Hip, Hip, Hoo-ray! Pip-pay is OK!

Hip, hip... Mom sure is funny! Pip-pay's doctors said the surjery would take an hour and a half, if everything went well, and they were exactly right. An hour and a half after he went in, he had his new bionic hip and he was on his way to the recovery room. Everything went according to plan, and Pip-pay's heart was A-O-K during the whole thing. The doctors told Mim-may and Mom to go home and come visit tomorrow, that Pip-pay would be too sleepy to even know they were there.

WELL! Mom brought Mim-may home, and was making dinner when the phone rang, and it was Pip-pay! He said he wasn't feeling any pain at all! He sounded great!

If his bionic hip continues to heal the way it should, he will be moved to a rehab facility on Wednesday or Thursday, and should be home with Mim-may and Missy in time for Turkey Day next week!

I want to thank every cat, kit, woofie, bun & bean who found time to send a purr or prayer in Pip-pay's direction. To all the cats who were kind enough to teleport over and purr with me during the day, you have my most profound thanks.

The Cat Blogosphere Rocks!

Smootchies to all!

I'm so glad everything went so well. Hip seems to be easier than knee. I have 2 friends who were back in full swing in 4-5 weeks. Millie should share some healing tips with Pip-pay! Lots of purrs and hugs coming your way.
Love,
Deborah and Rusty

My grandad has a bionic hip too. His recovery went well, although he did need some help with putting on his underpants.

Happy healing!!
