Prior to Marty’s surgery, friends who knew of Marty’s inability to communicate verbally in an intelligible manner frequently asked whether Marty understood that she was going to have her leg amputated. I worried that she did not fully comprehend but resigned myself that even if she did not she nonetheless needed to have the surgery.

Looking back, I am now convinced that Marty knew prior to the surgery that her leg needed to be amputated. I say this because when I look back to the morning of the surgery, Marty cried a little bit … a cry of an anticipated loss, a cry of resignation … but with what I now recognize as a strong resolve. In addition, at her first follow-up visit to her surgeon’s office this past week (Robert D. H. Lee, M.D. http://www.vascularhand.com/aboutus.html), Marty’s body language told me that she had known from the beginning what needed to be done.
