First, I want to send out a BIG THANK YOU to all of you that have encouraged me along this journey and it ain't over yet, lol.
Went for my two week post op yesterday. Of course I'm a little ahead of the game, and the surgeon wasn't doing cartwheels over it. He is glad that I feel better, but I must slow down and be obedient if I want my hip to heal properly. I am still having plenty of discomfort, but golly gee whiz I feel better!
|As my daughter was driving me to town on Saturday, we pulled out of the driveway and I screamed, "Oh My Gosh! That new phlox is blooming!!"|
I have only been out of the house twice since the 4th. I will be on crutches at least 4 more weeks, no squatting, twisting, bending, bath tub bathing, driving, yada, yada, yada. Nothing over 90 degrees or hyperextending, could pop out of the socket, ouch!
|Ornamental Potato Vine gone wild! This isn't the only area that's gone wild....sheesh..|
The two holes in my upper thigh are open so they have to be protected from any bacteria entering or that could be really bad. The cartilage had apparently grown all haywire and he had a lot of cleaning up to do. He gave me before and after photos, looks like a planet to me.
|My then 17 year old, she is 18 today, and my 14 year old worked a craft show for me on Sept. 8th. This is one side of the booth. The only instructions I gave was to use two table cloths instead of one. Pretty good without ever doing it before, don't you think? They made a few bucks too...|
I have a couple more I am entering, I really need to hobble around here and get busy...seeing how I have to let the gardening go for now....what is the Lord trying to tell me? hmmm
Linking up with Jean for Bloomin' Tuesday.
