Wonderful Butterfly !

Dear Ruthie,

Indeed, am / I was equally absent.
The reason for my healthy
Half years since I have serious hip and knee problems that my previous doctor said:
atrose that is nothing to do. It was getting worse and then I got a new doctor early this year, the first resolved with painkillers.
because it was getting worse, there are some pictures and found that my hips and right knee were very bad shape.
I dared not alone and when I was given morphine for the pain I could no longer drive a car. Was therefore much in bed.
Life was not funny and not at all through it!
In May, we have been on holiday to Canada and America.
We have brought a drop off camper van Galgery to Toronto
With analgesics is still successful and it was a fantastic trip
On arriving home, I had an appointment with the orthopedic surgeon on 25 June.
June 9 I have been operated with urgency on my right hip.
The operation went perfectly and it was after 5 days back home but unfortunately
I was two days later in the hospital by a blockage in the intestines by the morphine. Weather six days in hospital.
That was intense and lost all my strength and energy.
Yesterday I entered the 6th week and the rehabilitation is going well.
I have energy again and am happy and positive
the pain in my right hip is gone.
My left hip in early October at the turn and my right knee in January 2016.
So I see the future with hope.
Furthermore, it goes well.
It's a nice summer and is a lot in the garden.
I work hard on my recovery.

Soon I will post some pictures.
Hope all is well with you .

Kind regards and big hugs,
