So it has been 5 days since my surgery and things are still going great, actually even better than great! The peeps can't believe how nicely/fast I am recovering. They also thought that it would be hard keeping me on cage rest but I actually really like my cage & I don't mind being in it all, actually for the first few days I did not even want to leave the cage. They had to force me out! The peeps told me it was good for my recovery to walk around. After the first day walking has also been a much better experience & not as painful, I also can now get up from laying down without howling in pain which hasn't happened since I first got hurt a month ago.
The peeps did get a little worried. The first two days I refused to eat, and by the third day I ate a little but not much. Even though I am about 16lbs, the peeps have always thought I could look to gain a pound or two. And now they think I have lost more weight, I look fairly thin, but luckily I have started to gain my appetite back and am eating a bit more but everyday each day. And even though at first I really just wanted to stay in my crate, I really enjoy being let out. The peeps blocked off the stairs downstairs and if someone is down there with my I can bet let out for a long time. Yesterday they started bringing me upstairs (carrying me up though) and I really liked that. It is nice to have some things back to normal.
I will soon be done with meds wich will be super nice! I have gotten very good about taking them but I still hate it. The worst part is everyday I have to have one of the peeps move my leg all around, to help with the healing, but it is easier said than done. I HATE IT. And I squirm & get really nasty and stiffen up my leg so it almost near impossible, but those darn peeps just keep trying!! Also the peep has some newer pictures of me, a few taken after my surgery, but catster is being a pain and we are having issues uploading them. Hopefully things will start working again.
Oh! And before I forgot, the peeps talked with the Doctor on Thursday and my biopsy results came back. It is most def bad genetics that caused my hip issues and there is a 38% chance that it will happen to my other hip. Which is a lot less than the peeps were expecting. Also if it does occur, it will happen within the next few years. Hopefully that will not be the case!!
Thanks everyone for your support!!
P.S I recently became one of Samoa's dream boats! I was a dream boat in training but now I am a full one! #88! Woot woot!

Sweetie, take your take in healing and don't worry about your other hip....It may be ok......one day at a time is my idea......You are a good looking cat....purrrs for healing
glad you are hurting less each day. pretty soon you will be back to your old self. we will keep sending up the purrs!
So glad you're doing better Charlie! Purrs for continued healing. Mom says she believes that sometimes we have a good idea of what's best for us--like you staying in your cage willingly, and me taking my inhaler without fuss. But you need to let them help you with the physical therapy too! So glad you get to go back upstairs! Purrs.
Thanks everyone!! You guys are the best. Today was one week since my surgery and the peeps can not believe how well I am doing! I tried to run up the stairs today but the peeps stopped me (not wanting me to overdo it), but I just feel so good! I used to not mine my crate but now I want OUT! I am ready to take on the world once again (:
