There have been some other things to do in order to get ready. One of them was making sure I went to the dentist. Sounds odd, right? Apparently having dental work done post surgery requires antibiotics to keep any possible blood infection from going to the surgery site so they ask for a check up and any work needed to be completed before surgery. This is a risk, and I made sure I went. I am not a fan of dental work, even the cleaning. Fortunately, even though it has been a looooong time, I was cavity free and complication free. My teeth were cleaned and polished and I was given a new tooth brush and sent on my way!

Still getting ready.
So far, I have attended a bunch of classes geared towards getting my family and I ready for surgery. Last week, Hubby and I attended the 'Total Hip Replacement' class and learned all about what to do, what not to do, how to move, how to set up the house, and all sorts of goodness. As per usual, we were the youngest ones in the class by at least 25-30 years. I was the only one in that class getting a ceramic hip and not a metal hip, so I saved some of my questions for the end of the class. I didn't want to be the one slowing the class down. Tomorrow we attend one more class about preparing for surgery. After that, I believe we just have the pre surgery hospital visit where I will get a tour, meet with the therapists and anethatists and basically spend the day getting prepared for the big day!
