The countdown begins!

Just an update on what's going on in my world!  Ron and I met the surgeon who is going to perform my operation last Friday and I really liked him.  Ron didn't think he was old enough to be a doctor but everybody looks young to us these days. 

Dr. P.  answered all my questions and was very, very personable. He really put my mind at ease and I'm excited to proceed with surgery.  The next two weeks are going to go by fast. 

This Thursday we go to St. Anthony's and I have another MRI, EKG, chest x-rays and blood work.  Then we go across the street to Bone & Joint and attend a "Hip" class.  I asked the doctor if that was going to make Ron and I cool......but he said no.

Then I pre-admit at St. Anthony's on June 10th with surgery on June 11th.

I have just about covered everything I need to cover with my replacement here at the hospital.  I think she will do fine.  If not at least I won't be here to see it. 

My wonderful, sweet, husband cleaned our house yesterday like a professional.  He moved all the furniture and cleaned behind it and under.  Scrubbed the bathroom tile and cleaned all the floors and there isn't a cobweb to be found anywhere.  He even finished cleaning the rest of the windows.  He kept saying that he knew I'd be stressed if I saw cobwebs when I got home from surgery.  He's the best!

I'm ready to reclaim my mobility and my life!

Looks like you are in good hands, both at the hospital and at home! Too bad those classes won't make the two of you "hip" but I think our time for that kind of "hip" has come and gone. LOL

But the wait is almost over!

Hip-hip-hooray!

Hugs from Canada!

The time will go quickly now that it is down to the last few weeks. How sweet of Ron to give everything a spit shine.
