My dad just had a hip replacement yesterday and they ended up messing it up and breaking his thigh bone. Apparently it was the first time the guy's had that happen in like 10 years. There were two surgeons I think and it was his friend so personally I think he was maybe just nervous and didn't wanna mess it up. Plus I think he said he went back in and was trying to make it perfect and get all the bad stuff out or something. So anyway, that was local, but he went to Boston last night. They didn't have a bed for him all day but they finally found one at I think 8? 9? Last night but the thing that sucks is it's a double room and the only room was in the cancer ward so he's in a double room with a man with cancer. But he just had surgery at I think 10 this morning, this time it's a trauma surgeon. I don't think they did the whole thing at once though. I think they maybe had to do it in pieces. They obviously had to fix the thigh but then they have to redo the whole hip replacement too. Personally I think it's kind of a waste if a brand new replacement lol ah well though. But maybe they did it all at once, not really sure. But so it was supposed to be 4-8 weeks but now he's going to be laid up for like 3 months. And he just lost his mother I think a few week or last month too so it kinds sucks. My mom and I are going shopping and out to eat now too.
