    Revisions are a walk in the park compared to the original one. I have had 4 revisions. So sorry that this happened. Send healing thoughts, Susan

    Back from seeing the Surgeon in Toronto, I had a catscan there and was fitted for a Jewitt Brace. I have to leave it on except for sleeping.
    And come back to see him in a month.
    It is not very comfortable and hard to get up and down with it on. But at least it is not a solid brace so should not be as hot as the one Susan had to wear.
    Doc said when this is healed I will be scheduled for my revision surgery. Can't wait to get this over with and get on with my life, I will be 70 tomorrow! Oh how time flies.
    Wishing you all a wonderful summer.

    Happy 70th Birthday! You caught up with me!
    The good side of a brace is that it greatly decreases the fear that if you were in a car wreck or someone bumped into you at the supermarket, that it would hurt.

    Hoping for a cool summer!
    Sending you healing thoughts,
