A Visit from Pamela and Her Two Boys

This is Pamela, a long-time family friend of my sister's and so also one of my friends for the last several years. In the time I've known her, she married Robby, who was stuck at home tonight working, and has had two boys, Thomas and Lucas. They are all wonderful people and I'm proud to know them!

Davide, Mark, Monica and Michela

Here I am with Monica, Mark, Michela and Davide and Carlotta the Dog in their workplace here in Reggio Emilia, Italy. They are all supernice people and Davide and Mark are good friends of the family.

Monica (the blonde) and Michela (the brunette) are twin sisters - yes, really! I think this is the first time I have been kissed by twin ladies!

A Visit from Mark and Giorgia

Our good friends Mark and Giorgia (pronounced Georgia) came to visit Sunday evening to my sister's house here in Italy. This is Giorgia, Mark, and my sister in the first photo.

In the second photo, I'm the lucky recipient of a kiss (on the cheek, alas) from Giorgia!

Vera's 50th Birthday Party

This is Vera, a good friend of my sister Sally. She is an excellent pediatrician who lives and works in London. She visits her home town here in Italy often and was here to let us all celebrate her 50th birthday party. She had a huge turnout and a local band. We all got blue T-shirts with VERA 50 on the back so we all looked like members of her team. She wore a yellow t-shirt as our coach.

A fun time was had by all!

Mom is the Same Today

Today mom is the same, not talking, looking at us when we talk but not able to respond or move much. I have extended my stay by eight days until August 2nd and hope to see some results in the meanwhile.

Tomorrow we should know the results of the MRI. Here's hoping...

You all keep me sane with your emails and comments here. Thank you so much.
