It has been almost six weeks since my surgery, my third total
 hip replacement on the same hip and hopefully this time is
 successful. It is still hard to judge. I will be seeing my surgeon
 this coming Thursday and only then will I have an idea about
 success (or not).

Life is becoming easier as I go along. Each day
 I find a little relief - for example being able to finally get into the
 tub and have a shower without fear, walking more and more with
 just a cane and generally being more independent again. It's been
 a bad year for me so far with the fall and breaking my lower
vertebraes in January. I must admit that the pain of a broken
 vertebrae in the lower back is much worse than hip surgery.

But what really shocks me is the lack of interest I have since both
 the accident and now my hip surgery. With the exception of
checking my email, I am rarely using the computer and it saddens
 me because I loved waking up in the morning with impatience to
 start working on some digital art pages or writing and journaling.
 I seem to have lost my muse or my mojo. Whichever it is, I am most
 certainly not motivated at all.

So much has happened since one of my previous postings and my rather extended silence since. It all started with my new kitchen. I am delighted with it but of course on hindsight, I should have had it installed AFTER my surgery rather than before. It is unbelievable just what you find when you need to need to clean out your old kitchen cabinets. Amazing 'stuff' to be found tucked away in corners.

I still have not put all my kitchen 'stuff' back because after complete installation
I had my third major surgery, another total hip replacement. Walls and finishes
will just have to wait a little longer.

dear oh dear, I am remiss in not updating my blog. Believe me, I am working on it but life has taken over right now and my heart is not in it. I took some photos of my ugly scar but have not bothered uploading any and each day seems to add more challenges to my already overloaded basket of tasks. Will try and do better perhaps tomorrow. Thank you all for your prayers and thoughts.
