Thank you all for the Paw'r Prayers...
I am on my second day after surgery. Things are beginning to return to reality.
Unfortunately, I'll be on restricted activities for the next two weeks.
Stitches (staples) come out then and the dratted cone comes off.
As would be expected, I am hobbling, but using the leg as much as I can.
The procedure I underwent is called "Excision Arthoplasty". In our terms, they cut the ball off my hip bone, so I no longer have a joint there. They had to do this because of a bone deterioration problem associated with the break and the previous surgery.
After the staples are removed, Dad and I will be going for a lot of walks, helping to strengthen my hip muscles and legs, for our planned summer adventures of hiking in the Steens Mountains. We need to be up to 10 miles by July!
