Hip surgery is done!

Danny is doing GREAT! Dr Tassone came up to the room around 5pm (Danny will be in 410) to let me know his part is finished. Everything went well. They took the screws and plate out from the first hip surgery in Dec 08 and then removed the head and part of the femur bone. Once that was removed he flapped up the muscle in the empty space to use as a cushion. Once the doctor was able to see inside he said that the dislocation actually started to wear down the bone which can be painful. Boy it hate it when I'm right - sigh. Now hopefully Danny will be in a lot less pain. Danny has about another hour to go in the OR and then they will bring him right back to the room from the OR. I can't wait to see him
I'll post later
