Hope you are able to relax and have a nice weekend knowing that Monday you will ridding yourself of that horrible hip pain.
I was beyond miserable and sleep deprived by the time I had my hips replaced and even though I was anxious. I was excited at the prospect of getting my life back.
And I did.:happydance:
See ya on the healing side!

I am sure the surgery is all done now. Congratulations on your shiny new hip and I hope you are resting comfortably with much ice and great pain management.
