Hip Update

Wendy has been doing well. I brought her home just after lunch time today and she is able to get around pretty well. She still has to stay off of her leg most of the time but has to do exercises and get up and move around some to keep the hip joint working and rebuild the muscles.

Hip Replacement

Many of you have heard the Wendy is having hip surgery this Tuesday. I take her in at 6:30 am for surgery that takes place at 9:30am. She is getting what is called Hip Resurfacing. Check out this website if you would like to see what she is having done.

When she is all recuperated she will be able to finally walk without pain and a limp that she has had for the past 20 years. Technology has come along way in helping out joints. Just 5 years ago this surgery was not available

Kent went on a 4 wheeler ride into the Owyee Mountains on South Mountain with our Ward Bishop, Dean Duckett and saw some beautiful country that he use to run cattle on back in the 80's.

Wendy made Sugar Cookies for the Grandkids and Kara had a party here with her friends that evening all made up with costumes.

Kara was made up as Peter Pan and her Friends Liz, Heather, and Cherilyn as something or other, I will let you guess what they are.

It seems that Halloween gets more interesting when teenagers are around. I think they are a little touched. I wonder what her Uncle Fred would call it.
