I'm with Dad this morning in the hospital. The surgeon was here earlier and tells they do the surgery on his hip later today... 4-5 PM. The surgeon said they will have Dad walking some and sitting in a chair tomorrow. That's good news!
(They surgeon explained that he broke the ball off the hip joint. And that the surgery will be like a hip replacement. It will take about an hour.)
He's a little uncomfortable but not in pain. He talking a lot and would like to check his email, work on his blog, check his tomato plants, and feed the birds. That will come later.
