Well.. Its hard to say, I just kinda woke up this way.
I had what was diagnosed as a seizure, which left me unconscious for a few days. Doctors were pretty outspoken that I should not have survived.
Pretty strange though.. The femoral head was completely drained of blood, which I was told indicates it had been broken for weeks. But, thats the kind
of break you notice, so its hard to say what happened. Lots and lots of strangeness. I also had pretty severe nerve damage in the foot of the leg that
*didnt* have the hip replacement.
After surgery, I had to have my legs strapped into this wonderful wedge pillow that kept my feet three feet apart at all times. Had to wear it for a
few weeks. It was really wonderful. Did I mention how wonderful it was? Everybody loves stuff like that. Oof, sarcasm overload, hold on..
I have had lots of spinal imaging at this point (this all started over a decade ago now). Basically, most of my thoracic region is broken (8
vertebrae). Ive lost 4 inches in height! And due to some mystery bone disorder, those spinal fractures dont heal and just stay in the acute fracture
stage. Newest XRay showed no new fractures though. I also have four or so herniated discs in my lower back, but for the most part, they aren't a big
Ive broken the hip a couple times, my back, ribs, etc. At the very least, Im happy the hip replacement healed. Its been an.. Interesting.. Journey.
Im genuinely appreciative of your prayers, thank you
