Just thought I’d check in. My absence is a reflection of how infrequently I think about my hip. I had my 2 year anniversary in late February. Suffice it to say I can do anything (albeit slower than when I was . . . er. . . younger).
Since the surgery, beginning at 11 weeks post-op, I’ve run, skied, mt. biked, speedskated,played basketball, backpacked and consumed lots of good wine (I know, unrelated, but honest). In honor of the two year anniversary I skied bumps and powder at Vail and, very recently, ran down from Mt. Sanitas in Boulder, CO, with my 15 year old, superbly athletic granddaughter.
I pounded my hip, landed awkwardly, jumped from rock to rock, fell twice, laughed hard and the only thing that hurt was my feelings, ’cause she beat me to the bottom.
I love hip surgery!!
Hope all y’all are well.
