If it wasn’t for a bad hamstring, I’d be doing amazingly well at this point.  We’re one week out after the operation now and I’m so far ahead of where I thought I’d be its not funny.  You can’t compare a hip replacement to a knee replacement.  You just can’t.  To illustrate that, it took me about 4 weeks after my knees were replaced to get to where I am right now in the healing process.  Actually, that’s a little off.  Two days ago I was at the 4 week point.  Its all about rebuilding strength and letting my body heal around the joint.  But the joint itself?  Fine.  Some pain, but I imagine that has more to do with the large metal spike in my bone then anything else.

Sex is still a little bit away though.  Just not enough strength or stamina in the leg yet.  But I don’t think its as far away as I feared it might before I had the surgery.  I’ve been teasing Grace off and on.  Little things like grabbing her hair and such.  Last night I arm wrestled her.  Well, kind of.   I just kept my arm in one position while she tried to move it while I kept encouraging her to win.  I didn’t do it to be an asshole, I did it to show her that just because my strength hasn’t returned in my right leg it doesn’t mean I can’t still overpower her.  That even in this state, I can be more then a match for her.  She loves that feeling and I didn’t want her to go very long without feeling it.
