Post Hip Replacement

It's five weeks tomorrow and 8 days till I can drive again - what a relief. Recovery has been going well - fatigue being a bigger issue than pain, but even that is improving. Haven't felt the need for pain medication in the last week and am just back from a six block walk, albeit with one crutch. Don't use an aid in the house but better safe outside in the winter. Fortunately it's a really mild January with temps above freezing so walking is very pleasant.

Did go photographing on Saturday but it was exhausting after about 90 minutes and I sat and waited for my friend, and even wandering around The Camera Store after was tiring. But today's walk was much faster than the one only two days ago and the more active I get the better I sleep.

I return to work part time Feb. 2, with mixed feelings.

Went to the 4mp movie yesterday, no crowd. Saw Imitation Game - great movie!
