Update: Surgery Canceled

News arrived! All samples were good, meaning it is again time for surgery: this Wednesday, All-Saints’ Day, at 6:30 AM (ugh! I’m not a morning person). After removing the cement block and cleaning out the area, a sample (not exactly sure of what) goes off to a lab. Hopefully a very fast lab. If–when–it returns infection-free, the operation continues and a new, titanium hip will finally be mine! Just need to decide between general anesthesia and a nerve-block (staying awake for the festivities). Used a nerve-block on the other hip, replaced three-years ago, but at 6:30 in the morning I may be too tired to stay awake.

I think this has been one of the longest, and strangest, surgeries. Hoping to walk up the new wheelchair ramp and into my own door on Friday. THEN, Jonathan comes home. The poor boy has lived next door since June, where someone could let him outside to do what dogs do outside.

There are many wonderful books to share with you. Some you may already know about, still, a good story deserves a second chance to catch your attention. Give me a few days of physical therapy, one more to clean up my messy house, and a day of catch-up kisses with Jon, and then please stop by for new reviews. And thank you for not running off with a new reviewer. It would break my heart.

  1. Hopefully the insurance issue is a minor blip. In fact, hopefully it’s already been resolved and you’re in the pleasant haze of anesthesia. Most hopefully, though, the procedure is a resounding success and your legs will be walking as fast as your fingers will be typing your latest reviews.

  2. Run off??? NEVER! Mom taught me not to do that. You and Jonathan have been so brave through all this. The only running that will be done will be YOU, after some physical therapy, of course. Good luck. Prayers and happy healing thoughts are headed your way, as always.

    Love and licks,

  3. So happy you are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. You’ve really had a rough time. Good luck with the surgery. It will be good to see you back reviewing books. We’ve missed you! Books need all the PR they can get with the fierce competition.
    My husband has been dealing with an infected toe that he nearly lost. Still not out of the woods.
