Hip replacement surgery done......last Thursday afternoon…...back home Sunday afternoon. Pretty darn amazing! I am not dancing, and I have some pain, but I am on the mend. They had me up and walking Friday morning and I tested out on the stairs on Sunday morning. The surgeon said I passed, and they were kicking me out.
I felt really good to get back home, but the best part was being able to have a beer with my dinner. Those hospital people just don’t realize how uplifting that could be for a guy.
I am gimping around the house with my stylish walker, wishing I could go faster and farther. Of course, we had a nice snow storm today, and I had to rely on the neighbor kid to do my driveway. He had to deal with about 6 inches of snow and howling wind, so it was pretty nice to have him take care of it.
Now, I just need to get on with the rehab and get ready for our 52nd anniversary trip to Kauai on March 2.
Best to all you LJers…. and thanks for all the kind words, prayers and wishes.
