Talked to Helen this morning. Surgery boy died. Ryan took him into the office and did a necropsy on him (Ryan is Helen's son, soon to be a vet)... and the surgery site itself was healed nicely but what happened is that blood had gotten down lower into his intestinal track and formed a scab there that then caused the walls of the intestines to fuse together (puppies are growing so fast that his little body just fused these part together). The blockage is what killed him.
I know there is a very special little angel in heaven loving that pup right now. He was a fighter.

This has been a heartbreaking litter!! Poor Helen, I hope the surviving pups bring her and their owners lots of joy!
