Recovery Is A Walk In The Park
The Fundamental Info
DrHGuy’s right hip fracture was pinned sometime around noon this Friday past. With the cooperation of the orthopod on weekend call, the hospitalist, an especially competent nursing staff, and the perpetually perky physical therapist assigned to Saturday inpatient duty, our model patient successfully completed the transition from inpatient to outpatient by noon Saturday.
What with the cognitive deficits consequent to the intake of pain pills, the exhaustion that is the cost of portraying a compliant patient, the numb fingers caused by use of the above pictured assistive walking device, and the obligatory family crisis awaiting his return home, DrHGuy is only now returning emails, thinking about the blog, and resuming other elements of the semblance of a normal life.
Heck of a Guy posts may be sparse and sporadic for a few days, and subject matter is likely to focus on orthopedic techniques, hospital food, and wild, sexy nurses.
OK, two out of three isn’t bad.
Besides, who really cares about orthopedic technique?
Obsessively detailed, arguably entertaining account to follow.
A Big Ol’ Special Hunk-O-Gratitude
Thanks to Lady Lawanda for entering the previous post while I was Internet-deprived, transporting me from the hospital, running 3,228 errands for me, and taking care of many, many other details necessary for my survival thus far, giggling only occasionally over my efforts to make nice with my new best friend, Mr. Walker.
