Bionic Woman…

Last week I participated in an interesting staycation.

I traveled east and settled into a room with a lovely river view.

Three hours before my scheduled departure it was a priority to validate my pre-bionic prowess by taking a final spin and weights class which, apparently, was the chatter surrounding my surgery in the operating room.

Upon my arrival at Hospital for Special Surgery, I was welcomed with open arms.

Run like a well oiled machine, I entered the double doors and once registered I was stripped down, wrapped up and deposited into one of the dozens of operating rooms, gently knocked out and turned into a bionic woman.

Presently, I am unable to leap tall buildings, but hopefully, I will be more malleable in a few months.

There are notable restrictions, an involved rehab, but it’s Hip to be Square and Repaired.

A shout out to the impressive orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Amar Ranawat, his efficient office staff and the amazing female anesthesiologist (I cannot remember her name…blame it on the drugs) and her dazzling assistant, Wendy…a truly winning team.

And now for a rousing chorus of, I’m Walking On Sunshine…Wooah.
