Still Vacationing at the Methodist Hilton......

Today is my third day in the hosptal.  The hip replacement surgery went well.  My doctor said that I had one of the worst hips he's ever seen.  Yesterday was filled with "Highs" and "Lows".   I used a walker to walk around the the floor.  The Physical Therapy has been great.  
They're re-teaching me on how to walk safely.   I had another good walking session in the afternoon.  Yesterday evening, when I got up, my blood pressure was too low.  I turned white and started to pass out.  I'm going to take it a little easier today.  The nerve on my left foot has had severe pain.  The Physicians Assistant said that it is quite common for the nerves in the path of the hip to become very painful and sensitive.  But this should go away.
