Wonderful to hear, Dogmother. It is a comfort and encouragement to hear from the medical professionals, in person, that your progress is good. I’m happy you’re elated!
A great Thursday to you as you continue healing! :)

@Dogmother GREAT report from nurse!!! Glad you feel better about both incision and walking now.
You asked, hopefully it will get better? My PT told me, hip recovery averages 50 weeks. Given you still have 48 of those to improve in (all by itself your body does this, it's amazing...), I would certainly hope it will get better! It has for an awful lot of hippies here, including me!

I had a thought when I was stretching yesterday: the older hip, at 7, is easier to stretch in a certain way than the younger one, only 3. I wonder if in another 4 years the younger hip will be where the elder one is now. Bearing in mind of course the four birthdays the rest if my body will experience! :heehee:

Thank you @Dogmother yes all is well! Other than a hurricane bearing down on a house we own in Tidewater Virginia that is. Nobody currently lives there, and the yard has seen worse, but hurricanes are notoriously unpredictable!
