that he is not in England, is not stranded, and

really matter so much as lettin someone

My father emigrated from the Soviet Union after
World War II. As a young man, he lost three
fingers to frostbite, but he didnt like to
talk about it. I live in a region that has harsh
winters and often wonder about frostbite. How do
you treat it? -- O.S.

the tissues where it happens. The crystals do
some of the damage, as does a loss of water from
affected cells. However, the greatest amount of
