This week has sure been busy, and this post is going live just a little late today. Where has the time gone? Let's take a look...
|Sunday evening - Check into hospital for hip replacement, |
and work on some pre-op knitting before bed.
|Monday morning - IV in, prepped for hip replacement surgery.|
|Monday afternoon - post-op knitting. Stuck in bed...and...ouch.|
|Monday evening - FINALLY in the chair! So happy! And...ouch.|
|Tuesday - get well carnation from Dr. Stanfield! Nice touch.|
A little less ouch, and I get to shower!
Also, knitting & napping, physical therapy...and...ouch.
|Wednesday morning - IV and catheter out, AND a shower!|
More physical therapy, and more knitting & napping.
|Wednesday afternoon - HOME!!! I guess White Cat missed me...|
|Wednesday evening - post-op knitting DONE!|
|Thursday - I guess BOTH cats missed me!|
|Black Cat: I didn't miss you. Did you bring me anything?|
|Friday - post-post-op knitting finished!|
|Saturday - post-post-post-op hat cast on!|
Between all the sitting, knitting & napping, there's been quite a bit of physical therapy, exercise on my own, visiting with friends, and lifting my leg. 0_o It's been a busy week indeed!
All in all, I am glad to have the surgery done and over. Even though I am in considerable pain more often that I want to be, I'm feeling strong, and I have quite a bit of energy! Met a great group of people in my surgery group at the hospital, and I had great nurses, therapists and other caregivers. If it wasn't for the pain (and waking up every two hours for a vitals check, around the clock), my hospital stay was almost like a vacation!
I'm still doing a bit of napping and a lot of knitting as I recover, but I thought I'd pop over to say hello to Blogland and officially claim my Hippie Status, now that I have a new, shiny, left hip!
Hello! I'm a Hippie...a pretty knitty Hippie...with a new hip! lol!
Surgery didn't cure me of the silly, I guess. I'll call that a good thing. :)
I may or may not be on the computer a little less than usual, but I'm still here, and I am well. I hope that you are also! Thanks for stopping by, and Knit in Good Health!
