I can't believe it has already been a month since I limped into the hospital for my surgery. As I type this, I am feeling much better, but I have surely had my days of frustration, and wondering why I decided to do this. Some days, I wonder when the surgery pain will end. Mind you it isn't horrible pain, and I stopped taking the pain killers a week ago. I'm not really even taking any over the counter stuff, but I think I may, as today my back is killing me. I really can't wait to get some water aerobics going again to strengthen my core.
I'm not using the walker as I think I already mentioned, and I can almost get around without the cane in the house. I think by the end of May, I may be able to get rid of the cane altogether. Hopefully sooner.
It sure is tough being in the house all day, especially on these nice days, where you want to get in the car and go see what is going on out in the world.
Sleeping has become much better, I can now lie on my side.
The thing that is freaking me out though, is that every once in a while, I feel something adjusting in the socket area, and I hope to god that it is just muscles that haven't quite tightened up around the new hip joint.
This spring season is truly a renewal for me with a future of being able to do more, and not have to worry about where I park, sit, etc.
I just need to be patient, and let things get stronger.
Today, I'm going to start on my Easter centerpiece project, that I will show you soon.
Hope everyone is enjoying these first days of spring.
