    Totally agree with you Elaine! :D There is nowhere like home. :D
    Good news all round then. Hubby coming up trumps too. :lol::lol: Wishing you a continuation of feeling good and going from strength to strength each new day. A balance of exercising, walking and resting and you will progress well.

    Wishing you the very best,

    The happiest people don't have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything.

    If you can lay down at night knowing in your heart that you made someone's day just a little bit better, you know you had a good day.

    Hi Elaine, good to see you are home and doing well. It's so true, nothing like your own home and bed. I hope your recovery keeps going well and well done to your other half for taking such good care of you. x

    Home is where you heal, I always feel. Now don't overdo things, take the time to rest and get over your surgery - sorry being bossy yet again :oops: .

    Enjoy your new hip and the freedom you'll regain. :wink:

    Luv Legs :D
    Love, Legs x

    Hi Elaine
    I have been home a week after THR, so I know what you are going through! Like you, I thought NHS staff were brilliant, and I am also getting well looked after by my other half.
    I beginning to find the balance between resting and doing too much, (especially when I feel better in the mornings, then I pay for it that night). :roll:
    One thing that surprised me was the amazing pain relief available in hospital - hardly felt a thing for three days!
    Hope your recovery continues well
    Take care

    Hi Elaine
    good you are back home now and on the mend. :lol:
    Hope your road to full recovery is an easy one. careful not to do too much on the days you feel fine as it does take a while to be back to normal and you do have to be a bit patient.
    love Gillx

    Hi Elaine
    Nice to see you are back home again, away from the snoring no doubt!! :shock:
    Take it easy, don`t be tempted to do too much too soon, it is not worth it! (from experience :oops: )

    Hi everyone,
    Thank you so much for your messages of support. I was planning a trip to the garden gate but the weather is awful here. Trust me to have missed most of the sunshine, still spring is here it should get warmer and hopefully more painless for us all.
    Best wishes
    Elaine :lol:

    Hi Elaine, I think that's very sensible to set yourself little goals, not quite the same thing, but after my sections I did this, just a wee bit at a time and increased the difference everyday, even though I thought I could go further, I took the Dr's advice just to pace myself and it really worked.

    A belated 'welcome home' from me and lots of good wishes for a steady recovery. I'm a TKR rather than a THR but I do agree with the 'don't too too much' advice - but easier said than done I know.

    Take care

    What a shame. We've had sun all day in Norfolk! Quite windy though, and a bit chilly, but nice to have sun. Hope tomorrow is a sunny day for you and you can go for your walk. Love Sue
