Bad though not unexpected (mostly) news from ALHS's doctor visit today.

The unexpected part is that the surgeon we've gone through so much with is leaving and moving 1800 miles away.

This isn't looking good, and the thing is, we know this is probably going to be our life (fix the problem, have it recur/progress, as it's a degenerative problem, repeat) from here on out.  I'm just really down this evening, but I want to stay up for him and our girls.

Ah, well.  So it goes.

I apologize for the delay in responding.  I'm sorry you're going through this.  Chronic illness is so hard and draining to deal with.  I hope you find another surgeon you and ALHS like.  Maybe the one that is moving can recommend a trusted colleague in the area.

I'm horribly nervous, as usual, but I'm looking forward to things settling down to whatever the new normal will be. I'm just tired of the frequent doctor visits, etc.

This doesn't answer your question, but "cf." actually means "Compare," rather than "See also."  So they may be using it wrong (or not).  I have no idea about APA style.

I was so happy when I thought that I'll be able to cycle to my new internship place in Paris! However, getting a flat 3min from the lab quite killed this expectations. Maybe still be able to cycle to the very center and do some sightseeing!

I teach International Marketing, and several students decided for their group project to bring an IHOP franchise to Brazil. However, they don't have maple syrup in Brazil. It turned out to be very expensive to import it and further, the students didn't like it much anyway.

An American student was shocked. "Y'all don't have maple syrup in Brazil? What do you put on your pancakes?? Jelly??? What is that all about???!!!"

Anyway, that his final reflection. "There are places in the world that don't have maple syrup for their pancakes! And there are people who don't even like it!! I still can't believe it!!!"



Does IHOP even serve real maple syrup? I haven't been there often, but I have the impression it serves "pancake syrup" which contains nothing more exotic than corn syrup and artificial flavoring.
