No, I'm not on my deathbed or anything like that. Or maybe something not so far off.... Sorry, but my health has turned for the worse. Allow me to explain...
Dr. Ladyvet found a polyp in my left ear and said THAT might be the reason behind my snot-slinging because the ears are connected to the nasal stuff. So she wrote up an estimate of cheapest to not so cheapest and came up with $1,075 to $1,465 for the procedure. AND with no guarantee that it would fix the nasal problem OR if it did, that the problem wouldn't return. This was 3 weeks ago. We've been on the road since then.
Today Matt noticed I had a creamy off-white discharge coming out of both ears. He cleaned them well, but a few hours later my right ear is getting creamy again.
We had made an appointment to see a different vet for a second opinion once we return to town, but with this new development Matt is very sad and is saying somewhat tearfully that we'll be parting company soon. We've been through a lot of challenges as I've mentioned on this blog. My health or Matt's employer throwing us curveballs with the threat of my being booted out of the truck or me dying or something. I may not make it to our eight year anniversary. But Matt insists he won't allow me to suffer much. He'll put off the end as long as possible, but if I can't be made reasonably comfortable he'll release me from active duty.
