Poor Miller!

WARNING!!! Before you look at the pictures - be prepared for your butt to tingle when you see them.

Several weeks ago Miller got cauliflower ear again. If you remember he got it in Puerto Rico and had surgery. When he got it we took him to the vet & had it drained. A few day later it came back & his ear was huge! We called around & got the best price for another surgery. Courtney took him in 2 weeks ago today. When he brought him home he said, "Miller has a button in his ear!" I had no idea what he was talking about. When I got to see him he had the huge cone around his head. I couldn't believe he left it on! That night I saw his ear. There isn't 1 button, there aren't 3 buttons, there are 6 buttons....on EACH SIDE of his ear!! 12 buttons in his ear!!!! Yes people I mean buttons. Like buttons on your shirt or pants. According to the vet it will cut down on the scar tissue & it should pop back up. We were supposed to get the buttons out the following Wednesday but they didn't take them out. So we were supposed to get them out last Saturday....but they didn't take them. The finally took the buttons out yesterday. He still has to wear the cone until tomorrow night to keep him from scratching at it while it continues to heal. Poor baby!!!
