K8 -- what a sense of humor you have with your subject line!
I know you didn't post this for sympathy, but I DO truly feel for you and what you are going to have to go through in the coming months . . . the surgery, therapy, learning to live without one of your limbs, the mental anguish, etc. etc. etc. My thoughts are with you and hopefully you will continue to let us know how you are getting on. You've been on this forum for much longer than me and I am sure you know and feel the love and support here!
