The Spottiness of Challenges

Hello, my dear friends. I want to apologize and explain the spottiness of the Photo a Week Challenges lately. In October, I started having significant pain in my right hip. At first, we thought it was a pinched nerve or maybe my Sciatica. After working with our chiropractor for a couple of months, it was getting worse instead of better, and he recommended seeing our regular doctor and getting x-rays. Turns out, I have a genetic issue with my hips, and I will be having hip surgery in a couple of weeks. Dealing with the pain and all that goes with it has limited my activities significantly (matching the pain in the hip). As a result, I have been taking fewer photos and getting online less. Sitting at a computer is one of the activities that brings on the pain, so I have to limit my time at the keyboard.

Once I have fully recovered from the surgery, the challenges hopefully will again come fast and furiously. In the meantime, keep taking lots of wonderful photos and sharing them with all of us.

  1. Nancy, sending you healing vibes now as you prepare for your surgery and also during and in your post-op recovery time. Being unable to sit is a real pain and I know you’re in good hands there. Don’t sweat the blog stuff! Take care

  2. Sorry you have to go through this Nadia. But at least something can be done about your pain. Wishing you a successful surgery and a smooth and fast time of readjustment!

  3. The bad news – you are in pain despite working hard to address it. The good news – you now know what’s causing the problem and how to fix it. Wishing you an easy surgery and a fast recovery.

  4. Oh Nancy so sorry to hear you are in pain.. I know what that pain is like.. I’ve had both hips replaced. Take it easy for the first 3 months and it won’t be long before you are back on your feet and in full swing. Take care.. hope the surgery went OK for you xx
