@kathstew: Like everybody said, there's nothing wrong with asking to bring a pair of betta with you. Unfortunately, I don't think Canada has those types of facilities for rehabilitation (they make you do it at the hospital, lol) so I wouldn't know our policies on what you can or cannot bring.

I'm sure your facilities are probably somewhat accommodating...it's not like you're asking to bring in a St. Bernard or an elephant XD

Too many people have opinions on things they know nothing about. And the more ignorant they are, the more opinions they have.

Thanks everyone, I appreciate the support. I'm glad I have SOME support in this. -sigh-
Part of going there, is so they can teach me how to live with my new hip replacement, learning how to do things in everyday life with it. Part of my everyday life is cleaning tanks and caring for my fishies! :P
Pewpewpew, that is a really good idea! Thank you! I will definitely look into that, that would be a great idea, especially so I could see my other fish even if I did bring 2 of my bettas.
Bahamut, there actually is a childrens rehabilitation hospital. Its near downtown Toronto. I've looked at it online and it seems really great. I am being referred there by the surgeon, to go there three days after my surgery. They gave me the option to go there, or go to the childrens physio center near my house but that wouldn't be admittance, just visits daily, which would be hard on my hip to travel back and forth there.
I am waiting for a reply from the social worker at the rehab center. Fingers crossed!

Life with Lupus is still a life worth living.

Good luck with everything, Kath and I hope you have a speedy recovery.
I've had 3 surgeries on my knees, all arthoscopic. The first one was back in the 70's and was pretty much exploratory.The other two were to remove torn cartilage.

Thanks guys for all the well-wishes!

I don't expect it to be too bad, all the people I've talked to who've had hip replacements say they felt almost instant pain relief once they woke up. I'm actually quite excited about it! :P

Unfortunately, I got the e-mail back. :( They said no, because of "infection-control", which I COULD understand maybe, if I didn't know of several hospitals that have fish tanks. When I mentioned it to my physiotherapist, she even said she was pretty sure there was at least one fish tank at this rehab place. Oh well, I guess its time for livestreaming, and pictures.
