The rescuers determined she had a lung infection and was also severely underweight and dehydrated. The sealwas only a few days old when she was separated for her mother, so top priority was to get her well enough to go back to sea.

When she had finally gained enough weight and they finally decided she was ready, volunteersbrought her to the beach, where shehappily waddled into the water, despite being away from it since she was a pup.
