The toe was completely numb,and it was as if he was working on something detached from me.A totally surreal experience .I never felt a thing.The surgeon turned and saw me looking,and asked if I was ok. I said yes,and he laughed and said it was a first for him to see someone watch what he was doing to them.I had to stop myself from asking for the toe to put in a bottle of liquor. lol It only took 25 minuted to do it. I wonder if any out there ever went through a similar experience?
I'm glad you doing well, Ed.

Thanks Eileen; It's still pretty sensitive and tender.I have to have it dressed every two days for a couple of weeks.
