My lovely daughter has been taking care of my properties and dogs while I am in California to get a hip replacement. She said she is tired of having to answer people’s questions so, for those of you who give a hoot, here’s where I stand. (This also points out the need for a total overhaul of our health care/insurance system.)
Two years ago I on the way out to Long Caye at Lighthouse I fell from the flying bridge to the deck below because I tried to come down the ladder facing forward. Since I had recently had the right knee replaced I landed full force on my left foot; breaking some toes. What I did not realize is that I had severely damaged that hip. It has steadily deteriorated to the point I could barely walk with assistance.
I arrived in California on June 3rd and finally have a surgery date of September 3rd. The staff thinks I should be grateful that I got it so quickly. HA HA HA.
I will spend 3 weeks in a care facility and have a reservation to return to my island paradise on September 25th. Fortunately I had enough frequent flier miles to book 1st class so the trip should not be too difficult. Unfortunately all my diving buddies here who normally would be eager to travel with me are feeling the economy crunch so I will be traveling alone.
I am looking forward to again walking upright on the beach with my dogs. Thank goodness for this message board where I can maintain my connection. I miss my island friends and am grateful for all the good vibes they send my way.
