RECOVERING

without comments

Here’s a picture of me on my first day home from the hospital:

First day home

Do I look unhappy?  Perhaps I was.

However, my recovery from the hip replacement has been rapid and remarkably pain-free. The Doc attributes this to the total replacement, metal-on-metal. I am getting around with only a cane, and expect to be able to abandon that soon. I will be going back to limited work starting the 13th, which should help pass the remaining weeks before the knee replacement takes place.

Here’s a picture of my scar (which I cannot see directly):

Scar

It was a "glue job", no staples or sutures

Meanwhile, despite the cool summer we’ve had here, I did get a nice crop of “Naked Ladies”, otherwise known as Amaryllis:

That’s all the news that’s fit to print, for the time being.
