Simply a moment

Whilst I sit at my desk at work, staring at my PC screen not reading what's on it I find that alexa's simply a moment crosses my mind. A time for pausing, noticing and recording. I've been wanting to join in for a while now and found that today was all about reflection. 
The words on the screen in front of me are a blur. My mind today is elsewhere. Far far away thinking. I see the man in front of me, talking. Talking to me. He turns to the screen to the left of me, shows me an image. He keeps talking, I hear myself ask questions. He speaks of hip replacements, operations and recovery times. Is he really talking to me. Am I too young. It seems not.

It could be worse. It is fixable. No more pain. Oh to sleep through the night again. Think positive.

  6. Oh Louise - I was talking to someone yesterday who wasn't using their stick and told me happily that they are fully recovered after their hip op. "No more pain, walking without my stick - I've completely given it up, oh and it has changed my life." I hope it goes smoothly and that yes, you get to sleep through the night. Having just started that one again I know how much I appreciate a pain free night. Thinking of you.

  7. I'm hoping that in a few months from now you'll be telling us about lots of pain free moments :) I have a friend my age who has had both hips replaced and hasn't looked back. She'd recommend it x

  8. This is far more than a Simple Moment Louise, and you show how in a few words something that is an enormous event can be described. I do feel for you with what lies ahead and hope the outcome is both successful and grants you the freedom of a life without pain. x

  12. Oh my goodness, Louise, your words are so very powerful ... You capture perfectly that feeling of being there but not feeling as if one is ... I hope you make a decision that is right for you. (As a PS a young friend of mine had it done and is thrilled.). Thank-you so much for taking part :).

  13. I understand watching those types of videos, good luck with your surgery. Everyone I know says there is immediate relief so there is that to look forward to and good sleep :)

  18. Oh, I hope it all works out okay for you. Sleep is what keeps me sane, I cannot imagine it being interrupted all the time. Hang in there!

  19. Oh dear my dear - not what you wanted to contemplate at all, though a friend of mine (possibly a little older than you) has had both done and has a new lease of life in her hockey refereeing!

  20. Oh Louise I'm sorry, that must be a really hard thing to hear. But I'm sure it will work out well for you and give you less pain and more peace. Sending hugs xxx
