As this year winds down, and my first year post op anniversary/birthday approaches, I am taking stock over what this year has entailed.
And my biggest thing is, I’ve smiled more this year than I have in 10years. I’ve had an incredible year, which I definitely put down to the successful hip replacement. And though me still needing a walking stick, meds and hot water bottles may not seem a success to you, for me it’s still a huge improvement.
Fitness is nowhere near where I want it to be, nor is my weight. But I’m finding that I care less and less recently, rather I’m enjoying life and all the new experiences this hip is allowing me. Ever mindful I have to fix other broken body parts, but I’m focusing on the victory!!
So no New Year New Me, or saying goodbye to the decade with scorn. My last decade I’ve learnt to re- walk 8 times, had 10 surgeries, used a walking frame, bath board, perch, walking sticks, and crutches for every year of the last decade. But each one of those brutal recoveries have got me here today. And for that I’m blessed.
I plan for so many more adventures and walking while other hip allows it.
I am lucky that stunning walks are so close go home, and that my partner loves walking too.
Paths not too uneven, so this helps the warm up and to keep a steady balance.
Hopefully I can do this more if my hip and hands allow. I’m still experimenting with #Etoricoxib tablets for Arthritis I’ve had a weeks worth so far. And while it’s not a 100 percent fix it’s certainly helping.
With that said I will bid you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR, and thank you for all the support of friendship you’ve given me, it means the world.
