We are in transition here. The putting away of Christmas has begun.
The Santas are packed up and the pottery collection is back in place.All the glitter and bright color is gone from the dining room.
The only things left are the tree and the garlands in the kitchen. They will go tomorrowThursday morning I will go see my surgeon. Saturday morning I will get my COVID test.
Monday I will go to out patient surgery to get my right hip replaced. Monday evening I will come home. Tuesday a physical therapist will make the first of four visits. I have phone numbers to call if we need help.
Yes, both Tom and I are a little scared, but we are preparing. I got this bed tray for Christmas.
Amazon has delivered two of these. My walker is parked in a spare bedroom.
My check lists are getting checked.
It's not going to be fun being grounded, but I haven't been able to do much lately anyway, although I still manage to walk 1.25 miles almost every day.
I know recovery will be hard work, and painful.
Come July I'm hoping for hip-hip-hooray!
