The foot feels the foot when it feels the ground.
In the continuing saga of my ankle surgery with no health insurance, I have been told that I *can* now put 25% of my body weight on my toe. The difference between can=permission and can=ability is painfully obvious here as I can only manage 30 pounds without pain. Unless it means that I only weigh 120 pounds. Highly unlikely, that, although I have surprisingly lost some 20 pounds during the last few months of forced inactivity.
I have just come across a photo of the first time I learned to walk at 9-some months. I looked much more cheerful that time.
