Dada’s note: Dennis has had his visit to the cardiologist and has been declared healthy enough for anesthesia — his left ventricle is actually 5mm smaller than it was before, which is good news — so tomorrow he goes in for the additional testing that will require him to be put under. As of his weigh-in at the cardiologist, Dennis has gained back nearly a pound and a half and is currently at 45.4 pounds, after dropping to a low of 44 pounds. For comparison, Tucker weighed about 38 pounds for most of his life. Of course, Dennis is considerably larger than Tucker was:

It remains to be seen what the next round of tests tells us, but right now we are cautiously optimistic than Dennis is recovering from his IBD-related crash.
