Usually there is a photo to accompany my favourite things on Friday. Not so today. My FTF this week is LOVE...
It's what I've been feeling since my sweetie brought me home.

He's been right by my side, helping me get in and out of bed, setting up the shower each and every day, making sure my clothes (ok, pjay tops and bottoms) are right and ready.

Best of all, the service! For a guy who didn't cook much...bacon and eggs and such being his forte...he has excelled beyond the call of duty.

Here I am almost three weeks from surgery, and still getting all the committment from my sweetie.

It just doesn't get any better! So thank you sweetie!

Today is week two of the recovery of the hip replacement....I still don't have too much energy but am showering by myself...getting in and out of bed by myself...wahoo!
I can't believe that the above does tire me out though. I do my exercises three to four times a day and after that, I'm done.
I want to be on a beach somewhere when recovered and able to walk without the aid of
My leg feels it me? The therapis says it's common because of swelling etc.
I'm not doing much, have read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo...excellent read. I'd started it last spring and didn't give it a shot...this time it was a super read.
The lovely photo was taken by someone on holiday in the Virgin Islands...bliss!
I forgot to mention that my sweetie is doing an amazing job as my private duty nurse. I tell you that for a guy whose cooking was limited to bacon and eggs, he's become a chef extraordinaire!
I'm so grateful for his love and attention!
