Ugh, I'm so sorry Allie. I wish there was something I could do to help but I have known lots of people who have had this surgery. My Mom had torn the cartilage in her knee playing softball in '71, I think, and had surgery on it then. And back then, it was a very invasive procedure, none of the laproscopic?? Stuff they have nowadays. Never offered her any problems until recently. Now she is starting to get arthritis but hey, she is 56 years old . I hope they get it fixed up soon and even though surgery sounds scary, it is a relatively simple procedure so best wishes and I hope all goes well.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Haha I am so fed up with this whole thing now, I would hop on the OR table today if it meant it was fixed.
And for me to say that is big, I hate needles and the such.

XXXX Well, all body parts are crossed in hopes that it goes well and the recovery is quick and as painless as possible.

me, no no no, you can't cross all of your toes, fingers or ears.

And you can only look crossed eyed.
