Happy One Year Anniversary!
Wishing your other hip wasn’t holding you back, with any luck it won’t be too much longer.
I hope you a lovely weekend and month of May. :SUNsmile:

Happy one year hipaversary my friend! Sorry I didn't post on the day, but yesterday all our neighbors had a big block party for VE day 75th celebration. I wish it stood for 'virus end' day but....hey ho. Actually we all had picnics on our respective front lawns at appropriate social distances, but it was so lovely to see everyone put up decorations and play music...we even had a Mr Whippy ice cream van come by for us! :dancy:But boy was my hip as well as my head :mcoffee: aching last night after all the activities! . Hope you had a great day, celebrating with your family and shiny bionic body. Cheers to you!! :cheers2: Here's to a new year when hopefully number two gets some titanium too. X

It’s good to hear from you, @ChrissyW We are all navigating strange times indeed. Some days I wish I’d wake up and realize it was all a bad dream.

You're coming up on fourteen months post op already on Saturday, July 4th, a big holiday on this side of the pond. I hope you’ve been well and you’re enjoying life with your new hip. Have a wonderful Summer and don't be a stranger here. :)

Hey @Mayhip8 :wave:
It’s been awhile since we’ve heard from you. Hope you’re hanging in there and not in too much pain. Let us know when you schedule, Righty. We’ll be here for support.
Until then...enjoy the Summer!

Was so glad to see some posts from old friends! Just saw my OS for a 1 year and he said my xrays look great. Says he'll see me in 4-6 YEARS unless I need to see him!
I have the occasional leg pains which he tells me is from the cutting but I dont regret having them done. @Calgal I've got my garden kneeler and making up for lost time. Hope @ChrissyW and @Mayhip8 are thriving, and all the bonesmarties. Maybe we should revive the old trips-- they're probably the safest ones to take right now. Be safe and be well :flwrysmile:

How lovely to hear from you @ahipgma , @Calgal and @Layla . Hope our travel buddy @Mayhip8 is doing well too. Imagine we are 14 months in and seems like we are living Groundhog Day with the lockdown. I'm presuming @Calgal your in the same place as me with lockdown relaxation rules but I've only had my first visit to a retailers today as hubby fancied the trip but with online shopping (and oh hiw I have online shopped) I'm in no rush to resume what many think is 'alls good we are back to normal' pubs and bars may be opening this weekend but I'd rather not, maybe next weekend to a reliable restaurant where I know social distancing will happen. Hiw about the rest of you? Have you been more confident than I am? What's the situation over the pond with you @ahipgma and @Layla? I have had to go in to work on Frudays but I'm much happier with all the online teaching. The students have, on the whole, been fantastic and some really didn't want to go in for the meeting as they are scared. One lively young lady felt physically sick leaving her house and I had a number of conversations to support but it is hard when you know exactly why she is feeling like she is. Our town may end up with a second localised lock down as numbers are increasing but there are so many flouting the rules, in fact one pub in the area had a'small party'(!!!) last week. It really makes me angry after so many of us have sacrificed so much for 4months that others have a couldn't care less attitude! Anyway rant over. What cooking have all you lovelies been doing? You know I'm no baker but I've perfected a whisked fatless sponge cake and it's been a firtnightly treat, not just to eat but to successfully bake! Miss our chats and our virtual vacations (especially as hubby and I had booked a Cannes holiday for May that was cancelled) @ahipgma what happened with your Italy trip?
Big hugs to you all and hopefully we can catch up again soon, not leaving it so long xxx

So,so good to hear from you @ChrissyW ! I hope @mayhip is doing ok.
Our country is all over the place ( as it is very large) with how in and out of lockdown we are.
Where I live in Pennsylvania we stepped back a little too because cases were increasing
Last Wednesday my daughter (a nurse)was diagnosed with Covid and she had been with us a day prior
We (hub and I) are 7 days into quarantine and doing ok. Daughter only 25 years old, has a mild case but she still felt pretty rotten the first few days but we are SO thankful it wasnt any worse.
As quarantine we cant really leave our house at all so I'll be cooking some pretty creative meals as our food supply wanes. I know what you mean about Groundhog day -- which by the way the real one takes place in a little town about 3 hrs drive from my house.
Keep in touch and be well! :friends: virtual hug is safe :ok:4

Good to hear from you, @ChrissyW I’m a bit further west of ahipgma but echo what she’s said. There are ups and downs all over the country. Can’t keep it all straight. Since you asked, I’m putting a lot of faith in my immune system, but certainly don’t believe I’m invincible by any means. Like most everyone, I do a lot of hand sanitizing and don’t touch my face when I’m out. The virus has not held me captive inside...so far. Who knows what tomorrow may bring. :fingersx: It’s getting old, that’s for sure and I, like everyone else, just want things to be normal again.

First we missed you and now we miss Mayhip since we haven’t heard from her in almost two months. I would have posted on your thread, but it seems you all hang out here. With any luck Mayhip‘s hip is holding up and she’s not in too much pain.
Happy Fourteen Month Anniversary, Chrissy.
Be safe and stay well!

@Mayhip8 Hi :hi: I hope you have a good week!

@ahipgma I hope your daughter gets well soon.

Sorry to read this, Mayhip, I hope all is not lost because it would have been lovely to hear from you, it’s been too long. I think of you three often when I see any one of you posting and then wonder how your non op hip is doing. Hope to hear from you soon! :)

Below is the info received from Admin when questioning if a post ever goes missing -

Yes, it usually happens when a member forgets to hit the post reply button. It can also happen if the poster accidentally highlights an area of text and then hits the backspace.

If you realise you have just lost a block of text you can hit the undo icon

What is restored depends on how recently the draft has been saved.

Does this member work from a phone or a computer?


A TIP FOR YOU, MAYHIP -

An option to make use of if you’re typing a long post is to hit the save draft icon so all is not lost.
