Post-Surgery Update – December 13, 2022

Thanks for all your well wishes. I had my hip/pelvis stabilization surgical procedure yesterday. Everything went fine. It was an out-patient procedure and we were back home around 6pm. My oxygen levels were quite low so I had to hang around for the afternoon until those got back up to acceptable levels. I am mobile and could walk immediately afterwards.

Glen is in Chicago for work so Nancy flew out and it taking wonderfully good care of me.

I have 2 incisions. They injected some cement and put in 2 screws in a cross-cross pattern that are about the length of a pen 😳. I don’t have much pain but that is probably thanks to the OxyContin.

I will have a post-op appointment in January. The second step in all this is some radiation on my pelvis to knock down any cancer. That will also be after the new year.

I very much appreciate you all – I feel the love with all your texts and messages. Thank you.
