The Long Ordeal Is Over! - Slowly Rolls The Stone
The Long Ordeal Is Over!
I promised I would check in from time to time on this blog with things of a more personal nature and I wanted to let some of my Old School Stoners in on something. As of around 10am on Thursday December 6th, I am the owner of a brand new, shiny hip joint. The relief has been immediate and I feel fantastic. I'm sore as hell and need the assistance of a walker to get around, but the pain that was shooting down my leg is gone. And I am thrilled. I cannot express how amazing I feel and just how happy I am.

Originally, the plan was to have the joint "resurfaced," but the hip was so bad, between bone spurs and a large cyst on the ball of the leg bone, that my ortho decided to do the full replacement. Same recovery time, just a different operation.

So, it's a new me. Once I'm cleared to exercise, I'm countng on dropping another 30 pounds. The next few months look exciting for me.

Writing wise, I'm still plugging away at SISTERS OF KHODA and hoping, with the time off, I'm going to finish it by the end of this week. When that's done, I'm hoping to do some short stuff and plan some 2013 projects.
