"Oh, I saw him last week. He said we'll watch it, but he's worried he's going to have to do an amputation."
"I'm sorry to hear that-- I'm sure that's not easy news to get."
"Yeah, I thought it would get better, especially after he did the bereavement."
"He did a bereavement on the wound, so I thought that would help."
"I'm sorry, explain to me what he did to the wound?"
"He cut off some of the dead skin. He said he was doing a bereavement for the skin."
"Oh, okay. You mean a debridement. He removed the dead tissue."
"Yes, a bereavement."
"It's called a debridement."
"Anyway, I'm sorry. When's your next appointment with him?"
"Two weeks, unless I get a fever over 105."
"Could he maybe have said one hundred point five, not a hundred and five?"
"Oh, maybe. I don't remember."
"Okay, well, if you get a fever over 100.5, give his office a call just to check."
"Okay, I'll do that."
