Update on Father in Law

The latest news on my father in law is quite good. The doctors are very happy with how the blood thinners are working on the clots, and how well my father in law is handling it. His surgeon came to seem him at last, and has scheduled him for the completion of the repair of his hip replacement on the 27th of February. Now that we have a date, he has something to work toward. They are intending to keep him on heparin until that time because they can take him off of it the evening before the operation, and put him back onto it almost right after the operation, which should help prevent any further clotting. Because it is still almost a month until the surgery, they will be moving him back to the Palmerston hospital either today or tomorrow so he will be closer to home.
