My hip is doing great!
It's been hard to keep things in perspective with the general emotional downturn that arrived with surgery, and most days I don't feel like I'm making any progress at all (though I obviously am since I'm walking on my own two feet now!). So, it was really wonderful news to hear that I am exactly where he thinks I should be, and that everything looks and feels fine. He told me that the bike is my best friend - and I plan on ramping up my at-home exercises (which currently consists of... nothing. Guilty.) to make sure that I am biking for at least 15 minutes everyday. I have also been cleared to swim and to use the elliptical (which is my least favorite exercise machine, but whatever).

Today I also had to get a TB test read that I had done on Monday. To fill out the application for my student teaching placement, we have to have a mini-exam and a TB test to ensure we are fit to care for children. Good news is I am also tuberculosis-free!
And there you have it. A happy health Wednesday. Now I'm off to my little girls' last practice of the season, thunderstorms allowing. See ya tomorrow!
