Kurt Update

More information.  IF they had identified the broken hip in Cancun, there would be much less damage and problem.  Oh well, we have to deal with what we have now.   Because the blood supply was not reaching the hip socket for 7 days, he is going to have to have a partial hip replacement.   That should last 5 years.  It is much less invasive that a total hip replacement.  They will  have him up walking the day after surgery.  Now to the surgery—he needs to have the blood thinner out of his system.  That should be 72 hours but they want to do this surgery as soon as possible (like yesterday).  We will either be an “add on” today (there are 10 ahead of us) or tomorrow.  So, just in case, he cannot have food.
