Getting ready for surgery.....(a good laugh)

Post by LilSparkPlug » Tue May 13, 2008 9:20 pm

So I have to have hip surgery on June 4th, and its right in the middle of car show season. Bigtime bummer. Well today I get a package in the mail from one of my very good, very crazy (just like me...sick sense of humor) friends. The package is exceptionally large and I was quite surprised...I didn't know what to expect.

Well in preparation for my surgery...I now have PANTHER PINK crutches!!!!! HA HA :laughing3: I lost it when I opened the box. They match well too. At least I can match the car when I hobble around the shows/meets for three weeks.

Yes I should have explained that a bit more. Six years ago I was rear ended by a drunk. I was stop dead he was going almost 60mph. Because my right leg was on the brake it caused serious trauma to the joint. Now I've found a doctor that specializes in these procedures up in Boston, and I can't wait to have it done so I'm pain free. As of the current moment I can only wear Nike Shox, and can only stand for two hours before excruiciating pain sets in.

He will burr me out a new socket and fix my labrum. I'm excited....in a way, but nervous as well :)

This should be in O/T media, but since you're going for surgery, I think I can let it go :P

Those crutches are awesome, and best of luck with the surgery, make sure you keep your friends here at 2GN updated with it!!

Definatly the coolest crutches that I have ever seen. :thumbup:

Sorry about your hip, modern medicine is a great thing, Thats why I plan to go into medicine as a career. I hate hearing about great people getting hurt and suffering pain when no action of their own has caused it. Good luck with your surgery, and you'll be in my prayers.

I hope that the surgery is a very, very, very successful one. And that you have a speedy and full recovery. It's truly amazing what some doctors can do these days.

Those are some freaking awesome crutches your friend got for you. Hopefully you wont be needing them for very long.

wow those crutches are kick ass, but that sucks so much about the surgery good luck with it I know how annoying joint pain can be. When you are back up and around you should figure out a way to prop the hood up with the crutches at shows.

Good luck with the surgery. Is someone still taking your car to shows?

No one drives my car but me, so unless I'm able to drive him that first weekend, he won't go to a show he'll have the weekend off ha ha. Once I'm able to drive (even if I need to rely on the crutches) I'll be taking him myself :)

I think the crutches would be too tall to prop the hood up being that I'm 5'11" and these are for 5'10" to 6'4". They are definitely unique thats for sure lol.

damn... you're a tall girl. i'm willing to bet if you set them as tall as they go and put them back towards the hinges they'd do the trick... try it, post some pics :D

oh yeah, i know i've told you good luck in another thread... but good luck
