Ok so the grand event (total hip replacement) is over .
A few things to share:
1. I'm glad it's over
2. I had a great surgeon
3. The mental and physical prep work helped
4. I am thankful that Ken was here to help me, cause I think I was a pain in the ass for the first few days
Now reflection time and how to get back to recovery:
So despite I am recovering the world does not stop spinning, meaning work moves forward along with the several hundred emails a day. Some I really just want to tune out. I will call it selective recovery, Oh my eyes my eyes!! The. Optic nerve is now connected to my hip.
One big mistake I made was to step on the scale. I think after seeing that number I developed a migraine
I know I know its temporary. It's swelling. I said it was a mistake to get on the scale!!
The orthopedic stockings totally do not go with anything in my closet. I tried to pair them up with my leopard flats and that didn't work
Another diversion I had was to read gossip pages. Hmm Jennifer Aniston's biggest worry is that she looks better than Angelina Jolie on her wedding day. My biggest worry is that I will land on the toilet seat when I lower myself. I guess we are worlds apart!!
The pills. I needed to resort to color coding to keep track, how do the elderly master this feat???
Oh wait I am the elderly!!
Despite my moaning and groaning I am glad I made the decision.
Wait, who am I kidding I really had no choice It was this or learn how to crawl faster.
So there you have it.
Rebuilding my body to take on my next challenge.
