Doctors, Tires and Toilets

I woke up this AM fully expecting to have a really great day.  I had my 1st follow-up appt with my surgeon, after which I was going to Sears to get much needed (and long awaited) new tires for my Tahoe and THEN, I was/am supposed to get my hair color done this afternoon.  That's about 2 weeks over-due.  Ick!  So, here's how it went......

Went to the DR, didn't even get to see HIM, but  saw one of his PAs, which is fine.  My X-Rays looked good, my progress and healing is all exceptional, but.........none, as in N.O.N.E. of my restrictions are lifted, except driving.  For 3  (THREE) months more!  I was crushed.  This DR is so over cautious.  I guess that can be a good thing, but man!  I did tell them that some of these restrictions (like the way I have to sit) are a wee bit hard on my back.  His reply was that if I was to dislocate my hip, I'd forget I even had a back!  Well, allllrighty then.....

So I go to Sears, so not in the mood to wait for tires and they tell me it will be a 2 1/1- 3 hour wait.  WTF?  No way was i gonna even attempt to sit there that long, even with my Nook in my purse!

Now, let's go back to last night......when I went to the potty and the toilet plugged... I plunged and plunged til I could plunge no more and called called upstairs for assistance.  By the time it was all said and done, BOTH toilets upstairs were backed up as well as the bathtub in one bathroom and the shower in the other.  Thank God we have a toilet downstairs....and it works.  So HE was supposed to have an early day of it today and be able to meet the plumber here this aft.  But NOOOO.  I just get a call and he told me the plumber (friend of his) is gonna try to be here before 2:00 (hair appt time) and for me to just let him in, show him where to go and it's okay to leave him..........Good grief.  It's 1:45.  He better be getting here!  Only takes me 4-5 minutes to get to Becky's, but still.

I'm thinking it might not be a good day to get my hair colored, but then again I am optimistic that she will make my day!  **sigh**

Oh, and BTW.  When you have one Brand New Hip and the other one NEEDS to be Brand New, it can make ones sex life......shall we say, a wee bit interesting......not!  Just sayin'.  Thought all y'all needed to know.

Based on what type of day you have had so fair, I would say that any thought of sex is TMI....and when did THAT get taken off your list of restrictions anyway? Sounds more difficult than driving a car for goodness sakes.

Sex was never on my list of restrictions.....no one ever mentioned it so I took it upon myself to 'experiment'. Very distracting to have to concentrate on where that right leg is all the time! Then there's that guy that's afraid of hurting you. It almost wasn't worth it....but the key word is 'almost'. Geez.....when did thinking of sex stuff start 'upsetting' you?? Are you sure that's the right word, my friend?? LMAO ♥♥♥

No thanks! One day of that was enough! especially since my hair decided to get involved and come out a crazy color, as well. Maybe a reaction to the titanium in my hip. Hmmmmm.......all this Bionic stuff isn't all it's cracked up to be. On my way now to get my hair "fixed" some more. Weeeeeeeeeee.........

Good lord. After all this they're reinstating the driving ban? Blergh. Must be a male doctor. Obviously doesn't have a clue!
