Dinah has been having hip pain for some time now, and it was decided that she needed to have her left hip replaced (Her right had been replaced in 2006). The surgery was scheduled for Monday 5 March, and we drove to El Paso Specialty Hospital (where the surgery was to be done by Dr Bean) on Sunday afternoon in the motor home with our 2 dogs, 3 cats, and 2 visiting cats. The surgery was completed Monday morning with no hitches and she began to recover quickly.
Dinah received two units of blood after the surgery.
She was released Thursday afternoon and transferred to the Southern New Mexico Rehabilitation Hospital in Las Cruces. I followed the next morning with the motor home and animals.
