Re: Amputation scene
Thank you all for your thoughts - some of the ambiguous bits are clearer with context, because obviously there are a lot of characters in transit here. I thought about cauterisation, but wouldn't the torch do more damage in this instance?
I suppose the reason they decide to take the arm then is because they don't think they're in any danger; as far as they know, they won the battle, then Carmela comes and tells them they're still in danger.
Also, RcGrant, glad you liked the steak thing! I did umm and ahh about it, and whether a medic would actually say it (having neither de-boned a steak nor amputated an arm in my life...)
