Attitude is EVERYTHING!

Surely you are growing weary of my incessant focus on my knee. I'll say it for you: 
"Get over it" 
I will or should I say I am! I am making great progress and I credit that progress to a positive attitude way before I even hit that O.R. table Oct. 10th. I had this perceived vision that I would work through this latest crisis in a solid steady better-than-normal pace and well, I am.
My sole purpose for documenting this will come in a year or even 9 months from now when I can participate in whatever sport at the time I decide to fully engaged in and if I utter a complaint with no merit or I am pouting concerning a given result of my effort, I will snap my ass back into the land of *BE GRATEFUL* by reading/viewing one of these posts or two as a simple reminder of: remember when...

Here's a mini pictorial view of my progress.
