He's Hip. He's Cool.

Gen, Richard and Eva at the hospital.

Here we are, almost a month later, and I still need to post about Richard's brand-spanking new hip.  He had his left hip replaced on July 10th, and spent 5 days in the hospital.  He's doing really well.  He is building up his strength, and every day he seems a bit stronger and more confident in his abilities.  His biggest complaint is that he still doesn't have the go ahead to do his favourite chores, like driving and mowing the lawn.  He is a bit cabin-crazy, but, he's got a new hip.  So. 

The surgeon would like to replace his right hip as soon as the left one heals.  We see him again on the 26th, so we'll know more then.  Until that day, we carry on.
