A Grim Toe Becomes His Hand

The BBC reports today on the incredible surgery by which a man’s toe became his lost thumb – much less disabling, life without a big toe than a thumb, especially for a man in his line of work – a plant operator. Asked, “Does a toe make a good thumb?” Mr Byrne replied, “Yes, I think it does.” Full story and video here.

Apparently, and I did not know this but my wife did, this is a fairly common practice. Still, unbelievably cool and one step closer to remade.
