I AM SO BLESSED!!!
I had such a great day yesterday. First I had to go get my lab work done....then to Conway for a wonderful birthday lunch with Kimberly, Lisa, Missy, Charlotte, Linda Y., Linda Mc., Edwina, Mandy and Breanna...I feel so spoiled and loved my first visit to Mike's Place...yum!! Kimberly, Breanna and I then went to my hip class. It was very informative. We got to see the implant and hold it. Found out that if I ever fly, will have to go to the airport early because of setting off the metal detector and will probably have to show them my scar! I will be able to walk after surgery, but no bending...for fear of the new hip popping out of the socket. When you have surgery or are ill, you really want to be at home in your own bed.,,,but sometimes you have to do what is best for your recovery. I have waited a long time to get this resolved. Since my hubby now works at night and I would be home alone, my gracious, awesome sister has arranged to be able to work from home and watch over me during my first days of recovery. Sisters are one of the most precious gifts in life...she is my rock, my pillow, my strength...she is always there for me. I will stay with her after I am released from the hospital until I am sure that I can maneuver and be alone. I also will have to have lab work done twice a week because of the blood thinners. I am sure that I will find plenty to do....it will be like living in a scrapbook store......I should be able to get all my Christmas cards and gifts made! After the hip class, Kimberly treated me to a hair cut and color....I want to look my best pushing my walker LOL! We ended the wonderful day celebrating with the Pajama Mamas....Breanna loved wearing her pajamas to IHOP! What a perfect little angel during such a busy day. When we left IHOP, she said "I think I need to lay down and take a nap." She slept on the way home, but never once complained about anything the whole day.....she is such a joy. I thank my wonderful sister and friends for such an awesome day...."I get by with a little help from my friends." Hip Hip Hooray.....only three more days!
