Krazy glue, craft sticks and duct tape...

... I'm going to invest in these products and try to piece dh back together again. On June 3rd,Jimmy had hip surgery to repair cartlidge damage he had sustained back in December, though the procedure done will make him more comfortable for the time being - a hip replacement is inevitable.He went back to work on Monday.Last week he was having lower abdominal discomfort,went to see his gp and found out he has double hernias which require surgery- that is scheduled for June 22. He'll be home for another 3 weeks.He claims since he has lost 33 pounds he is falling apart!! He doesn't take in to account that in his physical line of work the body can only take so much wear an tear,so at 49 years old his joints are screaming for mercy!!! He may be falling apart but, I'll keep him!!!
I didn't post of any of this before because in light of our losing Buck it seems so trivial. Love and energy, Vicki

I think you have all the necessary things to keep him together - give him my best! Don't forget the fermented grape sedative

I work for orthopaedic surgeons. That's a big surgery a hip replacement, but I've seen so many patients that have gone through it that are thankful there's something out there that can make their life so much more comfortable.

As far as the hernia repair, one of the surgeons had the procedure done a couple weeks ago on a Tuesday and was running clinic that Friday. His was inguinal.
