Does something look a little "off" in this picture?
How about these?
See why I'm laughing? Samuel looks so funny with his ear all flopped over like that. Just totally brings out the dorkiness in him!!! (not that that's too difficult for him) Mom and dad started calling him "floppy!"
Mom wasn't sure what was wrong with him. His ear became swollen and seemed filled with air and fluid on Friday evening. She looked it over very closely and only found a tiny scratch. She thought maybe he got it while out on his walk with dad that morning. They were out in the brush looking for a place to hide his newest geocache. Mom thought maybe he was having an allergic reaction (which, for Samuel would not be unheard of) to something he come in contact with out in the brush. Therefore, she started giving him benadryl.
When it hadn't started to go down on Saturday, she checked with her SMS friends, and thanks to Meeshka's human woman, (yes, there are a few unstupid ones) she found out that what he had was an aural hematoma.
So, today mom took him to Thevets, and sure enough, he had to have surgery! She just hates to leave any of us at Thevets all day cuz she always worries so much. When she finally picked him up, this is what he looked like....
How I get to call him "bucket head"!!!! Haroorooroo!!!
Seriously, he looks even more pathetic than usual. Mom is all appologetic like this was her fault, and keeps calling him sweet names and talking all babyish to him. He has to keep the stitches in his ear for 3 weeks, and the bucket on his head for at least a week. I have a feeling mom is going to be spoiling and babying him the whole time!
I think I need to horka.
(still laughing, but wanting to gag too)
