Hello, it’s Robin (froggyone) I just re-read your message and I’m trying to figure out what to say. First off, I hope you’re out of the hospital and are on the mend. I can’t give you medical advice on whether you should have more surgeries. I’m the wrong person to ask about that because I’m very angry about the way things happened to me over the course of 4 surgeries and 2 staph infections. It’s crazy to me to read about people that have had 6,7 or 8 surgeries and 6 or 8 staph infections because I had 2 of them and I don’t want to ever have another procedure done, no matter what it’s for, because I’m far too scared. I can’t go through that again ever. I’m also extremely bitter and sad because I’ll never be able to work on a horse farm again. I was really in my element there and I loved it so much. I also had a housecleaning/organizing/packing,moving business for 25 year and I’m used to being strong and mobile. I loved all that work too. I can’t even fathom what I’m going to do for the rest of my life. I’m bored stiff. I am very determined to get another job, since I love animals so much it will probably be with animals. I never had to use a wheel chair. In fact, within 2 days of the final hip removal I was up and chomping at the bit to get moving. I even practiced on the stairs! My surgeon was blown away. Do you think you’ll have to stay in a wheelchair? I hope eventually you are able to use a walker, cane or even crutches. I have some good advice for you for when you start using a walker. Get back to me when you have a chance and let me know how you’re doing and when you get to go home. I’ll give you any pointers you may need. Or just listen to your worries or concerns. Take care, Robin
