Well, we got to my appt on time, even though the roads were treacherous. Dr said that I am healed and all looks well. Hard to imagine that my bone has grown into the titanium parts and that I am quite sturdy now. I was cautioned to keep from... Read more

Figured I should post my good news. After talking to a pharmacist about the timing of my drug changes, I called my surgeon's office and talked to His/my "angel" nurse*. I asked her to get me names of new primary care doctors, gyne's AND I'm F... Read more

Three weeks, two days and I went to my seasonal job today. I was scheduled a 9-1. That was a gyp. How will I make any money, if I'm going to work so few hours? It's a good thing that other people have a lot more sense than I do. I tend to g... Read more

This morning, there was a wonderful surprise at the end of my right leg. I had a foot that had veins showing on the top. Yeehaaa! Been awhile for that. The swelling is going down and I get better each day. The scale is also showing losses. ... Read more

I did not read about it and really never gave it a thought. I was shocked when I felt it and then saw it. I should have known it would happen, but I've never had this serious a surgery. So now, after enjoying family here over the holidays, ea... Read more

My surgery went well. I stayed in 2 nights instead of 3. My rehab at the hosp was easy enough. I think using the walker came pretty naturally after NEEDING to use it to get around at home before the surgery. I now have swelling in my right ... Read more

It's the morning after my Total Hip Replacement. I was given the med to "help relax" me yesterday and woke up in my room. It was all over. I'm sore but doing great. A little while from now, I will get up and start to learn how to do da... Read more

Update: I stopped wearing long sleeved shirts yesterday. I'm pretty sure my own body heat was aggravating the skin. I found a fresh tube of prescription cream I got for the "hand rash" last year. Did not shower...no need...wasn't like I w... Read more

Here it's Dec 2nd already...finally. I have much to do and as usually happens this time of year, I struggle to get it all done. I suppose I get some kind of holiday blues. I'm up about 5 lbs, but that is coming off slow but sure. ... Read more

Just wanted to take a few minutes to wish ALL my SP Friends a very nice and blessed Thanksgiving. It won't be easy to pass up some of the delights tomorrow, but then again, I'm not in this to deprive forever, just to learn to use caution. ... Read more
