Poor guy, he's been miserable for a long time! So yesterday he had his surgery. It took all day! Hospitals drive me nutty! The waiting....not knowing whats going on!!!

Anyways...we took him in at noon and they didn't get all the way done with him until 9:00 P.M.

They took so long with everything. The surgery was only going to take 2 hours....ended up being 3 1/2 hours. POOR guy. They said he has wierd anatomy! His hip was a lot worse than they thought.

Anyways...has anyone out there been through this? They told us he will not be able to move his hip outward....because if he does it will dislocate. So now I feel bad for him because he was thinking he would finaly get his body back. But because of how wierd his hip was he is just one of the few lucky ones....who's hip can dislocate if he moves it weird.

I hope I'm making sense...It was a long day yesterday...and I didn't sleep well. I keept having weird dreams! So I'm really tired right now!

Anyhow, I better run. I need some tea, I made a few bad choices (food wise) yesterday! Boy oh boy...I can tell this is going to be a bad day. Already have tummy ache, headache and darn tired!!!! OK....POSITIVE thoughts! I'm fine, I feel GREAT!!!

See ya guys!
