Just a quick note for now.
Yup, my great friend Shari finally has her hip surgery scheduled. It is scheduled for February 5th @ 2:00 PM at Seaton Medical Center in Austin. The surgeon is Dr. Shelby Carter, considered one of the best hip surgeons in the country. She is really looking forward to it to get rid of the pain. She told me the doctor said she would be pain free when she left Austin. I asked her what was she doing, "Are you leaving the Village Idiot in Texas and going back to Iowa alone?" The Brain is really happy about the scheduled time. He was afraid it would be at 6:00 AM and he would have to get up at 2:00 AM or maybe even earlier.
After surgery, Shari will be in the hospital for 2 to 3 days and then will have 2 weeks of at home rehab. She should be out and about without a cane in about a month. If it works out that way, it will be great.
This is all for now. I will be writing again soon. There is a little thing I have to pass on to you about The Happy Couple and the Powells and their adventure to Hippie Hollow.
Later and have a great weekend. (Oh by the way, the temperature in Austin is suppose to be 71 on Sunday. Dang, I hate it when it gets that hat.)
