This Week In The Loft

Dreading the Week Ahead

I’m not looking forward to this week at all.   I have known it has been coming for the past 6 months.   This week I will be checking in to the Mercy Hospital here in Melbourne to fix an old injury in my hip.   Some damage to my hip has caused a bone spur to grow over time and eventually limiting my leg movement.   Late last year it started to become very painful.   So this week I will be undergoing something called Hip Arthroscopy with one of the best orthopedic surgeons in town.  It’s only a short stay in the hospital and will be on crutches for a little while afterwards.   I just hope I do’t have to see the torture devices (above) before I go under.   This machine will be used to dislocate my leg.  That’s right…  REMOVE MY LEG!
I’m really not looking forward to it at all.   I have been having lots of sleepless nights.   I can’t wait till this time next week when it’s all over.
