the remote kitchen tonight. SU’s test results came back negative, no malignancy. Good news. Like I said, there is a commandment somewhere about women not getting sick, I’m certain of it. 😉
After that, we came home and watched a movie. It was our third movie in about a week. I finally filled my queue at Netflix and Bam! Just like that we had movies again. First one we watched was a subtitled Russian movie titled Sacrifice. Sucked. ‘Nuff said.
The second one was another subtitled movie, Sugar Cane Alley. Excellent film. Tells the story of a grandmother struggling to make certain her grandson does not follow in the footsteps of the rest of the freed-men cutting sugar cane. What is nice is that it didn’t follow the normal formula of focusing on the abuse that the workers faced but rather on the integrity, grit and courage that it takes to rise above that. Highly recommended.
And that bring us to tonight. A beautiful story about Alzheimer’s disease, the love of a man for his wife, a man searching for redemption for perhaps not being the husband he should have been and the strength of a woman recognizing her situation and making a tough decision. Titled Away From Her, it is a tearjerker and love story of the first order.
We had to wait until we received the test results to watch it. Fortunately, the results were of the good kind. Not sure I could have handled this movie otherwise. But it really is a wonderful tale, well made and very realistic. Alzheimer’s is a terrible disease, we see a lot of people suffering from it. Heart wrenching. Again, highly recommended.
