So sorry I haven't updated in forever, been busy busy! Last time I wrote I was on my 5th day of recovery and I am now on my 14th. I am still doing fantastic! Since the last time I wrote I have been able to get a lot more time out of my cage. If my peeps are home I am out all the time, only getting put up when they leave for work/school or it's bedtime, and a big one: I get to go back up the stairs! They let me for the first time last weekend, I have been able to come upstairs but only when I was carried so I was really thrilled when they moved the barrier and I got the chance. It was a bit of struggle at first but now I can get up and down them like no issue!
I am also completely off meds. My antibiotics stopped a little while ago and I recently quit my pain meds, though I have had to fall back on them a few times on really painful days. I am feeling awesome but it still hurts a lot and I continue to limp quite a bit. But it is clear I am really good spirits and I am totally thrilled to have things start to get back to normal. Tomorrow I have to go back to the vet's office for my first visit since my surgery. The vetman wants to see how I am walking and how my healing is going and hopefully I will get the all clear and will be able to have more freedom (and won't have to stay in my crate as much). The peeps are also going to ask him how well I should recover from this in the end and if I will always have a small limp. Going into the surgery they weren't sure if I would, but fairly confident I wouldn't.
And another thing I must share with you is a wonderful thing a great friend did for me! My amazing pal Zach sent me a really sweet get well present! It came in the mail on Thursday and it is a super cool catnip toy and it came with a really lovely card filled with lovely support. To say the least the toy is a BIG hit at our house! Right after my girl opened the package she put the toy back in the envelope and placed it ontop of her dresser because she had to go out for a minute & was in a rush. Well a certain cat had a different agenda. Miss Dora smelled the catnip and being the little trouble maker she is jumped ontop of the dresser, knocked over the envelope, took the toy our of it and carried it downstairs. She looooooved it! And by the time my girl got home she was surprised to see me and Dora rolling around on it. The adorable toy now joins me in my cage and I whenever things get boring I turn to it for some fun. Thank you so much Zach! You are the best bud.
Also thank you,again, to all my pals for your continued support!

excellent news! catnip is sure good - I have chewed my way through 2 Yeoow catnip bananas & catnip trout & some nop chewsticks.
Thanks so much pals! Hope you are all having a great valentine's day (:
My vet visit went great! I did make it a bit hard because I refused to walk around much, but the doctor still got a good idea of how I am doing. He says everything looks great!! I can get my cage time cut back even more now. Though the doctor does think I will always have a limp, but it will most likely only be a small one. Also he said that if my other hip goes it will most likely happen within the next 6 to 12 months. Hopefully that will not happen.
