Ready or not here we come...........

Ron and I went to St. Anthony's hospital yesterday where I completed my pre-admission.  I had a CT scan, chest x-rays, EKG and blood drawn.  Then Ron and I attended the hip class (which did not make us any cooler than we already are) but we watched a film about the surgery and what to expect.  What was nice was they furnished a really nice boxed lunch for everyone in attendance.  

So........I guess we're ready!  We did find that the walker will not fit through our bathroom door.  This is something I'll talk to the therapist about in the hospital to see what we can do about the problem.

I'm nervous as heck but ready to get on with it!

You're not hipper?? Well, then, why bother? (LOL)

Good luck....I think you'll do quite well. Maybe the walker will fit sideways through the door?

Oh, boy, always something. Who would have thought about a doorway wide enough to accommodate a walker being a stumbling block until you have the experience. How long is the recovery period? Too long to hold it?

Good luck with your surgery and hoping for a quick, easy recovery.

When the walker wouldn't fit through the bathroom door a bedside commode became a fixture in our bedroom for six weeks. Thank goodness it wasn't the week when "Style at Home" did the photo shoot of our hovel for their "How the bottom half live" story.

Good luck Dani, here's to being back on your feet asap.

Hugs from Canader!
