Freak Snow Storm Yesterday


Yesterday and today we've had snow! Fun but not for the new spring growth.

I'm floundering a bit with what I want to do now. What type of doll or painting or creating do I want to do. Have you ever just went from one thing only to put it down and pick something only to put that down and well you know... Seems to be what I'm doing. I have 3 tables in my "studio" room.  I have 3 spaces I can't sit and stare. 

Anyway here's a picture of the snow!

Ok hang on to your seats.....

I saw my "real" Dr. today and as I anxiously waited for her to confirm what the Nurse Practitioner had said "You'll need double hip replacements. I can't believe your walking around." My Dr. sat down next to me and said "What????" "She said what?" 

Long story short (or shorter) The Nurse Practitioner had jumped the gun, and had me in the loop with an Orthopedic Dr. (surgeon, one I didn't even pick) NP without a doubt said I needed this procedure~

So for the past 2 and a half weeks....
I've been telling people, like you all. Family and Friends that I was having the double hip thing.
I was preparing myself, looking into which surgeon was the best. Whether I should go to Seattle, or stay here. My son was upset. My husband elicited help from some of the nurses he knows....

OMG....

Of course I'm relieved, but also when you've prepared yourself for what someone has told you was going to happen and then .... no it's not going to happen.... I guess I felt blown away today hence the long post.

What I has is a serious case of Bursitis.... So it's icing, less walking or exercising. Heavy anti-inflammatory and walk with a cane if needed... then we'll see if it's been in a couple of weeks. If not then cortisone shots.

But 
NO HIP REPLACEMENTS AT THIS TIME!!!!!!!
Raise a glass of wine or Champagne and say with me "Hip hip horary" (no pun intended : )

Hips and joint and things....

I've just found out from my Dr. that it's almost a done deal that I'll need both hips replaced.
My son says "I think that's something"old" people do" Well I hope I'm not that old, Lol!

I'm seeing her again tomorrow,  thinking we will proceed to the next thing. I've been gathering my questions and names of Dr.'s recommended to me..... I'm feeling a bit in denial about the whole thing and also resolved. I think if my pain when I sleep of walk up or down stairs is relived then that's a good thing. My husband says' we'll go for a month to Montreal Canada for a month when it's all done. Montreal being one of my most favorite cities in the world. These pictures are of my son and husband...in Montreal Ontario ~
