OK, so you know the saga of trying to have my hip replaced? The surgery scheduled and then canceled, and then a new Dr, but no 2016 date, but then miraculously, they got me on the 14th of Dec. So, all is running smoothly. I left Indy last week to come home to attend a joint camp and get all my pre-testing done last Thursday. And then Saturday morning I started feeling sick. Thought it might be my ear causing imbalance. Ate crackers, felt better. Then 5:00 that evening it was clear this was no ear issue. Stomach bug. 4 DAYS BEFORE MY SURGERY!!! 36 hours later, relief. Bug seems to be gone.
So here we are, 2 days before surgery. Dr’s office calls. Seems my blood work shows I have a bladder infection. Well you could have fooled me because I do not feel like I have a UTI! You would think I would know. Right? Evidently not. Now I am thinking, they are going to cancel my surgery!!!! But no, she just prescribed a med and I will start taking that tonight.
So now, is there anything else which is going to try and throw a wrench in the works? Please reveal yourself now, don’t wait until the last minute!!! LOL. It’s a good thing I can laugh at all this, otherwise I would be crying all day long.
I guess I don’t have to tell you knitting is a thing of the past right now? And I have 1 sweater still to finish and 4 hats I wanted to get done by Christmas. Oh well, there’s more important things going on right now.
Wish me luck, I won’t be back here until after surgery and recovery. Unless I just get so bored I hop on the phone and update. But with all the PT they have warned me about, it doesn’t look like I will have much free time on my hands. If it gets me back on my feet quickly I will do it! The last 40 hours of inactivity has been boring!!! I couldn’t even read online because tracking with my eyes made me sick. I couldn’t watch TV, do puzzles, knit, or even open my eyes. All I could do was sleep or lay so still as to not unsettle my stomach. But man, the dreams I had were vivid and hilarious! Wish I could have narrated them as they happened and sold the stories as a movie script. One had a very Transformer vibe. HAHAHA!!! It was ridiculous!
OK, signing off. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!! The year’s tally is all screwed up, so who even knows if I will have a year end update. I kind of really don’t care at this point.
