Friday last he underwent a total hip replacement (outpatient, no less!) and his recovery is nothing short of remarkable. Approximately an hour and a half after the procedure the nurse had him up and walking. He’s gone to Physical Therapy twice, had visitors, walked around the house, watched movies, played guitar, made us popcorn and sampled some of the delicious food we have been provided from dear and caring friends.
He is an amazing man, a compliant patient.
Again, we find ourselves the recipients of meals, visits and offers of help.
I have much more to write of this journey, but not today. One thing I continue to learn as we navigate the aging process is that I must take care of myself, if I am to take care of others.
Prayers are still appreciated and gratefully accepted on our behalf. As I have mentioned repeatedly I am not a fan of doing this medical stuff!
