Sometimes life just sucksi

I've had 4 hip replacements on my right hip due to a car accident when I was 13. I lost. My mom and 2 brothers and a sister in that accident. My dad was killed 7 years previous in a car accident. My remaining siblings and I were out in foster homes.I've also had several surgeries for a hiatal hernia, And I've also had my left shoulder and left knee replaced. I keep asking my hubby if he's waiting for my spare parts or to recycle them.
Well, April 19th of 2015 I slipped and broke the femur in my replaced hip and had emergency surgery. After the Dr. Looked at X-rays he told my hubby he could amputee my leg. I just about flipped. He put a rod in my leg and I had so much pain and he mentioned amputation again. I told my hubby I wanted to go to Mayo I had been at a rehab/nursing home for about 12 weeks between surgeries. The mayo doctor shaved some of the rod off as that was rubbing on my knee causing the pain. He replaced the whole knee. I'm really bionic now, LOL
I,was in hospital 3 days and then went back to rehab for another 12 weeks.
While at the Rehab my leg got infected so that was another 3 days in hospital. Then it was a stomach infection. Also had pneumonia. Then one Sunday we went to my son's for my grand-daughters birthday. My son was helping me down the steps (I had my arm around his neck)
I went down the step but my arm and son didn't. We both heard a noise from my shoulder so it was a trip to the ER where they xrayed the shoulder and advised me to get a MRI if it didn't get better. I'm pretty much in a wheel chair but I can walk across the living room with a walker.
All this on top of having Parkinson's.
No pity party here. It's Thanksgiving and I'm thankful for my faimily and my friends.
