My New Hip and Hop Party....

Day seven...I am back...
Ready now....set go....

Wow....pain galore...I cannot believe that I am now through the hardest part.
Surgery last Monday morning brought a new hip, tons of pain, fear....
A bone bleed that required a blood transfusion and 5 extra days in the hospital. for anemia.
I just could not see the light..
Lucky me...saw old friends, met new friends...and once again, survived.
These friends have warmed my heart.
I am on some pretty heavy pain medications every 4 hours.
Today, the pain broke..and I was able to move around enough to sew. without screaming.
I could not have  made it without the support of my blogging friends..xo
Today, I was able to rest outside on this glorious day.
My girl asked what I would like to eat.
I said Oreos.....I think our definition of comfort food is different..
 Here are 21 pot-luck travel covers...tute on front of my blog.
I had these all prepped for threading the elastic from a sitting position..like now.
 Pinned the hand warmers for teachers..
If I continue to improve like this...(knock on wood), I will sew these together tomorrow
after physical therapy.  I am grateful that  my PT will come to me.
She is the same one one that I had for my knee,  which is very nice.
Wonderful Rachel turned up at the hospital with Hugs and Kisses..
I love you Rachel.
Now, my girl found them and Hugs and Kisses are being rationed...
I am so happy. the surgery is over.
I am so happy to have hope again.
I am so happy to have a daughter like my Emily.
I am so happy to once again...see the light.

Rationing just means you'll have more reminders that I'm sending hugs and kisses. ��

Good Morning, dear friend! You have been in my thoughts and prayers and it's good to hear that you are as "spunky" as usual. Keep on "keepin' on" and you will marvel at how a pain-free hip (or hips in my case) make your life better! Chin up, pretty lady...
