Yesterday Spring started. Here in the coastal Pacific Northwest, meaning west of the mountains, we are lucky enough to find Spring right on schedule. Our Pacific maritime climate keeps our weather moderate enough to give us four distinct seasons with none of them severe.
So the Brazen Hussies are starting to bloom!They are the bright yellow flowers with almost black leaves, one of several types on Ranunculus (think Buttercups) that will run rampant in our yard if we let them. They are brazen, and I just like saying their names. We actually bought the starts years ago and sometimes wish we hadn't, but they are so bright and cheery when direct sunlight opens them up. I have a matched set now!
My appointment with my surgeon yesterday went well. Everything is where it's supposed to be and the incision is healing. When I described the pain I felt he knew just what it was. It was a tiny tendon letting go. This little tendon gets cut on order to install the artificial hip and then is gets repaired, but often the repair, which is just a few threads, doesn't hold, and, like a rubber band that breaks, it snaps. Ouch! It stings for a good little while, and then it settles down. It did create a good "hematoma" in the process. Keep icing. It will heel itself over.
So progress on my hip is coming along. Now I have messed up my right knee, which we knew was going bad and is next on the list.
I'll just keep on going, best as I can.
It's Spring! Tomorrow might even be kinda' warm.
So happy you had a good visit and that the tendon pain will go away eventually. It is a process. Be kind to yourself!ReplyDelete
Everything is looking good! Wonderful months to look forward to.ReplyDelete
Yes you do indeed have a matched set. And glad to hear the pain will heal itself without any further intervention, other than icing and resting. And thanks for the wonderful daffy blossoms, looking so gorgeous on your header! :-)ReplyDelete
Every odd little twinge ups the stress level whether it's needed or not. So good that things are actually going the right way.ReplyDelete
Glad everything is ok! So you have the two hips done now. My knees are not too good , my husband says I should have knee’s surgeries some day… not keen on the idea!ReplyDelete
The flowers colour is very nice and bright spring colour.
You (and my DIL) both seem to be doing well after your hip replacement surgery. So happy to hear that.ReplyDelete
The flowers are lovely. Glad to year your hip is healing well.ReplyDelete
Always good to have a matched set;)ReplyDelete
Cool photo of your matched pair. I see you even smiled for the picture! (I'd always tell my patients to smile for the picture when they were being rolled to x-ray.) Hope your knee holds out until maybe after summertime. Linda in KansasReplyDelete
Glad that you are healing well.ReplyDelete
Nice matched set! More flexibility and less pain will be coming before long.ReplyDelete
Amazing how "robotics" can help us live and be active longer. You are a great patient and i am sure the Doctor's like that. My knee joint is giving me some issues as is my left hip. No surgery in the future, yet.ReplyDelete
I'm so happy to hear you're getting well now, Linda. I hope the pain completely goes away soon.ReplyDelete
