Hubby goes into hospital at 6.30am (did I mention that it's an hours drive from home) for his hip replacement.
Would appreciate all positive thoughts and prayers for a smooth operation and a speedy, non-complicated recovery.
Will update you all after the surgery.
[UPDATE 28 Jan 3:00pm] Thanks for your comments, thoughts and prayers everyone.
I rang the hospital about 1/2hr ago, he's out of surgery and in the recovery room. He'll be moved to the ward later on. I will go and see him this evening and post an update when I can.
I'm really, really hoping that all went well and that he will recover quickly. It's been a long haul![/UPDATE]
