    Well I just had my knee surgery today and they actually found something after I've been fighting with the physical therapy Doctor and the Military physicians for a while now.
    I also went thru physical therapy back in High school and they couldn't seem to make it any better but they found that I had some extra tissue that was catching on my knee cap and causing the pain.

    So now I'm doing good and I got 2 weeks off from work so hopefully I'll be able to walk normal sometime in the next few weeks so I can finish my Argies new Terrarium.

    Get well soon!

    I'm glad to hear your surgery went well... and that they've finally found the cause of what sounds like a long problem!
    Knees are tricky... give yourself time to heal before "running any marathons" :D

    All the best!

    Well I've just been laying around keeping it up in the air trying to keep the swelling down and so far it's going really well. I'm not taking any of the pain meds anymore because it just doesn't hurt. I will hopefully be back on my feet soon so I can get back to playing with my Argentine Boas.

    Well I'm kind of able to walk a little without the crutches so I can get up and move around a lot more and hopefully I'll be able to help with my move into a house at the end of the month.

    I wish I could but I can't stand sitting still and not being able work on something. I hate that I can't work on a few projects right now till I get into my new house.
