Drops in her ears a few times a day and a little antibiotic.

Her ears were in rough shape. Dr said he had to drain them of fluid. The entire head of the bed was soaked. Then he put the tubes in and had to spray afrin in her ear to make the muscles contract. Apparently that burns pretty badly. She had some kind of narcotic spray up her nose and a dose of tylenol. Took a dose of motrin before bed and hasn't needed anything since.

Thanks for thinkng of her, everyone!
SO glad to hear Cinco's doing well, Bo! That sounds like rough surgery but very glad she's come through it so well and that it helped.

It must be so hard to see anyone in pain like that, but especially someone so little. Being a parent must be so hard when you know they need that help but don't want them to have to go through it. It must be a huge relief to both of you--all of you--to have that behind you.
God sent angels down to earth in the form of dogs with notes saying 'don't judge, just love.' They ate the notes but keep trying to deliver the message.
