November 29th is the Glorious date.  We were going to spend the night in Chicago but one of the biggest conventions of the year will be there for that week and there are no rooms in downtown Chicago.(North American radiological Convention)  Wish we could just fly down and back but I know we can't .  Anyway something will work out.

I would like to wish your son the best of luck on his surgery!!

I have been OK'ed for the procedure, but now my Ford plant is closing up and in the process of looking for a job which I may have found. So I will probably have to suck it up for a year and maybe have the procedure OK'ed again and deal with my new employer.
Things were much simpler when you did not have to worry about the knee everyday and just enjoy life.

I can't speak about the pain you all go through, I only know what my son tells me and I see.  I think anyone who needs this should be able to have the surgery.  Sorry you have to wait longer mpiorkow.  I know it can't be easy.
