When Elizabeth O'Brien developed a blister three years ago while attending a nephew's wedding, she had little reason to suspect that it might cost her a foot. The 57-year-old marine biologist and onetime deep-sea diver from North Hollywood had always managed to nurse her wounds successfully before, even though being a diabetic made the recovery a much more protracted and painful affair. This time, though, the blister festered and infection set in, swelling her foot to twice its normal size.
