My sister was 5 days - he is on medicare and I am not certain what he has in the way of supplemental insurance - that may be a factor. He's going to be doing rehab on an out patient basis. He was not certain how long that would go on. He expects to find out more tomorrow.
My friend who had the knee replacement surgery yesterday just called me on the way home from the hospital. Talked to him earlier and he had just gotten back from rehab. He says it hurts pretty bad but not as bad as he had expected. Rehab had him break out in a cold sweat, but he says he can handle it. Everything is pretty positive on his part.
Once again, those are some impressive hackle feathers. He'd put some hackle feather birds to shame. The boy is well endowed.
Just clicked on the third picture - saddle feathers are not to be sneezed at either. Over all condition and shine of that bird is top class. Whoever you got him from does a great job with their stock.
