Choosing Amputation

Please read this well-written and very informative AP story (now there's something you don't see every day) on TPM about Heather Abbott, a woman who lost her left foot as a result of irreparable damage from one of the explosions in Boston. She seems very courageous to me. Though I had no traumatic incident... an infection led to the amputation of my already deformed foot... much of what she describes seems familiar to me; our decision processes were similar. With Mrs. Abbott's clear thinking and positive outlook, I expect to read another story about her return to reasonable health in, say, four months or so. And when I do, I shall stand up and applaud. Courage, Mrs. Abbott; courage and strength!
