Hip Replacement Surgery Tip #77: Post Surgery Issues – Moron Or Hand Of God?

So… for the first few days after arriving home from hip replacement surgery, well, I was still a bit spacey (not unusual).

lost in the fridge

I hobbled on crutches to the fridge and was looking for relish. Couldn’t see, couldn’t find it. It just wasn’t there. I closed the fridge door and then my wife told me to sit down and then asked what I was trying to find. “Never mind,” I said. The burger would be fine without it. My wife persisted and I finally said, “Relish.”

I said, “No.”  I was on the couch with legs lifted and still icing my hip, so I really couldn’t help look for it.

The next morning my wife opens the same drawer, and, lo and behold, the blade is laying right on top of a pile of pens. My wife turns to me and asks, “Did you put that there?”

“Nope,” I replied.

My wife says, “Well, how did it get there? It must have been Aunt Nina (deceased). She must have found it for me.”

Now I may have been greatly limited in my mobility and judgement, but I deduced it was just like the relish – it was there but she couldn’t see it.

She emphatically proclaimed, “I would have seen it! It wasn’t there yesterday!”

Rather than fight the battle, I just agreed.

I may have had post surgery blues, but I was still smart enough to realize that I was a moron, and my wife had been blessed by the hand of God.

Well… maybe it was God, or I was just spacey, but the same pre-surgery truism also exists after surgery, and that is…
