Update on my hip surgery

First I want to thank all those who responded to my call for positive thoughts, prayers and information
they really helped I pulled them up as I needed up till I had to give up my phone😊
As you can tell I made it thro the surgery
Fine anesthesia was fine only downside so many others doing same missed the PT who would evaluate me going home today
So here I lay might be a good thing as I have history of blood clots so they can monitor that closer but I think it will be fine. Down fall for the nurses they have me on Iíve fluids and it makes me have to pee a lot 😀 and since they havenít had me up for therapy to walk itís bed pan time
But I guess between the nurses and me if thatís the worst then Iíll take it.
I guess I will reevaluate after the trip home either tomorrow or Thurs ( probably will stay line more day at sisters house in case any problems and to let it settle more before a 3 hour car drive over the pass
Hope for good roads!!! What ever day we travel
Thank you all again

Could use some positive thoughts prayer and info

Tomorrow I will head across our mountain passes to have hip surgery on Tuesday.
I chose a doctor on the other side of the mountains because he was much more approachable than the local surgeon I met with.
So the fact that I am not a good traveler (sometimes have to take xanex just for the trip as the passenger of course I can't even drive on the coast at all. It stresses me out . tells you how much the decision to go that way means. I am fairly young for the surgery (55)
I have done research and know that hip surgery ( I am having anterior) generally goes well. But still I am nervous. Such as what if I have some unknown health thing that would effect the anesthesia?
So much has gone wrong lately I feel like I'm under a black cloud. Such as my youngest son had a stroke, then after not catching multiple colds etc this year even when family and co workers where dropping like fly's. Just when I had to go in three weeks ago and start the tests to ok me for surgery I caught a cold just getting over that and the stomach bug that came in the middle and a few other things that have gone on. It feels like something is saying "Don't do it"
So I could use some positive thoughts, prayers, and for those who have either had the surgery or had loved ones that have is this normal anxiety ( mostly I know people that have had the hip surgery say they wish they had not waited so long) I haven't talked to them about the pre-worry thing.
