I woke up this morning to find the 'new' hip and leg had turned the most obnoxious yellowish-green tint. I knew bruising would show up, but was hoping for some prettier colors first; you know, the red and black and blue and purple stuff? I was informed that since this wasn't blunt force trauma (how would she know, she wasn't there) that I went straight to green. I think I'll call the surgeon and tell him I feel cheated! I've been really good, doing my exercises, using the WALKER, trying to stay out of everyone's way, etc. Hubby has been a wonder, although he did tell his mother-in-law yesterday, that he was 'done'. Good for him I knew he was kidding. I also know how hard it is to nursemaid someone when you feel worse with the cold (as in virus, again!) So I thought I would tell him publicly how much I love him and appreciate all he's doing. Love you, Bill.
PS-However, if anyone attempts to touch the green side, they will be soundly beaten with my cane! This gives a new meaning to deep bruising.
