More Photos from Last Spring

Hello everyone, I haven’t been posting much stuff lately. I am getting ready for a hip replacement. I have been doing things like cleaning my house, well, with a heck of a lot of help. My good friend Yvonne, has cleaned my very dirty kitchen, and did a very fantastic job of it. Also my nephews wife, Lori has cleaned all of my upstairs, awesome job of cleaning. I have cleaned a little of my living room, still a little bit to go. Most of my time has gone to running around and doing different appointments and then getting things like my hip kit, and a thingy to raise my toilet seat, also a kind of railing around my toilet. Then I also had to get crutches. a walker, 4 inch high cushions to raise my chair height. I won’t be able to use chairs with wheels on them. I also had to raise my bed. Now all I have to do is pay my bills, and then I am ready to go. Well enough chatter,  here is a few photos for you to look at.

  6. Love those two photos, especially the second one - I think that it captures the struggle for life, of nature pushing and winning through. And I hope your coming hip op goes well. My mum, who is considerably older than you, had both hips done six months apart. She got better. She is well. She continues on. And it looks like you have a good support network of people who help you, who care for you, who want you to be well.
    Nice to see you post some of your work up. Thankyou as well for the helpful hints you have been posting on my blog - I now put the chicks onto boiled egg as soon as they are hatched, but haven't managed to convince Lester to put the strong willed ewe on a leash! God bless you, and I shall send out my thoughts and prayers for you. x

  8. I am glad to see your new post, Horst.

    This art is so beautiful. Yes, what you can do with Photoshop is amazing.

    You are in my prayers and my thoughts, dear Horst. I am awaiting when the process of healing will take place. And it will be soon.

    Greetings from Kaya.

  11. Horst, I read what you expect. I'm sure everything will be fine. My colleague at my age was on the hip joint before and never again walk without a cane and even went with her family to the mountains. I keep my fingers crossed for you good luck and I hope that everything will. I wish you much healing. Thank you for all the nice pictures in your blog. That's not normal photos, but it's art. Many greetings sends you Peter.

  14. Awesome images :) And good luck with your op...I know a couple of people who recently (ish) had hip replacements...both say it's given them a whole new lease of life and one is going back in to get the other hip replaced soon. All the best!

  15. Beautiful as always Horst, there is just something about the way you do your photos that I enjoy very much! Wow! So you are having your hip replaced. Good luck on that and it seems you are doing all of the right stuff. I need both knees redone (which is why I'm disabled). I had only one bad knee, but using a cane just caused the other one to follow suit. I can't make my mind up whether to get one or both done at once. I have an old friend from my home town who has had both done just last week. I plan on calling her after she feels better and ask her how it's going. I can't imagine doing two knees at once! Even with one I don't have anyone to help me afterwards so it's a hard decision. I'm just sorry you are having to go through this but the replacements are so much better now so I feel better about it then I used to. Lol! When are you having it done? Like Zia said, the replacements are really good now and when I have mine I'll be able to walk normally again. Take care and a big hug for you! ♥

  16. Good luck again with your hip and you are so good you probably have awards up the wazoo, but I'm expressing how I feel about you and your work anyway! Congratulations you should visit my site and pick up your blog award. I am passing on the "sunshine award" to you and 9 others on my newest blog. Just copy the instructions on my blog to get your award so you can put it on your site to show it off.

  20. Horst you have been on my mind (yes, it IS true) very much these past two days. I remembered about when the surgery was going to take place and I hope that someone is there to assist! I wish I could assist. I know I can't and it's foolish to even say it but still..I wish.

    When you are able, please update as to your progress and how you feel. xxoo

  22. Thank you everyone, I am back now and on the mend. Will give you more as I get more mobile. I am not having problem with stairs so I am doing very good with them, The physio is going well and that is the first thing they had me do to see if I can climb stairs. After the first try out they said that I am very strong and have no problem with them. They checked me out on them 3 times and said I have a big pass. Thalk with you all later.
