    Look I told you ...you need something to groan about! Or maybe laugh! When you live alone and things don’t go right, either you laugh or cry or do both. Best to see the funny side! I am tired today but bread is rising. I have walked with the dogs through the snow...less trouble this morning...

I decided enough was enough. I had already asked someone about removing the pad.. So I removed it...

    Good morning to you! my southern beauty!! I have been thinking of my shoulders, too. I think mine started because I worked from the age of 9. Picking up wagon loads of rocks and pulling them uphill.. Then later with a chainsaw and clearing the sprouts/saplings, weed sling on three acres of...

    24 16.1 oz bottles per case...5-7 of them handled 3 times before their final stop. Makes for a tiresome day but I have not noticed hip swelling. The cases are two handed so that might have something to do with it. This house is step level so it means 3 steps up..one at a time . My dolly would...

    If I remember to take the magnesium I don't have the cramps. I know of a certainly that I have a hip made by man. But the swelling is gone if I do not do certain things. Weight is the worse thing. But every once in a while I have to carry weight...like when I buy water. But I do better if I...

    Honestly, I do not know! On my surgery I was asked NO questions about anything. X-rays showed a shattered femur neck , he said the ball and socket were all right but they would replace it. He said he would do minimal surgery and I would be up and walking out of surgery. Sure...I would have but I...

    The more posts I read the more puzzled I get. My surgeon told me... Then another my surgeon told me ...exactly opposite Maybe 1/2 dozen different remarks for the same type of surgery. Same about breaks... I walked two days after surgery...or none weight bearing for 6 weeks , and on it goes...

    No it is warm today but it was NOT warm when I stopped burning wood. Eman, I can not load wood without it bothering my hip. Really I do want to get better and this has not helped. I do have propane but it is hard to give up 50 years of burning wood! I know you have just had your second hip...

    Layla, Mojo333, and everyone else!! I feel I have made another milestone. Would that be the correct word? I slept a good part of the night on my right hip! Something I have not been able to do because of the swelling. No swelling in my hip!! Another first and it has been 20 months. Yes I...

    This too shall pass. It is just for a little while! You are healing every day and soon the pain will be less. You will leave the health aides behind!!! Try watching a movie ... The Bells Of Saint Mary’s. Seen that one recently? Or maybe not your cup of tea? The library? Wishing you the best and...
