I hope everything turn out ok. But I will tell you when Sophie was a little over 1 she had a bout with pancreatitis, I thought we were going to lose her. I finally took her here and they really did a fantastic job with her. She is now 9 1/2, and still going strong. Chased down a rabbit today, much to my dismay, but still has it in her.
