Update on Tessa!!!!!
Well it was a rough scary time but Tessa is fine now although she can no longer bark she can breathe so easily now, her stoma doesnt even really look bad and if she is wiped once a day most days not even because she is an expert at cleaning herself now,She is so happy and playful again I would recommend this to anyone that is facing lp we were going to do the tie back as well but surgeon says the risks are so high and her quality of life now is so good why mess with that??????
