I hope you get relief for your hip, Carol. It's pretty perplexing to move a lot with a bad hip.
I went for a back check and my dr. was pleased with where I am 30 months post-surgery. Apparently most people my age after this surgery (17 levels fused) just kind of turn into couch potatoes. I didn't do that, but neither am I a marathon goddess.
I still don't walk upright well due to pressure on the sciatic nerves - both sides. And standing up is tricky - I learned I must not be holding a baby, because I have a tendency to throw whatever is in my hands when that spasm hits. The dr. wrote me a script for physical therapy - said getting my core stronger still will help the sciatic nerves. I don't see how, but whatever...
And on the art front, a friend from church challenged me Sunday to "make something" this week. I guess I can't let him pull ahead of me...
March makes for a great challenge month. At least I feel challenged to change myself...
