A few of you, (very few) have wondered where I’ve been the past few weeks. Well, my husband had a total hip replacement at the very young age of 46. It was done at the Hospital for Special Surgery (formerly known as the Hospital for the Ruptured and Crippled. I am not making that up). It is an amazing hospital and the husband is doing phenominally well! As you can see in the x-ray above, he has a brand-new titanium alloy hip which should bring up his trade-in value nicely.

I have to say, as far as hospitals go, HSS is one helluva place. I have never been in a nicer, cleaner hospital where the nurses actually come IMMEDIATELY when you call. A volunteer came on hubby’s 2nd day and brought him a beautiful rose in a bud vase and on his discharge day they brought him a carnation with breakfast.  This can’t be a NYC hospital!!!!!

When I was in the hospital in the fall for surgery, I went from ICU to I DON’T C U. (That line was blatantly stolen from a friend.)

I finally got a chance to go back to painting class and will be posting another in-progress painting soon.
