Helle everyone! Hope you are all going to have a great weekend... Dr Steyn (orthopedic surgeon) gave me a call this morning and mentioned that he has looked at the CT scan and it is clear that the hip is too messed up to fix and the only option available is a hip replacement operation, he said that he would try and put in the hard ceramic variety which lasts longer but that it would depend on how many bullet fragments are in the area if there are too many he will not be able to use the ceramic variety.. Anyway.. He is planning to do the operation next week Friday - 30 August 2013 and I need to be at the hospital at 08h00 and the operation will be done that afternoon.. Not looking forward to operation but glad it's eventually going to be sorted out... Thanks for all the messages

Morning everyone! Thanks again for all the well wishes, messages & prayers. I'm now in the high care unit and just finished my bed bath for the day @ 04h15... You got to love hospitals! Pain seems okay.. Had lots of nausea last night and brought up any water or anything I tried to drink (I think because of anesthetic) seems better this morning, taking small sips and its staying down. Lots of blood in the wound drain emptied twice already ... Otherwise feel okay and hope you all have a great & blessed day!
