Being Green Isn't Easy!

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.


  1. When you say "green" in connection with a surgery, I think of gangrene--but they have nothing to do with each other. Still, green? Ow! OW! OW! Hope you get better soon!!

  2. But it you beat someone with your cane, they'll get the pretty colors that you're craving.

  3. I am staying outta your way!

    I bet Bill looks cute in his nursemaid outfit, no?

  4. You've been tagged at our blog! :)

  5. The green is probably going to be around for awhile-since it took it a week to turn green.

    Haven't talked Bill into any sort of outfit yet. I think I might draw the line on that one; there are a lot of weeks and a second surgery to go yet. Don't want to lose the good help!

    Rachel-I am about as fast at tag as you are, so don't hold your breath. I will try not to shorten your name any more. I like the whole name thing; I won't shorten either of my boys' names. I just get lazy typing.

  6. I remember a song that Kermit the Frog sang: "It's not easy being green"

    Seems that he is right....LOL

    hope it gets better for you SOON!!!!!

    and Kudos to Bill for being there. It must be tough staying off the Cryptobiotic dust to tend to you...(grin)

  7. LOL. You are tough, Juanita! I think you will heal faster than most. And good thing for Bill he was kidding. Love that.


I had to turn verification back on. Ten "spams" an hour is making me crazy...
