    Hi everyone
    New England is having a run of beautiful weather. So good to be with family. @Calgal, yes '56 was a very good year for good strong women. You are the kid of the three of us and have yet to have your birthday whereas miss @Elf1 and I are ONE day apart! What are the chances!?
    Thanks @lotusbuds and @mikeycat, I'm doing limited stuff at the gym but trying to be in a little bit better shape going for my next one. Mikeycat you are my hero for doing the bilateral. I could not imagine it but there you are moving right along!:walking:

    Gosh thanks dear @Mojo333
    I just got off the elliptical at the gym.
    Every time this new hip comes thru for me and the bad old one hurts, I marvel and thank God for this life changing surgery. I can only imagine you felt this way many many times in the past 2 years.
    The future looks rosy in your crystal ball!!!:happydance::egypdance::ok:

    If you can manage to do some exercise beforehand, @ahipgma, I think you'll find it will pay off. It did for me last time and I'm hopeful that it will be of benefit this time around, too. I love the elliptical! Sure, it was at a very low resistance and speed, but trying to do something every day without hurting myself meant I was so much more able to maneuver post-surgery. I still lumbered, but getting in and out of bed, hoisting myself out of a chair, and even standing up straight to walk were all made easier by some pre-surgery exercise. Hang in there--August is just around the corner!

    @barbara I wasn't a gym rat or anything but would go faithfully till I could barely do the elliptical and it did help post op.
    Goodness, this is your week! Will follow along and keep you in my prayers!
