Another Hip Replacement.

Saturday, October 10, 2020

Never did I think that I would face another Hip Replacement so soon. We, my mother's kids, must have inherited her bad bones. All my siblings have had one joint replacement or another. I am facing my third! Getting ready for Tuesday! Both of my boys will come at different times to look after me. The youngest traveling across the country, tomorrow, the oldest will join us this coming Thursday. Not something I am looking forward to, although my first hip replacement was much easier than my knee replacement. I believe, I will be in good hands, and have been busy all week with Dr., Hospital and Lab appointments. Now I have to quarantine until Tuesday morning, because the Hospital insisted on a Covid-19 test. I have to show up at the Hospital by 7:30 AM. It's at the other end of town, but, at least, I know now where it is. I am expected to return home the same day, considering there are no complications. Wish me luck. I can use it!

    Thank you, Carolyn. I am glad I was able to get such a quick surgery date. I will do everything to get back onto my feet, fast. It was so good to hear from you. Take care.

    I wish you a safe and successful operation. It must be quite comforting to hear from your surgeon about the advances made since your last surgery. You are very fortunate to have two loving sons to come help you as you recuperate. I hope your recovery is smooth and speedy, and you're back outside soon doing all the things you enjoy!

    P.S. When I tell people that my mother had 3 hip replacements, they look at me very strangely. The first was a bungled job so after a few years she couldn't stand the pain and found a GOOD doc who replaced the first. Later the other hip had to be done = 3.
