    Thinking of you today and sending you lots of good luck. Hope the surgery goes as planned and you're soon on the mend. I guess a hospital gown is as good a Halloween costume as any but keep those strings tied tight! It's chilly out! ;)

    Wishing you the very best,

  • Ron, I hope all goes nice and smooth! surgery is not the time for surprises! let's keep them for the trick or treaters :)

  • Wishing you well Ron for your hip replacement surgery.
    Hope you'll be hopping around happily very soon!

    Seriously, I hope that your surgery goes to plan and that you will have very good pain control as you get under way in your recovery.

    Looking forward to hearing from you as to how you are doing. :-)

  • My goodness you are going to be a bionic, new man by the time all is said and done. My mom had several joint replacements due to advanced OA. Things have improved a great deal since then. It will be so wonderful for you, once recovered, to have less or no pain in that hip anymore!

    Best to you,

    I hope that all went well yesterday and that you had a restful night.

    Does anyone know if Ron lost power from the snowstorm the other day? I haven't heard from him since before the power outages...
