If I only had thumbs I could open this door and get out of here.
No such luck.
We went to the vets today - and it appears I get to go back tomorrow...
Turns out my bum (bloated) ear flap is indeed a "hematoma" - HOWEVER - it's not ALL my fault.
I have chronic ear infections. It happens to those of us blessed with floppy ears.
Apparently though - if the one in the household WITH THUMBS....(you KNOW who I'm talking about)...If she had cleaned my ears better and more often... I would not have been scratching so much...which would not have weakened the blood vessels....which would not have then burst when I shook my head after the fountain dive.
Tomorrow I go in for the operation. I heard mention of 30 stitches and a conehead.
Mom drops me off in the morning - and will pick me up in the afternoon.
I've made her promise that she will do a post tomorrow night to let everyone know I'm just fine. (I do expect lots of hugs and rubs and maybe some guilt induced treat baking).
So the lesson learned here....CLEAN YOUR EARS....and it you can't reach - have the 2-legged ones do it for you! Pretend it's pampering!
