    I have brought forward this month's list so that you can easily see who your surgical buddies are.


    Welcome to our latest and all September Sapphires!


    [​IMG]

    Feel free post your surgery date in this thread, and I will add you to the list. Start a thread of your own in the Pre-Op Hip Section to post comments and share your journey toward hip replacement. Here are the instructions you need to do this:

    To start a new thread, hover your mouse "Hip" on the blue line at the top of the page for the drop down menu. Click on the "Pre Op". On the upper right hand side under the "Joint Replacement Awareness Day" banner, you will see a black rectangle with the words "Post New Thread" in white. Click on this, enter whatever title you want for your thread, but do try to keep it short and sweet, then tab down to the dialogue box and start typing your post which can be as long as you need for it to be.

    By starting your own thread, you and your questions and concerns will receive the attention they deserve.

    Hi bottomshollow: You did not officially add my 9/9 left hip replacement date to the September list; my 7/12 request to be added was acknowledged by you, but the date was never added. If you could officially add my 9/9 date to your list, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks for your help, and enjoy your week! :)

    embarassed.jpg @Hipster64, actually I did put you on the September list when you requested it, but I mistakenly made the date the 15th. I have made the correction---as you can see if you scroll up the page to the actual surgery list. I have also added your second surgery date to your signature.

    Thank you bottomshollow; much appreciated. If there are any changes to the 9/9 date I will let you know. The OS saved the date for me but wants to monitor my right hip to ensure it's strong enough to take over for the left one.
