gratitude-a-thon day 1023: hip hip hooray

Damn, I miss McDreamy.

Modern medicine, all hail.

My friend just had her hip replaced. My sister had hers done a few months ago. My husband had two done in his late forties. Only 50 years ago, this was a big deal operation, and now it’s like going through the Dunkin’ Donuts drive through (not really, at all, but sort of). My point is these people would be wheelchair bound, if not for this perfected bit of surgical magic.

The truth is that while healthcare is all sorts of crazy right now, from doctor’s being able to spend less time with patients to Obamacare vs. Trumpdoesn’tcare, and the fact that Grey’s Anatomy has completely jumped shark, there are still some things that are totally miraculous.

And hip hip fucking hooray for that!
