Well this morning I went in for my surgery and everything went great! I came back home this afternoon and am now on the road to recovery. I am in a lot of pain, though pretty out of it thanks to all the meds, but it does feel great to be home. This am I was so confused because the peeps did not give us cats any breakfast and then I didn't get my turkey that I get every weekday morning! I went downstairs & pouted on my chair (*which is a super comfy game chair that I have taken over as my own) but when the peeps came downstairs I got super excited because I thought it was breakfast time so I got off my chair & started to run towards to the food bowls! It was the first I have tried to run in a long time. It made the peeps sad because they couldn't give me any food, they just gave me a bunch of meds. Usually the vets give the pain meds & anti inflammatory but because I am so much easier to medicate at home. After that they loaded me back into that stupid carrier & dropped me off at the vets.
The vets were very happy with how the precedure went & are confident I will make a full recovery. They also sent off the little piece of bone that they took out, this way they can get a better idea if it was genetics that was the main issue here and if my other hip will possibly break sometime too. They also gave me stiches that will dissolve so I won't have to go back into have those removed which is good, but in 2 weeks I will go in so they can make sure everything is going well & my recovery is heading in the right directing.
I am still pretty darn confused but my set up in this crate is pretty nice & I have been taking a super long nap on a nice comfy bed they put in there. The peeps did let me out for a little,I got around well but howled everytime I took a step. Later they offered me some food but I refused, hopefully I will want to eat tomorrow.
Thank you everyone for your positive thoughts and support! You guys are the best.

Thanks again everyone! I am doing well today. I can walk around now without howling in pain though I mostly just want to stay in my cage & be left alone but the peeps are pushing for me to come out for several small spurts during the day, the movement is good for my healing.
I must not be feeling too bad because while I was out for a short time, and one of the teenage boy peeps were suposed to be watching me, and managed to make it up in a high spot behind some storage containers. It was not easy to get me out of there! Needless to say that peep will not be on Charlie-sitting duty any more! Lol.
Glad to hear you are getting around...and being naughty is great! MOL!
Purrs are still going your way.
Typical teenage boy.
We are extremely happy your up and about and doing well.
One day at a time buddy...glad that everything went well. Vets & surgeries are not fun for sure. Just relax & enjoy the extra attention mol. You will be up & running in no time! purrs
