Firstly, I want to thank you for all the loving support and healing I’ve been gratefully receiving since I had my hip replacement revision operation in March. The messages, cards, flowers, calls, texts, visits have been just amazing and I feel truly blessed to be cared for by so many.
I’ve passed the milestone of 6 weeks post op now and I’m pleased to report that it’s been another successful operation. I’m feeling so fortunate to live in a part of the world where this procedure is safe, well practiced and available.
To be honest, the upper most thing on my mind has been having a shower! Lol! Mine is over the bath, and I’ve not been able to climb in since the op – and guess what? As of yesterday I managed it! Woohoo! Bunting and banners! Don’t get me wrong, I have been washing – but nothing beats feeling the water cascading over you! It’s lovely!
Having time out has not only given me time to heal, it’s opened my eyes to the things I take for granted each day, things I can usually physically do without thinking about – and it’s given me a greater appreciation for the simple things.
What are you grateful for?
