3 Years Out

Wow, it's already been 3 years since my RPAO. Funny thing is, that this post could be identical to what I wrote in my second year anniversary post. Taught a water class, went to work, hung out with my kid--just another day. I hardly ever reference my hips anymore, except when I have a new face in class. Then I feel like I have to explain why I do more coaching than jumping around, which usually ends up with comparing myself to an old golden retriever.

Nothing really too exciting to report, which is a good thing!! It's nice to be able to put years of hip problems behind me and get on with life.

Chance Encounter

As I was sitting in a coffee shop this afternoon chatting with an old college buddy, through the window I watched a car pull into a handicap spot. Out came a girl on red millenial crutches, crutching her way into the store with her mom by her side. I said to my friend, "I bet that girl had PAO surgery." I recognize the walk and the crutches. I also knew that we weren't too far from my surgeon's office. Of course I couldn't resist asking if she had PAO surgery, and sure enough she did! After a few more questions we figured out that we actually "know" each other, as we've talked online many time and are actually friends on Facebook! What a small world. Nice to meet you in person, Marcie! Looks like you' are doing great and are right on target. Look me up next time you're in town =)

I'm sending out a HUGE congratulations to a fellow hip chick for completing a half marathon over the weekend!!! What a great accomplishment, and with a reconstructed hip and another that is holding its own. Way too go, Beth!
