New Year! New Challenge! New Hips!!!!!

 It's all set, my new year is going to include new hips.
One of the many complications of Sickle Cell is Avascular Necrosis, and guess what, I have a double dose of it.  Now, I'm past the grieving stage. I'm done crying. So now I'm in phase of acceptance and solution mode.

I'm done suffering with hip pain; crunching of hip joint and reduced functionality (walking, standing, dancing), and EVERYTHING else the hips do for our body. I'm willing to face my fears, trust God and jump (onto a surgeons table) for the first of two hip replacements.

I'll keep you all posted on the details (good & bad). 

Say a prayer & wish me luck. First appointment January 5th!!!!!
