THR +274

April 4, 2015

Well, it's now nine months or 274 days since my hip replacement. All good.

I still suffer a little stiffness now and then, but the new hip is working perfectly. I've even been riding a stationary bike -- mostly because there has been so much snow in Halifax that it's impossible to walk anywhere. I've fallen on the ice a few times, too -- but no problems.

A bigger problem is my right hand. I injured it last June and it had healed -- or so I thought. But months of using crutches and endless typing took their toll. It looks like a tendon is torn or something didn't heal right because three fingers kind of hang. I can move them into place, but if I go limp, they sort of flop. They're painful too -- a dull pain, not unlike the old hip pain.

Anyway, I best see someone about it it -- I have a feeling surgery may be required.

I've also fattened up nicely now that I'm walking less than I was in San Pedro. Once I'm relocated downtown, I plan to do a ton of walking -- and eventually bike riding although I doubt I'll be doing 40km rides right away.

Plans for the future are up in the air. I may stay here. I may go to Toronto. And, there's always home.

That's about it. Until next time...
