THR +18 Months (549 Days)

January 4, 2016 - THR +18 Months (549 Days)

Seriously. A year and a half?

I'm gobsmacked that 18 months have passed since I received my new left hip. Why?

Well, I almost forget what living with pain felt like. And I can't believe how fast time flies. It's really quite incredible.

The good news continues: the left hip is fantastic. And the right hip, which will need replacing at some point, is also fantastic. No sign of any trouble. An X-ray might say differently, but in terms of pain: zilch.

Walking and hiking are almost effortless. And would be if I could just drop this excess weight. Gah!

But... I've been cycling in Scotland, too. It's an eBike (with an electric motor assist for steep hills) and I try to get out on it when it's not raining. But that's not often.

Wandering around the Isle of Mull, Scotland

Plans are coming together for the next stop on my journey: back to Nova Scotia for a few months.

And so it goes...
