I expect to be gone from the forum for a few (perhaps several) days.  Tomorrow I will be having hip-replacement surgery.  Prayers and good wishes are appreciated, whether or not expressed here.

I’m sure everyone else sends you good wishes as fervently as I do; I’m not a praying man, but I’ll be exerting whatever influence I have upon the universe in the hopes that things go well and you return to us better than ever.

All the best, Doc. My aunt recently had hip replacement and she came through with flying colors; I hope you do the same and have a speedy recovery!

It doesn’t apply completely, but may get your mind of things for a minute:

Het op zijn heupen krijgen Du. expr. lit. “to get it on one’s hips” Said when a person is very excited or agitated. Possibly reminiscent of the ancient custom to strike one’s hips when becoming emotional (says F.A. Stoett).

Hope things will work out fine, Doc.

Just seen this, Dr T, so I’m sorry I didn’t reply earlier.  But if you’ve had the op by now I hope it went well for you and very best wishes from our little corner of the globe.

Thanks to all for the good wishes.  The operation went smoothly and recovery is going pretty well, although I’m still on some fairly heavy-duty pain meds that blur my focus and make me sleepy, which is why I haven’t posted sooner and will be limiting myself to this tonight.  But I wanted to bring you this update, and again express my thanks.

I only saw your original message today, Doctor - otherwise, would have sent good wishes much sooner. Refu’ah shlema, Doc - I wish you a complete and speedy recovery. Had the same myself two years ago, and while I’m not yet taking flamenco lessons, it did me no end of good. The rehab period, for a few months after the operation, is particularly important - the more exercise you are able to do, the sooner you will recover. A woman friend with 2 titanium hips recommends cycling. She does 20-30 km several times a week.

Physical therapists are sadists, but the process works. My continued prayers, Doc!

I completely missed this thread. My best wishes for a speedy and complete recovery and hoping that your return to the board betokens just that.
