[IPu] Fw: [IPp] Toes and woes.

Hi All,
and the second ....
Beverley makes a very valid point below ..
That is "good control" isn't the only issue in complications.

We don't have all the answers ... by a "long shot", good control
certainly improves the odds, but genetics and plain old good luck also
is involved ....

Warm Regards,
PS. If someone BG'd my toes I KNOW I would be awake in 1 second !!!
