He said that for what it is, it looks good, but recommended that we don't try to over-clean it because we could accidently destroy growing, healthy tissue. Its so hard not to want to scrub it or something though! Not much we can go for it but keep the good in and the bad out at this point. He said to continue with the sugardine because it will harden and form a barrier on the flesh, and to watch for any signs of heat, fever, or excessive swelling because that could mean infection. If that happens, we're to call him immediately. I'm keeping a log of her temperature.
He said his guess was as good as ours as far as hearing goes though. The slice is deep enough to mess with some the vital parts of her ear but he can't tell how badly they were damaged, and doesn't know if they'll repair themselves or not. She can feel her entire ear though, miraculously. If I blow on the tip of her ear she'll flick it weakly.
