We all know Michael had recent hip surgery and wish him the very best. Any updates on how he is doing?
 
Again, the very best wishes to Michael and Lisa.

Any surgery hurts.  Hip surgery is no difference.  Good luck Michael.

The only pain Michael would feel is if the person in the bed next to him was eating a big order of fried clams and Michael was on a clear liquid diet. I hope your doing well buddy.............Bill

Want to loose some weight?
Have surgery and eat hospital food!
However, since there's a Chef in the house, I'll bet he's getting some nice substitute meals.
Having had both knees done and plates and screws put in my back, I know how much fun rehab can be!" />
Speedy recovery Michael!

I'm sure you are doing well Michael with Lisa's help. Not that I thought you couldn't do it alone but as is well known, any obstacle in life is best endured with the help of a loved or caring person or partner!! Wishing you both the best!

Re:Michael Hoffman 2013/03/19 13:13:12
Thanks all for your kind wishes.  It's been a crazy week and I finally got back the forums.  Michael is doing excellently .  Almost no pain, but a lot of discomfort.  The physical therapist came this morning and showed him easier ways to negotiate some things, like getting in and out of bed.  He will be switching from a walker to a cane on Thursday and says he's going to try to make it onto the computer soon!
Again, many thanks, for the kind thoughts.  You'll all be glad to know that the surgeon did not remove any of the curmudgeoness!

I haven't looked at "off topic and lighter fare" in a while.  So I'm glad I caught this and am happy to hear that Mr Hoffman is recovering ...Lisa, take good care of him so that he can get quickly back on his feet with a full recovery so I can take him to all the wonderful coffee houses he's been missing!

Re:Michael Hoffman 2013/03/20 12:54:50
Thanks everyone!  He gets a little better every day but last night somehow twisted wrong and is hurting today.  We were going to go out for a ride this afternoon just to get out of the house but Nurse Lisa thinks it's a bad idea......getting dressed, shoes, in and out of the car......nope.  Maybe tomorrow. 
You'll all be glad to know that he has already polished off that can of Boyardee ravioli.

Re:Michael Hoffman 2013/03/20 19:41:45
Thanks to everyone for the kind wishes. I'm doing pretty well, but suffering badly from cabin fever. I'm supposed to graduate tomorrow from a walker to a cane, and that'll be a welcome change. Without lleechef's efforts I'd be in really bad shape. She's fetching and carrying, helping me in and out of bed, changing the dressings, feeding me -- and of course, bringing me up short in true Nurse Ratched fashion. The thing that has surprised me the most has been the pain -- or really, the lack thereof. I've not taken anything but acetaminophen the whole time. If anyone is contemplating hip replacement surgery I highly recommend The Ohio State University Hospital East. Pretty nurses, too. But bring your own salt and pepper.
 
Again, thank you all. Oh, and now I revert to my true self -- the miserable SOB.

Mar, Michael has no pain, that doesn't mean that Lisa isn't in pain. I was thinking of collecting money to send Lisa on a 6 week pain reliever trip to Alaska. When Michael gets back on his feet all he would need is a few cases of Chef Boyardee Rovioli............

I guess I'm going to survive my barking. lleechef made some of the most delicious broccoli cheese soup for me for lunch today, after the departure of the home nurse, the physical therapist and the occupational therapist. Frankly, I'm amazed at her patience with this patient.

It may have been easier if she still had the fishing boat and had you recovering on it. No one would question a man falling over board. When you live in the city she has to drag your sorry ass out side and burry you in the back yard. She is a smart gal, I would worry when she asks if you want to go fishing soon..................pnwc

Re:Michael Hoffman 2013/03/28 14:14:47
Oh wow, I forgot about the possibilities a fishing boat could provide!    I could also get rid of the nurse, the physical therapist and the occupational therapist all at once.  But Lake Erie is too shallow.  I do have one advantage though, I can drive and he can't!  HA!

Again, thanks to all. I'm apparently doing very well. At least that's what the physical therapist and the occupational therapist say. And a week ago our family doctor was showing me off (the walking part) to other docs in her office. I figure I'm doing OK strictly on the basis of being able to get in and out of bed all by myself.
