It has been almost six weeks since my surgery, my third total
replacement on the same hip and hopefully this time is
It is still hard to judge. I will be seeing my surgeon
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
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.
