I now officially HATE Summer....if it's not 100 Degrees, then it's 'freak' summer STORMS (Y'know, where the electricity goes away ).
But, I also have something new and interesting: The VA and I are actively planning to replace my knees, one at a time. (My latest ortho appointment showed my latest hip replacement healing nicely -not as fast as last time and I have to go to Physical Therapy twice a week, still no problems)

I am currently recovering from the latest hip replacement (BOTH are now steel/polymer/porcelin contraptions). And I have to do the PT -on my own; HA! It's a good thing that I was an NCO, otherwise that would never happen- and just simply ....heal ? recover?... but even now, the VA and I are talking about which knee would I like

SO, two weeks ago, March 22nd, I had Hip Replacement Surgery for my Left Hip (to go along with my Right Hip Replacement)..
And the Surgery went fine, done here at VA Medical center Ann Arbor Michigan, accomplished by the same surgeon that did my right hip several years ago ! I am still in The VA Med center, doing nicely according to surgeons, physicians, physical therapists and fellow patients. This VA is one of the best in the country, partnered with the…Continue

Well, at least I have an firm date for my hip-replacement surgery: January 11, 2012.
Otherwise, life still sucks....
No, actually, it doesnt. I am truly blessed by the friends that I have. Truly Blessed. When my life went south I was (and am) receiving such help and support- from all the friends that I somehow was fortunate to have made- that every day it still leaves me speechless .The word" Great" doesnt even begin to describe it.
