Spread your arms and hold your breath and always trust your cape.

Dropped Piggy off this morning for her ear surgery.

She's giving the vet tech a kiss. Knowing her she's probably trying to con them into giving her treats.

We won't know the lab results for a few days, on the liquid in the middle ear. When the hole was made in the eardrum, it was clear fluid that came out. It was cultured, and the middle ear flushed. They also probed the bone in the middle ear. Looking for any signs that bacteria could have penetrated into the bone.They found no signs of bacteria being in the bone.
With the fluid being clear, it could be inflammatory fluid. We are keeping our fingers crossed that it is, and not bacteria. As that should mean a quicker recovery for her.
She's on 4 oral medications, plus ear drops.
After her long nap, she was in good spirits.

Piggy seems to be feeling a lot better.
Having to deal with some of the side effects of her meds. The steroids make her hungry, thirsty, and need to go out to potty a lot. Both antibiotics, and antifungal meds can/have caused upset stomach. So she's on a bland diet to combate any upset stomach issue, and fed twice a day before meds.
She's pretty happy with the cook food, and getting more meals. The vet said not to worry about her weight. That she is going to gain weight from the steroids.
She is back to being happy, so we are happy.

Yes.
I regularly give them a probiotics, so have been sticking with it. I'll will probably up it for a little while, after she finishes the antibiotics. She still has 2 - 5 weeks of antibiotics, depended on her lab work.
