    April 4th is my date! Excited! Scared! Nervous! Hopeful!
    I'm gathering my equipment but the thing I'm worrying about most is getting in the car to go home. One car is a SUV and I will have to climb up in that. The other car is low and I'm not sure I can get down into that one. Maybe I'll have to rent a car.

    Hi, that's so annoying. It so hard to get emotionally ready then have surgery postponed. I'm in the early stages. So only recently got diagnosed as having severe osteoarthritis in my left hip and mild in my right. I've opted for a replacement in the left now to save the right which I'm sure will need doing eventually. Keep your chin up. It'll come round quickly.

    Have removed you from the March list----having to wait is a bummer, but use the time wisely to be even more ready for recovery!

    Thanks for the welcome! 3 weeks and 2 days to go. I seem to be getting more debilitated as the time is drawing near. Of course I'm nervous but it has to be done!. I wish the best of everything to all my fellow April Rainbows!
