Healing, kittens and stitching

Thank you for all the supportive comments after last weeks post about my husbands hip replacement. He is doing very well and I'm amazed at how fast he is recovering. The first few days after surgery, while he was still in the hospital I was wondering how I would be able to handle him when he got home, I didn't need to worry. One of the physical therapists actually came over to our house the first night he was home to make sure he could get up and down our 14 steep stairs to the second floor bedroom. He not only did it that night but has been going up and down at least twice a day since. Right now he's in the kitchen fixing his own lunch. He's still using a walker, but is gradually using a cane more frequently and it's made a huge difference. Next week the 27 staples holding is hip together are coming out.

The feral Mama cat that hangs out in our yard has had three kittens this year. Of course they are adorable and are really starting to get out and play. They are five weeks old so it will be a few more weeks before I'll need to find new homes for them.

This year they are all black and white with a little triangle on their foreheads just like Mom.
