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.
