Update -- well, he didn't have the surgery after all -- little issue with his blood work, so he will be re-scheduling it at some point in the future. Thank you all for your prayers and concern.
On Tuesday, July 1st, my sweet hub a/k/a Mr. Tennis, will become somewhat of a bionic man. Yep, that's right .. . he's having right hip replacement surgery. He's such a great guy and wonderful father -- I hate for him to have been in such pain from that darn bad hip! He told me last week that he's "excited" (yes, he said excited) about the surgery. Wow -- you know he's been feeling bad to be excited about having his hip replaced. It's actually been really bothering him for at least the last four years.
Up until recently, just the last year or so, he ignored it and kept up with his tennis, golf, gardening and household projects. But, it became too painful and he quit playing tennis and golf --his fav sports. And, the pain and discomfort has kept him from doing some of the fun stuff with the fam. He can't wait to feel better so that he can go bike-riding on the bicycle built for two with Maddy, take her swimming again or for a walk, teach the boys how to do home-improvement projects. He's really young to have a hip replaced, but he has a congenital problem contributing to it along with degenerative arthritis. We're looking forward to a speedy recovery! Here's some photos of the great guy in our house that we call Mr. Tennis!! And isn't he handsome!?!! If you're so inclined, please say a prayer for him and send all healing thoughts our way. Love you honey -- feel better soon!
