Thanks guys, its such a weird feeling that this is maybe for gone this time.
@paul, thanks for the article, it makes it seem more real when you read something like that. I go see my GI guy next week, I was his first pt on this so I'm excited to see him even if I'm really going to break up with him  ;).
@lynn, its almost done !!
