    How's Your Weather Today?

    Haven’t been outside, but there’s a severe heat advisory, so that’s pretty darn hot.

    It’s a good day for a new hip!

    Sorry you apparently lack the wit and sagacity to realize when an off handed comment for offering me unsolicited medical advice is exactly that, as I had no idea what a genuine old bastard you really are. And as far as “whining,” if you knew shit about this group, you’d know we are the old...

    It’s a good day for a new hip!

    So, the doctor’s assistant said the events of Saturday night weren’t all that unusual, so let the PT guy know about it when he starts folding me like a letter this morning. Would you like 1 Perc or 2 with your PT? 😊

    It’s a good day for a new hip!

    Well, a major setback overnight. Seems something in these pills I’ve been given post op amplifies the diuretic I already take, and on the third damn trip to the bog, something went horribly wrong in exiting the bed. At least the intense stabbing pain is in the muscle below the incision, so best...

    Hot, maybe a rain shower later, maybe not. It’s Memphis - wash, sweat, repeat.

    It’s a good day for a new hip!

    Oh, my sweet summer child. I have a nephrologist, urologist, and the occasional endocrinologist looking after me with tender devotion. They’re aware of what I’m taking, and no red flags have flown. The kidney issues were back in the aughts, ending with the removal of old Lefty in December of...

    Where’s Lancpudin?

    @soulman969, looks to me like you go through too many other towns I’ve heard of to consider Ft. Collins a local move. We have a quaint colloquial term for such a thing here in Memphis, but I do prefer when posting to use the Proper Scottish term of ”I smell shyte!”

    It’s a good day for a new hip!

    Day 2. Slept well, no issues, was stiff when arising, but that’s to be expected. Took a lap of the house, didn’t hurt much at all, but I still took a Perc anyway. The interesting thing today will be discovering what the handful of pills they gave me - on top of the handful I take anyway - does...

    Where’s Lancpudin?

    They’ve all done this, at least for our market. My son had a Toyota Tacoma, which at one time was a small truck. His was massive, and the next one up was an apartment building on wheels. My 02 Wagon is tiny compared to the same car in 2022. And these behemoth trucks are causing issues here to a...

    It’s a good day for a new hip!

    Actually, that was kinda the problem to begin with! And hi, fellers and any ladies I’m unaware of! I’m home, I’m bright eyed, not groggy - but a large glass of wine with the afternoon Percocet went a long way in relaxation - and I’m surprised it doesn’t hurt really as much as it could have at...

    It’s a good day for a new hip!

    I can’t wait for this to be over. And I wish someone had told me about Celebrex a long time ago, as it really helped knock the pain back. They started me on it a week ago, and I could walk around without feeling stabbed. It was quite refreshing! I’ll update after returning from the Land of Nod.

    How's Your Weather Today?

    89°/31° for a high, and we got a rare break in the humidity. It was so pleasant this morning I opened all the windows and the sunroof in the car while running errands.

    The Stones were right

    So got a call from the surgical center, saying they’d run my insurance, and apart from the $500 deductible, of which I was well aware, they mentioned the $3,300 “out of pocket” expense which hadn’t been met, so could I please pay that the morning of the surgery? I had no idea about the out of...

    How's Your Weather Today?

    Hot as Hell, and humid AF, but it’s Memphis, so we sigh, accept, and persevere. I’d rather be in Cocoa Beach, where there was always a breeze off the beach making weather like this more bearable. Wearing nothing but board shorts and getting in the water helped a lot, too.

    Where’s Lancpudin?

    Ouch. For whatever reason, although my urologist and I have a notion about that, my last PSA was the highest yet, at .07, and I’m 64 next week. Positive, healing thoughts coming across the pond at ya!

    How's Your Weather Today?

    Let me dispel that myth. Yes, it supposedly is the BBQ capital, but I’m rarely satisfied with the pulled BBQ pork I get here. Ribs, brisket, chicken, all good, but the pork never seems to be smoky enough. You gotta go back to where I came from for that, West Kentucky is the place for good smoky...
