Next week it will be twelve months since that wasp stung my wife's toe. The damage it caused is still with us. A year ago she was an active ballroom dancer; now she is barely able to walk. Next week she is going to have an exploratory operation to see if there is anything that can be done to remove the inflammation from behind her kneecap. We've come a long way from the septicaemia and "You might lose your foot' to 'keyhole surgery on your knee' - I reckon that wasp is still around... I bet he's smiling.
