Most of you know that 2 months ago, Jamie got a hematoma in his left ear. We're still fooling with it. He had to go 2 weeks waiting for the surgery so that all the blood tests could be done. Then he waited 2 weeks for the stitches to come out. Since then, we've been going back and forth and last week the vet decided the ear was infected. He gave him a shot of steroids and tressaderm ear drops, which I believe also has a steroid in it. He's doing well with that and the outer portion of the ear that he had been scratching is healing up. All in all, he seems to be doing better but this has been going on for what seems like forever. He has decided that his carrier is a wonderful place to be so he's in there a lot of the time. Prior to that he was sleeping in his litter box. I'd just like life to go back to normal for both of us. We should have our own parking spot with a plaque on it at the vets office. My vet, bless his heart, has been charging for meds but not for visits. What a help that has been. Hopefully the visit we have scheduled is our last one for awhile. Now I'm trying to do light massage on his ear so that hopefully it will look a bit more normal.
