Howdy y’all – it’s been a while but I’ve been busy wrapping up my year so I could get a total hip replacement earlier this week. It’s tough. Everybody was telling me I’d be walking out of the hospital but nope. Nope nope nope. But admittedly, the worst of what I’m experiencing right now are side effects from painkillers. Once that haze is gone, then I can concentrate on walking again. I’ll write more when my head clears. So Happy New Year and belated Merry Christmas!
