There is light at the end of the tunnel

Surgery is behind me. I'm having therapy 2 times a week. I am very sore most of the time but my hip doesn't hurt; just the muscles in my left leg. I'm not sorry I had the surgery but sometimes I wonder when I will feel really good again. I'm not a complainer but this has been a real trip for me. I still use the cane when I go out. I don't trust my balance yet.

Today after therapy I had so much pain so I thought I would visit from friends in the local nursing home. Seeing other peoples misery sometimes helps me to not feel sorry for my shelf.
I know my aches and pains will be behind me someday.

I've been wondering how you were doing. It takes a long time to be back to normal, but it'll happen.
Were you at my nursing home today? I was there till 5:30 and must have missed you if you were there. You're right about visiting others and taking the attention off yourself - it always helps.

I'm so glad to hear from you, Connie! I'm sorry that you are still suffering and hope that each day now you will feel improvement. Visiting others with difficulties always helps me put things in perspective, too! God bless you!

Hi Connie, I have been wondering how things are going with you. When you are in the middle of recovery, it does seem like you will never get better, but you do. After my surgery last summer, I thought that I would never be able to walk around the block again. Today I walked around the block three times. God has been faithful to me and I praise Him. He will be faithful to you too!
