Hip replaced & back to pricing study

Hi everyone,

To be honest, even I did not think the total hip replacement would go as smooth as it did.
I went ino surgery at approximately 11:30 a.m. Wed. and I was in recovery around 2 p.m. And then up to my room shortly thereafter.
The next morning (today), I was convinced my right leg was paralyzed permanently since I could not feel it or move it. I guessed that was the reason I didn't see a soul until around 10 a.m.... They were simply afraid to tell me.
Finally, the OT comes in with a walker and teaches me all the tricks for getting out of bed... I told her I was paralyzed and she just laughed. As soon as she left I used the walker and was standing there when the two PTs came to the room. One of them said he had never seen a patient moving around like
I was so soon after surgery. That made me feel great.
I go home tomorrow and I know I have lots of work remaining... At least now I can jump back on the pricing study like I never left.
