Waiting and waiting

Hi everyone:

We are still awaiting substantive information from doctors; until then, we just wait and wait. The high points of this day included aborting a walk within a minute because of the bitter wind (and because of Patty's subsequent inability to breathe comfortably), and my preparation of an enormous pot of jambalaya. Patty took a very long nap in the early evening while I watched the Toronto Maple Leafs game. As I write this, we're about to start into a yet-to-be-determined movie.

Incidentally, if you've never seen the foreign ghost story The Devil's Backbone, by Guillermo Del Toro, the director of Pan's Labyrinth, give it a try. It doesn't hammer you over the head with cheap scares like most horror flicks, but instead slowly introduces an overarching sense of dread. More movies should respect the intelligence of the audience, as this film does. Can you tell I'm a fan of this director's work? Can you also tell that I'm scrambling to post something of substance in this space?

Stay tuned...the excitement drought never seems to endure for long. Let's just hope the next real news is something optimistic in nature. A reduction in antibodies? A perfect match on a heart?


P.S. Last night, we surpassed 8,000 visits to the blog since late July, 2006; thanks for keeping in the loop.
