      Thanks, I needed to hear what you had to say too… especially the last part.  I'm trying really hard to stay positive.  I agree with you that the waiting is harder than the surgery.  My leg hurts a lot right now after surgery last week but it doesn't bother me nearly as much as this waiting does.  I just want to know what I'm up against so I can get my game plan and deal with this.  You all are making me feel much less alone and much less scared so thank you.
