Thanks for all your thoughts, prayers, comments, emails and messages.
I went to see hubby this evening. He was a bit pale but other than that he was looking very good. He reckons that the pain from the hip is less than it was before the operation, so that is great.
The doctor wasn't there to talk to, but as hubby isn't on antibiotics I'm assuming they didn't find any hidden / residual infection (which was one of our fears).
I will go again tomorrow afternoon with the girls.
Please keep up the thoughts and prayers as there's still a long way to go - but so far, so good.
