This is to thank all my friends who left comments wishing me well and speedy recovery. I have had a tough time catching up with the emails since three hours and have just gone through all the comments and emptied all the spams that had accumulated during my absence.
I hope that all of you will forgive me not responding to each comment individually.
The surgery was a resounding success. The tough part starts now. I am not allowed to put weight on my left leg and have to perforce use a walker for eight weeks. I had a bit of a problem navigating one raised step in the ground floor of our home after return from the hospital but since yesterday, I am able to manage that as well and so am now fairly independent. The round the clock attendant that I had been forced to employ will leave on the 11th after having cared for me the last one week. The hospital is sending a doctor and a nurse across tomorrow to remove the stitches from the surgical incision and I really look forward to a shower afterward.
I may not be able to blog every day for the next few weeks but shall try and do as much as I am able to as I recoup.
Thank you once again.
