The following quote is taken from Written In My Own Heart's Blood by Diana Gabaldon, chapter 117 "INTO THE BRIAR PATCH". Copyright (c) 2014by Diana Gabaldon. All rights reserved.

   "A hand touched my waist, and, gulping air, I leaned blindly into Jamie.
   "What's wrong, a nighean?" he whispered to me.
   "Laudanum," I said, almost at random. "You don't--you don't lose con-
sciousness altogether. It makes the pain go away--not stop, just seem not
connected to you--but it's there. And you . . . you know what's happening to
you." I swallowed, forcing down bile.
   I felt it. The hard probe jabbing its way into my side, startling. The re-
markable sense of cold intrusion, mingled with incongruous faint warm
echoes of internal movement, the forceful jabs of a child in the womb.
   "You know what's happening," I repeated, opening my eyes. I found his,
looking down at me with gentleness.
   "I ken that, aye?" he whispered, and cupped my cheek with his four-
fingered hand. "Come and tell me what ye need me to do, mo ghraidh." "

[> Does that mean he was maore alert than we and Claire thought when she amputated his finger? Though I think she gave him more than she allowed Denzel to give her. After that i can't blame her for having the heebie-jeebies about what she needs to do to this poor fellow. -- kgp, 05:57:27 04/22/15 Wed

[> [> That's what I thought too, that he was very aware when Claire amputated his finger. Interesting that DG says his"four fingered hand". -- LisaW, 07:00:23 04/22/15 Wed

[> I'd forgotten about this passage. I re-read of MOBY is in order. -- Rita, 14:02:06 04/22/15 Wed
