My partner (who has MS that acts like traumatic brain injury) recently had toenail surgery for the third time. Late on Friday she was in a bit of a panic, saying that her foot felt weird. Was it the iodine? Did we have to switch to saline solution again? Should we call the podiatrist's after-hours pager? What to do, what to do? I started going down our usual checklist: did partner need food? Water? Sleep? Did we need the A/C on, off, cool, heat? And so on.\r\n\r\nA few minutes later partner was all smiles, because she had figured out that she just needed to wash her feet. That almost seemed too easy.\r\n\r\nThen she told me she had figured it out because the foot that had felt weird was the one that <i>hadn't had the surgery</i>.\r\n\r\n(Decades ago a friend of mine had a dog who had cut his paw pad on a shard of glass. My friend had given her dog the best tender-loving care she could give him while he healed and all the attention she could spare. She told me she had figured out he was healed when he had forgotten and started limping on the wrong foot.)
