          @Jaycey, just think...tomorrow around this time, it will all be over! Can't wait to welcome you, again, to the other side! As @Me2 mentioned, you certainly deserve an easy recovery! Here's hoping!!

              Guess you'll be ready for these then!

              First are the BoneSmart mantras ....
              - rest, elevate, ice and take your pain meds by the clock
              - if it hurts, don't do it and don't allow anyone - especially a physiotherapist - to do it to you
              - if your leg swells more or gets stiffer in the 24 hours after doing it, don't do it again
              - if you won't die if it's not done, don't do it
              - never stand when you can sit, never sit when you can lie down, never stay awake when you can go to sleep!
              - be active as much as you need to be but not more than is necessary, meaning so much that you end up being in pain, exhausted or desperate to sit down or lay down!

              Pain management and the pain chart
              Healing: how long does it take?
              Chart representation of THR recovery
              Dislocation risk and 90 degree rule
              Energy drain for THRs
              Pain and swelling control: elevation is the key
              Activity progression for THRs
              Home physio (PT)
              Post op blues is a reality - be prepared for it
              Myth busting: on getting addicted to pain meds
              Sleep deprivation is pretty much inevitable - but what causes it?

                                  I agree with you Jamie, we need to know how everything is. We all can send all the positive waves and then keep our computers on 24 hours a day until we hear. Love ya! Remember the mottos and remember we need to know how you are so we can :happydance::yay::spin::dancy: and then celebrate all together. Hope to hear soon.
