It was an issue of blood -- but not blood only. You see, the diabetes that wracked my friend Dick's body had also damaged his liver and destroyed his kidneys. But it was the issue of blood -- the lack of circulation -- that made Dick's trial most evident to rest of us. This was especially true in the past year when he underwent surgery to amputate his leg.
