An update for you faithful readers:
After being being referred to an ENT the next day, we met with him and after some discussing about possible options (everyone was telling us that he would need surgery to get the sticker out … as in, needing to be put under.) Aaron asked him if he could just “pull it out”.
So he tried. And it worked. And he cried. But! For only a minute, unlike the visit to the ER and the torture that it was. He’s back to normal and we’re back to asking him to take things out of his ear. (It’s an issue.)
