Two days from now, I will be “in hospital” getting a new hip. Not a prospect I am looking forward to, however, my hip has been getting progressively more painful and limiting, so….....
The therapy guy said that this operation isn”t fine, delicate surgery…..more like carpentry. Big tools and swinging a mallet areound…..terms I can relate to.
If all goes well, a few days in the hospital and then home for rehab and recovery. With any luck, I will be able to stand at my saw, drill press, etc. for more than 15 minutes at a crack, without having to sit down for a while. And, maybe, I can go back to walking 9 holes of golf instead of riding. I might even be able to hoist my grandkids up without wondering if I should. With those things as incentive I will attack rehap with a vengence…..and plan to celebrate our 52nd anniversary with Barbie on Kauai on March 6.
Send good vibes….......John
