During the weeks of February 7 through February 17, I observed a total hip arthroplasty on a 56-year-old Caucasian female patient who suffered from a femoral neck fracture and damage to the acetabulum. The fracture was a result from a car accident where the patient's knees collided with the dashboard, forcing the femur into the hip and breaking the femur.
I retreated to the waiting room where my parents sat hopefully, hope which does not exist. I couldn’t bear to tell them, my parents whom have cared for me and love me, I can’t bear to see them worried. “I consulted with the doctor, I have decided to have part of my leg amputated.” I said this as calmly and confidently as I could, as if I had chosen to do this, hoping they would think it was my choice and diminish their distress with such a procedure. My father and mother stood up, smiling at me, a smile I will never forget.
CP is a retired, 89-year-old male of upper-middle socioeconomic status. CP earned a degree in law to become an attorney. Prior to retirement he had 35 years of experience and his own practice. He had a right posterior hip replacement following a fall that fractured the right femoral neck. The fall occurred when he was walking from his home to the end of the driveway to throw away linens. Part of the linens slipped out from underneath the pile he was carrying, he stepped on it, fell and rolled down the driveway. He was taken to the hospital where he was to have a right hip replacement. The surgery went well, but he had to receive a blood transfusion. He has been transferred from the hospital and is currently at an inpatient rehabilitation center.
It was two weeks before the state championship game and Ella and her team had been working really hard to win. Every year Ella's team had made it to state and every year they had lost in the first round. Ella wanted to change that this year and so far it looked like Ella and her team were on the right track. They got up at 5 AM every morning to go to practice at 5:30 and then turned around to go to practice at 3 everyday after school. Their coach drilled them so hard that they could've done every play, drill, and made every shot in their sleep.

9 years before... The little girl sat in the hospital bed crying as her doctor left, leaving the door open. She couldn't believe the news, her dreams; ruined. She wouldn't graduate college, she wouldn't get married and have kids, she wouldn't even get to see her little brother do the same

As for my family’s perspective, this is going to be mainly based on my mom’s friend’s perspective. His expectation of entering Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom was not to wait in extensively long lines, to be selected randomly to go through metal detectors, be detained for ten minutes, and then must explain his medical history because his hip replacement created the metal detector to be activated. His first encounter with Walt Disney World cast members created the term “moment of truth” and this first approach between him and the cast member security gave a negative effect on my mom’s friend. He was expecting a magical service experience, everything he has seen on television; however, he felt he did not receive this type of expectation,
