My hip replacement surgery will finally happen October 27th 2017. That will be 9 months after I was told 3 to 6 months wait time, but at least it will be before the middle of winter's snow & ice. I have to do pre-op on Oct. 18th.

My husband needs his defibrillator/pacemaker replaced within the next 5 months, & he is having his pre-op on Oct. 5th. They don't just change the batteries.....they replace the whole unit.

I have to go north to Prince George for my surgery, & my husband has to go south to Victoria for his surgery, so we head in opposite directions. He doesn't have his surgery date yet, so it could prove interesting if he ends up with a date close to mine. What will be, will be.

I had a right side mastectomy in 2005 & wear a prosthetic Now my right hip will be replaced with titanium, & plastic, so no matter my politics, I will be a leftist person!

My husband will continue to be the bionic man.......
