I do know that a good dose of positivity takes you a long way. I’m not saying it’s a “cure” but it helps you to manage what is going on in your life and max out the life you live. I have recently spent a huge amount of positivity pre and post op. Bilateral hip replacements. The look on everyone’s face when I say that I’ve had both hips replaced. The retort is always “Both?” “At the same time?” Well, ummm yes!
On the craft front I had lots of projects ready to complete or even start and what I Have I done? Very little! A small amount of knitting and a shed load of planning. I’m great at planning, dreaming and thinking. Maybe just maybe I’m turning the corner as today I went to Craft Group. I WALKED there and back! A bit of a mini marathon on the hip front but a move forward nerve the less.
I really enjoy my craft group who are supportive and inspiring so I came away ready to craft and complete Well we will see!
Today is day 4 post op from a bilateral hip replacement surgery. In all honesty I could have gone home from hospital today but it’s all about confidence. Mobility and independence are the name of the game so I am on target to go home tomorrow.
Bed remote control, TV remote control mobile phone charger, note book, pen, hand cream are all essential items for ward life along with a good book, magazines, crutches, shoe horn and “helping hand” are also necessary. To name some of the detritus that am surrounded by essential for my surgical recovery.
I wasn’t going to write about this but it does help to share.
On Saturday I had a Bi lateral Hip Replacement. My mobility was dreadful and the pain very difficult. However the future is bright. I am now the bionic woman and recovering slowly. It is not common to have both hips done at once but I decided that it was a good plan because:-
So here I am wrapped in a cocoon of care, recovering slowly but surely. I have decided that slowly but surely will get a much better outcome. I keep being told that it is a “marathon not a sprint” My approach is one of positivity. I know that thinking positively brings positive results! Watch this space.
I will keep you up to date
- One anaesthetic
- One recovery time ( but protracted)
- One worry pre op Because I would have had to have 2 separate operations
- Able to return to normal life quicker
Hi guys life on a cruise ship is never boring. (If it is it’s your fault) !
Today is my first day of my first cruise with SAGA Ok the ship is full of golden oldies but what an enthusiastic lot! I’m not working and I am actually enjoying a holiday with Hubs and have the time to attend other activities!
please note that this is NOT Hubs!
Mr Motivator (AKA Derrick Evans) is a guest speaker on board!
This is a gift for me as I prepare for bilateral hip replacements in a few weeks. Mr Motivator is certainly active, enthusiastic and positive! I’m also able to swim daily, well excercise my legs and hips! Just what the doctor ordered!
