Hip op'

For all of you who follow Moannie -'The View from this end' here is an update on her progress.
Her hip surgery was Monday. She was aghast at the fact she had to be there for the ungodly hour of 6.30-7AM!! But got there she did. Yesterday was day 2 and I spoke to Dad, aka JP for news last night, as he had visited in the afternoon. He said as she was still rather drugged up with morphine, lucky thing, he said it wasn't worth ringing as she might fall asleep, in a narcoleptic fashion mid sentence.

Today I rang her about an hour ago and she sounded bright and fairly lucid considering!

She is in a lot of pain, but even so she has been walking with supervision. She'll be home in a few days and no doubt she will have much to say to you all soon.

  6. My mum had hers a few years ago and I can't believe how well people do after. It's a huge operation, and yet everyone I know thanks god they had it done. It will probably be a bit rough at first but I hope she's feeling good soon. And that Disabled Parking sticker comes in really handy. Make sure she gets one of those.

  12. Give her our best wishes. From what I hear hip ops are so routine these day. Therefore hope she will be leaping around with the "Eleven Lords a-leaping" by Christmas. x

  14. I feel for you, my mother in her 70s also recently had surgery. My main reason for wring is I was so glad to find your blog. I just turned 50 and am new to blogging. I have had trouble finding blogs written by folks that are driving down my particular road.

Thanks for stopping by!

Take the weight of your feet, draw up a chair and pour yourself a cuppa. Leave your troubles at the door and together we shall ride out the storms.
I will walk a while in your shoes...
