The first week is past

I had my hip replacement surgery on January 18. I did every well with it. I came home again on Friday. I've had a fair amount of pain but it is getting better very day. I'm walking with the help of a walker and should be using the cane very soon. I am so glad surgery is behind me. My husband is taking very good care of me; doing the laundry and fixing mealsl etc. I still rest and sleep alot along with my exercises that need to be done 3 times a day. Hope everyone is having a fine day.

The first week is past.

Been gone to long.........

I haven't written anything on my blog for a long time. I'm dealing with a lot of pain and stress lately. I may have mentoned that I am set up for a total knee replacement on January 18. I am so uncomfortable most of the time. I don't sleep well. I now have trouble sitting, as well as standing, for any length of time.
Yesterday I had my pre-testing (ekg, chest x-ray, blood work, etc) done and also my husband and I went to a class to learn more about the surgery and recovery. I would like to" run the other way" at this point but I know I do need the surgery. I'm sure I will do okay. The waiting is hard........
