On November 30th, 2016, I experienced a full knee replacement surgery.

I had seen the signs for a long while and, honestly? I expected it to happen sooner.
Sill, I went through the paces. Shock on the initial news, frustration, uncertainty for the future. All of that happening in the few hours following the notice. I was told at 10:30 in the morning. By 4 p.m., I’d polished off the resume and it was making the rounds.read on
