I imagine that, had Lady Bracknell been with me when the surgeon concluded that amputation above the knee was very definitely my best option, she might have opined that “to lose one part of one’s leg may be regarded as a misfortune…to lose both seems like carelessness.” So far, the only positive thing I can think of in this latest twist in my amputation adventure is that I’ll get a second season’s wear out of my Primark linen cut-offs. That, and a good excuse to buy season two of Glee.
