This was a totally wonderful answer and very clear for me to understand. Giving an example (Jelly Doughnut) is a wonderful way to help a lay person understand the answer. And the description of the terms, along with the term it describes, is a very good way to explain. Now I have a much better understanding of what the terms mean, and when I go to see the Orthopedic Dr. next week I will better understand whats going on. Thanks so much for your help!
