Update on Karen’s post-surgery recovery – Week 2

It’s been a week-and-a-half since Karen’s surgery on her right hip to repair a torn labrum, clean out her bursa and some other nasty-sounding stuff that should make her feel better. After we go to the doctor for her follow-up this week, I may have some cool pics to post, as well.

Week…ery good. The pain was minimal and she was able to get around pretty well. Most of the time, she’s on a walker (practicing for when she gets old…she’s going to be good!), but when we really need to burn up the sidewalks, we scoot around in a wheelchair. Well, she scoots, I’m the man-power.

Week two…a different story. It would seem her right leg finally decided to “wake up” from hibernation and it ain’t happy! The pain has definitely increased to the point that it is making sleep a challenge. Since this is about a 12-week recovery process, we know that some difficult days lie ahead, but we were hoping for the pain to largely stay at bay as in week one.

I would appreciate very much if you will continue to pray for her. We are thankful for the way God has sustained us thus far and are confident He will continue to walk with us as Karen works to walk again. Thank you all so much for your support, your concern and your acts of grace. We cannot thank you enough!
