Several weeks ago, we noticed something funny about Samson's ear. After surgery, a cone, learning to navigate the house with plastic horribleness wrapped around his head, suture removal, more healing, more stupid cone, et cetera, et cetera.
It was all for naught.
The damn thing came back. His ear filled back up with blood.
This week, we have had the ear drained twice. Fortunately, the hematoma is much smaller than the first time and we are hoping this time, well this time it's for keeps.
Tuesday he goes back under the knife. More sutures. More of that damn cone. But he just rolls with it. We say, "come on sweet boy, let's get the cone on" and he just trots over and sticks his neck out. It's his new normal right now. And ours.
He is such a trooper. We will do it all again but are looking forward to the day of no cone.
