Introducing Tiney

Hi, I'm Tiney! When ratbone took me in I had a deadly heart condition. I was born with a hole in my heart. Right away these great people raised money for me and brought me to a surgeon where I received life saving surgery. My chances of a full recovery were grim. My surgery was a success in closing the hole in my heart but I still had a murmur. I went back to the surgeon in 3 months for a follow up and at that point, I shocked the doctor by making a great recovery! I still have a slight murmur and will need someone who can afford to do follow ups with a heart doctor and is diligent with my heart care to insure my long life span.
