Well, today marks six months since my hip replacement surgery.... Certainly not something I was expecting to have to do before I turned 30. I've been doing really well. Pretty much NO pain except for the occasional twinge, and I'm walking better than I have in over 2 years. I know there were a lot of thoughts and prayers on my behalf from all of you, and I felt them, for sure! Even the therapists, nurses, doctor, and doctors assistants were amazed at my recovery.
It’s hard for me to believe that it’s been six months. Oddly enough it seems both a short and long time ago. Short because I find it hard to believe I’m doing so well in just six months, and long because when I look at all I’ve done since then (recovery, turning 30, my writing conference, the children’s musical, etc.) I can’t believe I’ve done all of that in only six months…. Seems like longer.
One last thing, on a related note. I'd love for you to "pass on" your prayers for my friend Beth and her recovery from her hip surgery. I mentioned her in my last post as her kids were the ones who sang at the Cardinals game. This is her second hip replacement in 10 years. She still can't even put weight on the leg, she'll have to do it all again for the other hip in a few months.
