Yes, it was almost a year ago that I had my last hip surgery. I'm down to walking with a cane and even taking steps here and there with no aide. I doubt if I'll ever walk fulltime without support due to my leg muscles not being strong enough to hold my weight. It's OK with me-I get along just fine.
We'll be headed down to TX at the end of the month for my 1-year check-up and expect a good report. Will send along the news after we finish down there.
