Is it just me? There seems to be a quite a few new members joining in the past month or so. I think it is GREAT!! As far as the $$$ value of our SSRs, who gives a rats a***!

I am not one to start a lot of threads but I am at home recovering from hip replacement surgery so have a little more extra time on my hands....lol. If anyone is out there holding off for any reason just do it. Recovering is easy peasy if you follow the exercise program and you don't do the don'ts. I imagine it could be a financial burden to some of you south of the border and that is really sad/too bad.

Have great day cruzin where ever you are....top down permagrin...

Talk about hip surgery....my wife Marsha had hip replaced in 1985 and has danced ballet 4 days every week since then. But then she is remarkable.

The recovery has been amazing, way better than I expected. Hips are easier than knees however so I am told. I had the surgery Feb 15th, was off all painkillers two weeks later, except for headaches I am getting for some reason. Just dealing with some swelling after I am up and about for a few hours. I am still using the walker later in the day when my foot/lower leg gets swollen otherwise on crutches around the house and out in the garage.

That's why I say if you are scared of the recovery, don't let it worry you or hold you back.

The biggest hold up is that you can not bend past 90 degrees for 3 months to prevent dislocation of the new upper joint until it heals/grows in. This prevents me from driving for another 2 months which kinda sucks....because of my height I need to bend myself into every vehicle I drive....

I'd pay good money to see Tory in a tutu doing pirouettes on his tippy toes.>:)
