Well my friend, this daunting task(s) is just like eating an elephant. One bite at a time is how you eat an elephant, so one hour or minute at a time to do this task. It is a marathon not a sprint so pace yourself accordingly. I was thinking of you last night, I was messing around with our dog and she came full speed and slid sideways to sit on my feet and when she hit me I thought of you and your knee. Must have been two great minds thinking alike there! Hope the knee is feeling better daily. Nothing wrong with taking the prescribed pain killers to help with the pain, just don't deaden the pain and overdo it. You have a lot invested in that knee, time, money, emotion, etc.. Take care of it and take care of you. Go home in the afternoon and take an hour nap, it will benefit you and the knee. I have faith in you, your abilities, your mentality as well as your maturity telling you what is right and what is wrong. Go eat the elephant and call whenever.
God and family, the rest is icing on the cake.
I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place.
