    We all need to vent - that is so great about this forum and being able to share with people who really understand. Sometimes the knees hurt more as we get closer to "the day" plus we are running around getting ready and having extra appointments that require more walking. Hang in there, it will pass and soon you will join us in recovery. Keep your chin up - this too will pass. Lee
