My hip replacement recovery is going amazingly well. I had terrible nausea and vomiting while in the hospital and sometimes the pain was way more than I expected. Yet, I am amazed I am able to walk upstairs and sleep in my own bed each night. There is no formal at-home therapy. I just follow on-line videos from the doctor and lots of walking is prescribed. There are precautions to prevent dislocating the hip until the muscles heal. The doctor told me he did break the femur because it was narrow at the top and he cut two of the glute muscles. But all will heal with time.
From my resting spot on the sofa, butterflies, hummingbirds and fritillaries have put on a lovely show as I watch through the window.
Even on the day of surgery, the therapist got me out of bed and walking.
The pics on the left (in collage) were taken just before surgery. A bit of anxious silliness 🙂
Cheering for team USA in the 2016 Olympics and especially for Kelsi Worrell, a sweet young swimmer from our church with a strong Christian testimony. We love you Kelsi!!!!
