Elbow Replacement


  

The healing began at 3am when the elevator doors opened in NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital and 5 oh-so-young faces announced, "We're Dr. Jobin's team."  Suddenly I knew I was going to be okay. 

13 hours earlier, while walking my horse, I had fallen down an icy hill 75 blizzard-blowing miles away in Sussex, N.J.  The nearest hospital was not prepared to take on an 82-year old lady with a shattered-to-dust RIGHT (oh, no)! elbow.  Fortunately, Dr. Jobin was.

After a thorough examination to establish that I was healthy enough to withstand the stress of an elbow implant operation, and determined and disciplined enough to accept the demands of a 9 to 12 month rehab recovery program, Dr. Jobin gave me a new stainless steel elbow.  And my active, independent life back.

I am 84 now.  No longer riding my horse of playing tennis, but still a working actress, enjoying living alone in my own home with my new elbow.  Pain free, with all the action of my old elbow.  Juggling my cats' 10-lb. cat litter bags and...final triumph:  putiing on earrings!

Dr. Jobin had to move my funny bone around a little to accommodate my new elbow, but he was careful to leave my sense of humor.
