So, she’s anemic and drastically underweight. Her x-rays show plenty of shell material in her gut and what appears to be a collapsed right lung. We’re not sure the shell material is moving so we are going to treat with some drugs specifically to help that. Fortunately she is strong enough to have supervised pool time during the day but is currently being dry docked at night. She ate a bit today (with some very strong encouragement from us; we placed squid in her mouth against her wishes, she did not spit it back out). Still keep those fingers crossed – she has got a long way to go before she is even close to being stabilized. Lola’s page
In other turtle news: Gloria and Jay did get released via a boat trip out to the sea weed last week. And we have several turtles that are looking good to go soon. Pending some final blood work, we may be sending Ephie and Hugo on their merry way in the next few weeks.
