On Tuesday, goodwitch779 checks in at Mt. Diablo Medical Center, to have her left hip replaced by an artifice, as they used to call advanced gadgets. She has been ready for this for a long time, and the insurance company finally agreed. I will be working part-time, or not working at all and collecting reduced pay, for three weeks, to stay home and take care of her. We are hoping that after three weeks she will be able to take care of herself for a few hours at a time, and several of her friends have volunteered to check in and help her if she needs something.
My Wife has an incredibly high tolerance for pain, but a very slow healing factor. The two do not always go well together.
So things are going to be somewhat erratic here at Offhand Manor. But if all goes well, our next anniversary will be on a cruise ship somewhere, and we will dance.
