Puffed Up With Pride

I am puffed up with pride because I made it home from rehab!

On August 24th, I fell and broke my hip. After hip replacement surgery and a stay in the hospital, I was moved to a rehab center for 13 days. I am now up and around with a walker, though moving slowly. I came home from rehab on Monday, Sept 10th, and what a joy! Being confined for two weeks was not fun, nor were the nights there. The days were fun, with learning every day from the therapists. My first night home I got my first good night of sleep in a while. Progress may be a bit slower at home when it comes to therapy and exercise but that's perfectly ok with me. Therapy at rehab was not so much geared for an 82 year old, but for someone younger, I swear. I will progress better at home in many ways.

Very sorry to hear of your fall and surgery, Vern. But, God bless you, it sounds like you made a speedy recovery and are continuing to improve. I believe all the walking you do for photography is serving you well. Beautiful photo and continue with your great attitude. Best to you. V

It's a beauty of a shot, Vern. And we are SO very happy you are recovered enough to be home! Keep up with the 'getting better' and keep being good and resting when you need to. We're all rooting for you!

So sorry to hear about your hip Vern; my Mother did the same thing recently
but she is in her 90's and is now in a nursing home - good that you are HOME
and recovering well.

So sorry to hear about your injury. I know therapy and rehab is not fun but you gotta do it and push yourself toward full recovery.
You still haven’t lost your touch with the camera. Well done. V

Welcome back, Vern. I was wondering what happened and hoping everything was OK. Glad to hear that you are getting back on your feet. All the best!
globalgadabout12-Sep-2018 18:40
fine shot, the date suggesting you have gotten outside again quite must have lots of spirit Vern...hip surgery can provide a challenge...used a walker four years ago after the leg break, and can empathize with the limited movement that provides...stay strong, recover, and get back out there..
joseantonio12-Sep-2018 18:38
welcome back. Wishing you a whole recovery.V.
