Wow. These hip replacements are a piece of cake. 🙂 Not really. After going through surgery on Tuesday and the pain being completely masked by morphine for the remainder of the day…..I thought I was golden. I had high hopes of being out the next day. Then Wednesday came. Ouch. Reality set in and I realized I wouldn’t be running the day after tomorrow. In fact, I didn’t know if I was ever going to be able to move again. That combined with a pesky fever, a plastic mattress and an inability to get comfortable led me to believe that my best days were behind me. Enter Thursday. A new day. Fever was gone, I was able to move around on crutches and I got discharged. It’s good to be out of the hospital. One step closer to normalcy.
