    November 30. Susan, Christine and I saw two of three new Italian plays at the Cherry Lane theatre. I actually thought I had booked the third offer which was a Pirandello revival but we were all glad that we did not miss “The Journey I Never made” and “Story of Love and Soccer”. Both excellently translated and powerfully acted. The first is a thought provoking and somewhat unsettling portrayal of the current social turmoil and the second is modern thriller about corrupt sport and the triumph of evil over good. We were able to chat with one of the actors about the plays after the show. Before the show we ate lobster and oysters at the  “Fish” restaurant which was only two blocks from the theatre!

Pace Maker and Coming Home

Yesterday was a long day. At 9:30 am they gave Ben their final decision which was to proceed with the Pace Maker.  He was told not to eat or drink until after the procedure. Unfortunately, it was a big day for Pace Makers and he did not go in for the procedure until 8:30 pm. Poor Ben had gone over 24 hours without food or drink! Made Craig, Kiowa and me feel guilty when we ate  in front of him (a small joke).

He was back in his room at 11pm and amazingly alert and very hungry.  We are expecting to come home today.
