Quick Update

Just letting everyone know Laura had her hip replacement surgery this morning. It all went very well, and she’s already home.

She’s already done steps, and is ready to start PT.

You can’t keep a Cranky Publicist down for long!

  6. So glad to hear the surgery went well. Tell Laura to hang in there, I had it done 2 years ago and it was the best thing I could have done. The first three weeks following surgery are the toughest – just take the pain meds and do the therapy and you will be feeling better in no time at all.

  7. Speedy recovery wishes and healing energy her way from Montana. She’ll be running marathons again soon 🙂 I also want to say how much I admire your friendship. Friendships like this are rare.

  8. Many blessings to all from Hawaii. So glad to hear Laura is recovering well. Stay safe and healthy.


  9. Wishing Laura a speedy recovery! It’s all about the attitude and p.t.! If you have a good attitude and do the p.t. every day (several times a day, as prescribed), you’ll be pain free and walking tall in no time.

    Best wishes from one Laura to another Laura! 🦋

  14. I am waiting to have same op. Am petrified. 🤗 Sending good healing vibes and wishes she is very brave. 🤗 Stay Safe all of you. From huge Nora reader and collected of her books Laura having surgery and home in one day wow. Go girl. fro. UK. Xx

    1. One day procedures are more common now with the advent of surgery centers (and COVID hasn’t made staying around hospitals a good idea). They won’t make you leave until you are cleared as able to ambulate to the satisfaction of the PT staff. It will be seven weeks since my surgery on this Thursday! Doing the PT and staying with the program works. Just remember to be good to yourself and get lots of rest. You’ll be great!

  15. Such wonderful news. So pleased she is doing so well and wish her a speedy recovery.

  17. I am so glad you finally had your surgery, Laura. Sending positive healing energy your way.

  18. Im happy for Laura that its behind her. Waiting for surgery is the worst. Having seen Laura in action at a RWA here in NYC , I’m sure she gonna be up and running b4 u know it. This time pain free. Looking forward to my next ID fix.

  19. Great news! Best wishes for a quick recovery. I’m sure Laura will be feeling much better soon. Stay safe and well….

  20. Fantastic news!! Hope her healing process is short, and goes well

  21. Excellent! I quit using the Walker in the first week and just used a cane. Then I walked every day gradually increasing the distance. Laura should ace her PT!

  22. Congrats to you, Laura! Welcome to the Cyborg Club. I know you’re going to be great. Get lots of rest! I’m almost 7weeks in and so happy with it. Stay on the program and my thoughts are with you.
