sigh.... It's sealed over and is filling back up. :neutral:

I have a bunch of rambling emotions and thoughts running around in my head right now. I'll be calling the vet in the a.m. to see what the next step is from here.
I can only please one person per day. Today is not your day, tomorrow doesn't look good either.

Vet won't be in until tomorrow. We're pencilled in for surgery on friday, but won't know for sure whats going on until tomorrow when he gets my message.

talked to Vet. He said surgery is ideal, but if we don't have a ton of cash, we can try letting it heal on it's own; either way there will be a scar, a surgical fix is just more predicatable. He said what he would do is keep an eye on it and go from there; we're going to trace the edges of it and see if it starts to grow, if it starts to grow, the I think likely it would grow to eventually affect the whole ear, so if it starts to grow we'll go to surgery.
On the plus side, I know Vet has a scheduled surgery day at the hospital, and I asked if they only day he could do surgery was on that day, and he said no. So if I notice it growing, then hopefully within a day or so we could get it fixed. I don't know how I could ever get another relationship with a Vet like this again(since it has a lot to do with having a dog that for a while, was in every couple weeks or months, and then actually working with him), but if and when I switch, I'll have to try again - its so worthwhile.
I would think the next couple days will tell me if we're going to go to surgery.

I hope he doesn't need surgery. Fingers crossed for healing on it's own!
