Second Opinion

We went to see Dr. Pernell in Charleston, SC, who performed Ivy's first TPLO in February. We were on vacation in South Carolina at the time and drove into Charleston to get his opinion. Unfortunately, he believes Ivy's right CCL is torn also, and that she needs a second TPLO. We would love to have the surgery performed by him, but we have no place to stay to rehab her, so we will be doing the surgery in Virginia when we return. I am so very sad for her, but I am holding on to the hope that she will be swimming and running again in 2009!!!
