perfect peace... this is a Bible verse I will be holding on to Monday as I head to surgery.
I'll be having a total hip replacement. As I child I had surgery for a dislocated hip. A year or so later, I had a second surgery to remove three pins used to secure the hip. Though I have limited motion in that hip, those surgeries took me through many years of relative normal function.
My normal that is. Putting shoes on, bending down and other activities might not be the way others do it. The doctor told me I have compensated and will be astonished at what a real normal hip feels like. He will also correct my 3/4-inch leg length discrepancy.
So now is the time to move forward with this. Honestly, I do feel a wee bit apprehensive about it all but I have heard only good things from many who have gone through this surgery.
So, my friends, wish me well and say a prayer if you are so inclined!
