This is what I’ve waiting for.

This morning was my very first physical therapy with two new hips. I’ve been waiting so long for this moment. I’m very excited to start working on making both legs stronger…

I look forward to the day when I can walk again without any pain or discomfort. And hopefully, that day is quickly approaching very soon. Taken with Instagram. 😀🏥❤️

Lunch at someplace other than Arnolds.

We had lunch at nada today for a coworker celebration. Usually, we always have these sort of things at Arnold’s. It’s almost as if someone at work has a minority share in the ownership of the Arnold’s or something with the frequency we have group lunches there. It was really refreshing to go somewhere else. Anywhere else. And I haven’t been to nada in ages

I ordered the little nada sliders with steamed onion, cheese, jalapeño and sweet chili-glazed fries with crema. It was really good. I had forgotten how much I liked their little slider burgers…

Genifer and I will have to go check out their Vacation Vibes Wednesdays after work someday in the not too distant future. 😀🇲🇽🍔❤️

Happy National Chili Dog Day!

We stopped at Skyline in Clifton on the way home from work to get some delicious Skyline cheese coneys for dinner tonight to celebrate National Chili Dog Day

I wanted my cheese coneys to look like this when I got them home…

But instead, they looked like this. They looked kind of sad. But they still tasted delicious! So we’ll just say they looked as pretty as these. 😀🧀🌭❤️

Physical therapy.

Late this afternoon I rode the Metro 24 bus from work downtown up one of Cincinnati’s many hills into Mount Auburn to make my way back again to The Christ Hospital Joint & Spine Center. Metro made it a piece of cake to get up to The Christ Hospital. The bus ride was super easy and dropped me off right in front of the hospital. I was back at the Joint & Spine Center because today was my scheduled physical therapy re-evaluation of my left hip replacement after the revision surgery. They do evaluation testing to get baseline measurements for the current range of motion of my hip. Those numbers are then submitted to the insurance company to determine approximately how many physical therapy sessions it will take to get today’s baseline measurements to return to as close as possible to the full range of motion for my hip…

Genifer met me at therapy so she didn’t have to come all the way downtown just to turn around and take me right back in the direction she just came from.

Everything went really well with the therapy. The therapist I was working with today said that the baseline measurements looked very good. And gave me some new exercises to do at home to strengthen my hip. The physical therapist also told me that he had been working at The Christ Hospital for the last ten years and during that time my hip revision surgery was just the third one that he had heard of at The Christ Hospital. So I guess what happened to me was a very, very rare occurrence.

Now, I have the first six sessions of physical therapy scheduled for my hip starting next Wednesday. I can’t wait to get back into therapy and really start the strengthening my hip so my hip can start to get back to normal. For the first time in years, I can actually see the light at the end of the tunnel. Finally. 😀🏥❤️

An unexpected change of plans.

I went to have x-rays of my hip this morning after yesterday morning’s mishap

After looking at the x-rays of my left hip, my doctor showed me how the poly liner in my new hip had somehow, inexplicably shifted out of position in the cup that holds it in place against my pelvic bone…

The friction that I was feeling in my hip was the stem head rubbing against the now out-of-position poly liner. Long story short, I have to undergo a total left hip revision surgery tomorrow at 3pm. It’s not the full total hip replacement surgery like before. From what I understand, they are just going to go in to replace the damaged poly liner and stem head. I’ll be staying overnight again but then afterward I should hopefully, be good to go once again. Fingers crossed. 😐🏥🤞❤️

It’s a sign.

ps. Whoever did the illustration for the poster did a really nice job. It’s pretty sweet…

#TBT Pause for paws.

Three years ago, we drove up to Michigan to visit my parents and Milan came with us…

Milan loved my parent’s backyard…

He would have loved our backyard so much. And he would have loved going on walks through Parker Woods. I miss the bud dog so much every day. 😀🐾❤

Here we go again.

This afternoon I had my pre-operation physical and blood work done for my next surgery on Friday. They said that everything looked good. I can’t say that I’m looking forward to this but it’ll be good once it’s behind us. 😶🏥❤️

Summer Hours: Crown Republic.

I had my Summer Hours again today. This time was decided to check out a new place that just opened down the Eighth Street from work and just up Sycamore Street from where we used to live downtown. It’s a new gastropub called Crown Republic

 

Genifer tried one of their cocktails. This one is called Derby Punch with Jim Beam, Sage, Watermelon and Lemon…

They had a lot of items on their menu that sounded really good. It was a tough decision. But we made some hard decisions and lunch was served…

Genifer ordered the cheeseburger and it was massive…

Here’s my chicken po’boy…

Both sammiches were great and they were served with terrific fries. It was a really good lunch. Crown Republic also offers $3 Tall Boys. We each had a Hamm’s Tall Boy and hung out at Crown Republic to watch the Switzerland versus Serbia match in the World Cup highlighted by Swiss and Arsenal midfielder, Granit Xhaka’s outstanding strike. It was another wonderful Summer Hours Friday afternoon. Thanks, Crown Republic!
😀👑❤️

Seen and noted.

We saw this just around the corner from our house on our way to work this morning…

A port-o-potty on a trailer. I’ve never seen one of those before. Taken with Instagram. 😀💩❤️
