Kila litter has arrived

 Kila had a very difficult pregnancy and an even more difficult delivery.  After going into labor, she produced 3 stillborn pups.  Labor then stopped.  After a few hours we were off to the vet for an emergency csection.  On the way to the vet, Kila developed eclampia/hypocalcemia and could not even stand up.  IV calcium and a csection later, Kila produced 3 more pups- one stillborn and 2 live females.
 Kila with Miss Silver and Miss B&T.  Miss B&T was only 6.5 ounces at birth- tiny!!!  She took a long time to revive after the csection but seemed vigorous the first two days.
 Overnight day 3, Miss B&T started to fade and despite our best efforts she passed away. 
 Miss Silver continues to do well and is getting chunky. She has doubled her birth weight on day 4!

 Kila has been very sick but is still a good mom
