Wrapping up my birthday month
Friday, August 28, 2020
Today hubby took me to Frankenmuth for my free birthday chicken dinner at the Bavarian Inn Restaurant. It was yummy & the best part of it was I didn’t stuff myself. Hubby on the other hand ate six pieces of chicken, mounds of potatoes, buckets of stuffing not to all the other delicious side dishes, finishing up with a small chocolate sundae.
Had my 5-6 week follow up with hip surgeon early this morning. He assured me that the knee pain that’s keeping me up at night is a frequent side effect following hip surgery. He said this is the body trying to adjust to the new hip. I will be starting PT next week to counteract the knee problem. Once this is all taken care of I’m looking at having the other hip replaced.
I’ve alway spent the entire month of August celebrating my BD as my birthday is August 1st. This year was different. I was recovering from surgery. This was my first birthday without my sister to celebrate with. That was extremely difficult. She always made my day extra special.
I miss her immensely.
