Another Milestone

I walked into my surgeon's office today without my cane. And was pronounced fit. I saw my x-ray - this extremely solid looking joint looking as if it has absolutely no intention of dislocating ever. He (my surgeon) said "congratulations, your hip will only keep on getting better from now on."

Oh, and I went swimming on Monday and today for the first time since before the surgery. That felt really good, too. It was great to get the heart racing and to move the rest of my body. I'm so much appreciating my body these days: feeling strong and fit and healthy.

    Robinson's death has hit me hard. Also, the general feeling of doglessness. I haven't been without a dog, except for when on holiday, for eighteen…

    My tribute to Robinson, blogged elsewhere.
