A&M University.

UPDATE: July 29, 2003 7:30 A.M.
Cloey is coughing something awful and has been all night. We are leaving the hotel in Austin, for College Station and Texas A&M right now. Please pray for her. I am afraid she may be in congestive heart failure already. More later on tonight.

Update: January 29 10:00 P.M.

Cloey will have the crack the chest open surgery in the morning at 9:00 A.M. Her little femoral artery is just too small to attempt the less invasive coil procedure. She is NOT in congestive heart failure. He thinks the cough is an unrelated bronchial cough.:)

Cardiologist Dr. Matt Miller examines Cloey.

4th year vet student, Erin listens to the murmur.

Cloey charms my best Texas A&M buddy, Lucy Wendt, at the front desk.

Ok, we will send the camera in tomorrow morning into surgery. Please pray. SHe is one tiny girl. If she makes it, she has a home with an approved griever right there in College Station, Texas!

So far we have only raised about half of what we need to pay for Cloey's surgery. HELP!
