On to Rehab

I am pleased to report that my father was finally okayed to move from the hospital to rehab. His hip replacement surgery was successful and without complications, but since he normally takes various medications, these had to be restarted, and that meant several days of getting his blood in the right condition that the doctors felt he could be allowed to get out of bed more frequently and all that.
The rehab facility is farther from the house, but potentially BART-accessible. It seems like a nice enough place as such things go, and people can (and do) bring pets to visit. My father would like to see the rabbits, but as they dislike traveling in the carrier and are not too fond of sitting on laps, it's unlikely that they'll be making the trip over there.
Rehab will probably last about ten days.

I recommend not waiting until past 80 to get a major joint replaced.
