Sunday, June 4
The first thing I thought of this morning when I woke up was how useless I would have been before my hip replacements. All I could hear was rain. For most it’s calming and soothing and makes you not want to get our if bed. Well, it does the same for me (the not getting out of bed part) but with added frustration.
Due to the arthritis that was in both my hips, rainy days meant life came to a stand still. For the rained filled month of March and April 2017 there were days when I could only manage to make it to the couch. My legs did not want to work, it often felt like I lost all power, strength and was just full of rust.
And while I may not be super useful today (June 4), not having the arthritic pain is so freeing. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, all the hardest stuff is over… I’m moving forward.
