As most all of pervia knows DeDe had surgery today to replace her hip. Well she finally got taken down to the OR 2 hours late. She was gone for about 3 hours, got back to her room around 3:30 local time. She has spent the time since then sleeping off the drugs and pain. I have spent the time running to fetch ice water or helping her roll over a bit to get more comfortable, or fluffing her pillow, ya know just hovering around trying to find something I can do to help her. We heard from a nurse that DeDe got a partial hip replacement instead of the full that we were told she would have done. The doctor has not been by to talk to us yet so I am choosing to think of the change in plan as a positive thing.

I would like to thank each and everyone of you for your kind words and prayers, they mean a lot to us both.

I will try to keep everyone updated here in this blog or in chat as I learn things and have time to post.

Thank you Roger for updating us. We are all hoping for the best for our DeDe And I'm hoping this being just a partial replacement is a positive thing too.

Give her my love...and tell her I said to behave, not give the nurses a hard let you do that.

Loves to both of ya!

Now get back to taking care of her!

Thank you for the update Roger. Glad to here it went O.K.,

Glad to hear she's doing ok! Just a thought but when they say she has to get up and walk......(which they will do very soon!) tell her we'll all give her a kudo if she does it! That might get her up and moving sooner! Give her hugs and love from all of us!

Keep her spirits up and give her our best for a speedy recovery.

UPDATE 8:30 local time
DeDe woke up and ate a jello cup and 2 sips of broth before nodding of again with the straw stuck up her nose blowing bubbles in a cup of chicken broth. Just before loosing consciousness she stated that the pain inside her hip was no longer there. WOOOOOHOOOO success.

Mar 18 @ 9:45PM

Roger thank you so much for letting everyone know how De is. I have been working so much but have thought about calling often to find out. I just didn't want to disturb you. Give De all my love and I wish she is better soon. Please tell her I miss our talks and that my prayers are with her and you both. I hope she is better soon and back to her normal self. You both take care and I will check back asap to see how she is doing.
My love to you both,

Mar 19 @ 2:30PM  
Glad to hear Dede is doing great!! Here's hoping for a speedy recovery!!

DeDe had physical therapy this morning and was able to walk around the room a bit, course now she is hurting. The nasty meanies here tried to make her eat this acky stuff that they call food, but DeDe is too smart for them, I will sneek out through the secret basement tunnel later and smuggle in a juicy double cheese burger and onion rings with chili sauce and a chocky malt to hide under her pillow for them late night cravings she has.

Again I don't know how to thank you all enough for your words and thoughts, DeDe was able to read the blog comments left so far at around 2 am last night.

Mar 19 @ 7:23PM  
hugs roger and give her one from me too. sneak in a side of chilli cheese fries on me.


Mar 19 @ 7:58PM  
Thank you so much Roger for the update. I'm glad she was up and able to walk around some. And goodness...they are trying to force her to eat that slop????? Good thing she has you to sneak her in some real food.

Give her hugs for me, tell her I luv her and am hoping she has a speedy recovery.
