Is there an end?
« on: October 05, 2019, 04:02:18 pm »
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.

 So sorry this is still ongoing.  I agree time for this to all go away so you can just enjoy each others company.  Praying for Jamie's ear to completely heal.  hugs to you both

Awww, poor Jamie.  But what a good mommy he has, taking care of him so diligently and making sure he gets his meds and massages :)  Hope his progress speeds up for both of you.

Well, we went back to the vet (again) yesterday.  Jamie's ear is still infected so we have switched from the tresaderm over to baytril.  I have to call my vet tomorrow and let him know how the ear looks.  All I want is for my sweetie's ear to get better.  He repeatedly sleeps in his litterbox, which he does when he doesn't feel good.  I told the girl at the front desk I wouldn't know when to make the next appointment.  It will depend on the progress.  I had to chuckle when she said "Don't worry.  We'll get you in.  You've been here so frequently".  Yup, if they gave frequent flier miles, Jamie could fly to see all of you.  Jamie thinks we should have our own parking place with his name on it on a big plaque.

Oh dear poor Jamie.
I hope his ear heals and nothing else pops up and he can enjoy life again.
