WOW! Had I known the end results ahead of time, I would've had surgery 10 years ago!!
On Tuesday it will be the 4 weeks since Dr. John Wild, Jr. performed a complete hip replacement for me. It was an amazing journey and one I would like to share with you.
Tucson Orthopaedic Institute is a state-of-the-art medical facility dedicated to fixing bones, and joints which need fixing.
Oh, the aesthetics and views weren't bad either!

Once home, my "angels of mercy" made recovery speedy! Here's me at one week Post-Op....
Thank you all SO much for your prayers, good wishes, cards, sweets, spa lovelies, and beautiful flowers ~ you made everything so special.
You might have noticed a pretty bag on my walker ~ my sweet, talented friend and neighbor, Debbie, made this for me! I'm going to miss it when I no longer need the walker....I could put everything in it!!
A beautiful plant from my Roach "sister" and "daughters" in Phoenix...
And a sweet from sweet Katherine in Toronto, Canada!
How can I adequately thank my friends who gave up their time to spend with me in the early weeks of recovery? I can't...all I can say is that I'm there for you when you need me ~ new hip and all!
Well, I think my progress has been Heaven sent when I think back to the first day....
And where I am today...
|Working on jewelry!!|
I know it won't be long before I can resume an exercise routine...
Ride a bike with a friend...
Or get back to dancing...
In the meantime, I'm spending a little time each day at the workbench with my jewelry. The Trunk Show is set for Sunday, November 16th at 1:00. I hope to see you there!
Have an exceptional week and thanks for stopping by!
