Last week I graduated from crutches to cane to walking unaided, all in 24 hours. There is no pain and only slight discomfort, some muscular stiffness around the incision. What I don’t feel is my femur rubbing against the acetabulum, for the first time in months. I’m ready to go, and none too soon: my first class is 40 hours from now.
It all went as I planned. How often can a person say that?
