Who says I’m not dedicated?

So Tuesday’s surgery is O-VER and I am officially bionic in both hips. That means I’ll leap higher, run faster, write snarkier (ohdear), and generally be more insufferable because I’m finally pain free after many years.

Surgery went so well that the doc released me a day early. Upon getting home, I realized the walker was getting in my way, so I tossed it aside and started using the cane instead. Talk about a Tiny Tim moment. Who gets a hip ripped out and has a new one pounded in and doesn’t need a walker for a while? So the walker is back in the garage and the cane is tootling me around now.

But while I was in the hoosgow for a couple days, I never forgot my first love – publishing. Upon coming out of my drug-induced fog in Recovery, I began banging out an email to one of my authors. The nurses started cracking up. I peeled my eyes open and mumbled out a, “What…the job waits for no one.”

One of the nurses kindly wrapped her fingers around mine and suggested my fake keyboard, made up entirely of heating blankets, could hold off for a bit and, perhaps, I could write a real one in a few hours. Guffaw. Truly one of the dumbest things I’ve done in a while. Just don’t call me undedicated.

  4. Well, I got one of your REAL emails from the hospital, so I know you’re dedicated. 🙂 I bet you could kick Lindsay Wagner’s rear in a race, even with the cane. 🙂 Keep getting better!

  5. Ahem…yes, you were the author I was trying valiantly to email in the Recovery room. What a dork I am.

  6. That’s too funny. So glad to hear your surgery went well and you are recovering so quickly. 🙂

    Aloha Lynn,

    So I should scratch the new heating blanket I wanted to send you for Christmas, the one made by that new company, Querty Pharm. Inc.

    Fare thee well, and speedy recovery.
