Hip Replacement

Well, the deed is done. I now have a brand new metal hip. And, believe me, I feel a lot better than I did the day I walked into the Hospital.
I went in Monday morning, had the operation, and was walking on the leg that evening. Spent two nights and came home today. Therapy for the hip is a snap compared to that for the knees. My biggest problem is lifting the leg. I will have at home therapy three days a week. How long? Depends on the healing process.
Thanks to all for the well wishes. It's great to know you have a wonderful family and such a thoughtful group of friends.
I hope to be back on the golf course in a few weeks.
