INFORMATION
The time to write poetry is when the heart is worn. From the life of travels and scorn. Then does it seem to be open to the muse. Seeking to be released for the world to please.
That is about what my philosophy of life is now. To be a poet with life to give time for the here and the now.

danpald: Doctor visit today went well. Already walking with only a cane and feeling no pain nor limp. Twelve days after the surgery and now a month before another visit to the doctor. All is going well just boring when not going to work.

danpald: Well today is one week after my hip replacement. I decided it was time to walk along the pathway along side my apartments.
That means I went up and down 18 steps three times.
The first walk lasted about 20 minutes in the cool morning, trying not to over do the walking.
Second time I walked for 30 minutes and felt good at the end. Enjoyed even walking with a little rain softly falling and hear the thunder and seeing some lightening.
The third time I walked for one hour, some sprinkles and my legs felt better finally not so stiff just feeling a little tired.
I have had only my one aspirin a day and twice taken something for pain. The pain medicine is prn (as needed) every four hours for seven days. That means I still have pain medicine if needed but do not have any pans of taken anything until I retire for the night. I am still using the walker but only to push and do not need for weight bearing, I am almost ready for the cane instead. I will see how this goes but all looks very good before my doctor visit next Monday.

    Jannypan (Jan) : CONGRATULATIONS! You are doing so well. Cool of the morning? Not here--near 80& early then 102* for our high 2 days now. Rain? Not here lately--we have had 1/3 inch since January 1 of this year. Keep up the great work!

danpald: Thank you for the prayers and best wishes.
It is remarkable today. I had the surgery yesterday and less than 24 hours later was released from the hospital!
I expected to be there until Friday but only one day!
Already feel better than I have for months. Some pain but it is different pain and relieved as I walk and do exercises. I have much less pain already! Still I do need to be careful and recover completely. I do get tired more now of sitting long time or lying in the bed need to walk more and I actually enjoy walking again!

Thanks for the prayers and notes. A special thanks to Robyn who has infoirmed so many of my surgery.

    Chrissy710 : Hi Dan

    A new hip for Dan
    That was his plan
    The old one out,
    At last; did shout
    The new one in
    Exercise begin
    To feel no pain
    And walk again
    That will be great
    Best wishes mate

    Cheers Christine

    aryr: I am so glad you are well on your way to a great recovery. A suggestion is first do not over do things and secondly follow and do your recommended exercises. Blessings.

    Cass Carlton: Dear Dan, I wish you a speedy recovery from your surgery and share a slight green tinge of envy. I will probably need a hip replacement some time in the not too distant future, so all you are going through at present I have yet to face. I am glad you are feeling better and will hold you in my prayers for seven days from today. all the best Cass Carlton

    Phyllis Stewart: Dan, I hope you're doing well after the surgery. My aunt had that and was walking with a cane in a matter of days, pain-free. May you enjoy your new bionic implant. LOL!

    Mustang Patty: Hi, Dan;
    I know you will be back to yourself in no time. I've read about so many people regaining strength and vigor they haven't had in years.

    krys123: I just got out of the hospital May 9 for osteomyelitis on my bones in my right foot. Spent seven days. You're kinda lucky you'll only spend 3 to 5 days and you'll be up on Adam for dancing within a week. I did two hip surgeries in one replacement of the replacement. You'll be dancing the jig in no time . Good luck and God bless you and take care and have a good one.

danpald: Have an appointment this coming Monday about my right hip needing repaired. Hope soon to be back into the mood to write and review. Most of the time I just have been more concerned about my missing right hip.
April 12, 2018 at 2:05PM
    Susanjohn: Feel better soon :-)
    April 13, 2018 at 4:23PM

danpald: I am very glad to see the reviews for my tribute to Norma McCorvey. I met her when working many years ago for the Right to Life movement and heard her story many years ago. Still it is now like yesterday and still the fight goes forward.
We can never give up the fight for innocent human life from the womb to natural death. I have done very little but still will fight to the end for the unborn child and the victims of Abortion. Both women and men have been suffering too long from the effects against life and natural love.
Thank you all for reading and your kind reviews to my poems for Norma McCorvey (1947-2017)

danpald: The year with Fairies is now complete. I will move to other themes but the Fairies will return now and again. It was an adventure writing with only one protagonist for the entire year and stay fresh. Now I will turn to other themes and let my mind roam my heart fly and the keys sing with poetic dreams.
September 27, 2016 at 2:18PM
    Dean Kuch: Congratulations on the completion of your Faeries themed poetry, Dan.
    All the best to you with your future endeavors.

danpald: Holy Week has come to peek
With the need for souls to weep
For the reality of Jesus' death
Will find Joy in His return

Happy Easter soon to come reality.
