As posted last Saturday, Sr. Advisor R had a nonhealing leg sore. When I mentioned R's sore in answer to "How's R?" the 90-year-old questioner quickly pulled up one leg of her slacks about 5" to show me her ankles and the bruises above them. Said they'd been there for ages, she had a sore that took three months to heal, and she only wears slacks now.
