Today has been a better day for me. Thank you to all of you for your support. I am still sore, still loopy from oxycodone, but got a little more flexibility today.
Two of my quad muscles are still pretty swollen (vastus medialus, rectus femorus for u medical geeks)and makes my leg look weird, but the strength is slowly building too.
My view from my hospital bed
The pain I feel is primarily in my femur and not my hip. I can definitely feel the implant. It’s cool and weird at the same time.
One of my great nurses
The hiccups are managed now, though I lost my voice yesterday from saying “hiccup” a thousand times.
I look forward to working out with my home nurse more and slowly weaning off of the oxy soon.
Again, thank you all for the support, prayers and well wishes.
Time to shut my eyes.
