If there is little to no improvement in three months, we are looking at a complete hip replacement.
The femur breaks are fusing, however are forming a ball of bone that is pushing up into my thigh muscle. Depending on how far it interferes with movement, it may need to be operated to have it shaved down so it is not in the way.
My arm... Well, that is looking better and hopefully have this cast off by the end of January.
I'm kind off all over the place emotionally right now. Do I sell everyone? Keep just a few? My work and re-training is stressing me out. At least we got most of the house stuff completed.
I did get released for four days for Christmas, and after that we see how it goes, whether I get locked up again or can stay home. The biggest issue is being here by myself, in case I fall.
Anyhow, I hope everyone is enjoying their holidays, and keeping warm. Everyone here is frosty with out -30 weather.
...and the feeling all over the place emotionally is a long roller coaster that takes a long time to go away after such severe injury. You will get there, you need to take it one step at a time, just one day at a time and think of where you could have ended up-dead-or wheelchair bound or something even worse.
You will get back into the saddle, and you will be able to feel so great that you'll forget you went thru what you went thru until you look back the photos you have. The mind is amazing in protecting you, and with time you feel better and better.
Words of wisdom: DO EXACTLY WHAT THE DOCTORS TELL YOU TO DO. If they say you need to take some time off out of the saddle YOU GOT TO FOLLOW IT. Severe injuries are easy to screw up, and if you do screw it up-you will regret it for the rest of your life. A year off or two is nothing when you know you can be back to normal.
Ill pm you my cell. If you need some advise, vent or words of wisdom text me-I've been thru this more than once.
Love you girl, hope you're able to stay behaved
