Eight weeks later

Today marks eight weeks since my hip surgery, and I think I can safely declare it a total success. Despite a little remaining muscle weakness, I can walk quite normally; and except for occasional residual soreness, there is no pain at all. It has been over a year since I could really say either of those things.

One person who remembers how I used to walk describes this as "like a miracle", and I'm inclined to agree, but with an important caveat. What gave me my life back was technology, and human knowledge and skill. No prayers, crystals, faith healing, or any such superstitions were involved, nor would they have done me the slightest good. Like all miracles that actually happen, this one was 100% human-made.
