Why Men Don't Give Birth

How was your weekend? Mine was, should we say, interesting... My husband has had a problem with his hip since he was a little boy and this weekend, he got a new one.

I just gave him a sponge bath. He has a walker and is going to be home bound for 6 weeks. That's 42 days; 1008 hours; 60,480 minutes. What will we do?

I'm dying, This is the funniest thing I've read in so long. My husband (aka George Burns, Archie Bunker, Larry King) is also getting a new hip in the new year. Good luck with the recovery.
