On Tuesday, September 9, 2014 my husband took me to Reston Medical Center. I got prepped, which included getting this fancy new outfit and being filled full of holes!
I was whisked off to surgery - it only took an hour and a half - I was in my lovely private room by 6:30pm with one of these....
Then came the amazing part - physical therapists showed up bright and early the next morning. They showed me how to get dressed, climb stairs, manage the car and do my exercises - and they sent me home!! Less than 24 hours after full hip replacement!
So now I'm home getting stronger by the minute and planning all the things I'll be doing as soon as these staples come out!
Modern medicine --- what a marvelous thing!
