Anyway, so it's been fun because I get to watch all 9 Kildare films and all 6 Gillespie films for quantitative analysis first (article 1), then take that and work up an article on the impact those films had on public perception of wheelchairs/users. I'm very glad I can watch them on a computer so I can grab images to help explain what I'm trying to do. Here's a couple:
|Lew Ayres & Lionel Barrymore, Dr. Kildare's Wedding Day (LB did play piano and composed--one of his pieces is played at the end of this film)|
|First entrance of Dr. Leonard B. Gillespie in the series, in Young Dr. Kildare, 1938|
And besides all that, Lionel Barrymore was a great actor! It's been fun to watch the Kildare films and explore his other work. It makes my tired brain, which is finally coming out of a relapse, feel better.
To that purpose, the Tecfidera I started seems to be working out. I haven't had any side effects I notice, and my tummy is pretty much made of iron. I don't anticipate tummy upset. I'm not too worried about PML, especially since that month of relapse was horrible. We're still waiting on the ocrelizumab to be approved, which would be fantastic. It was a godsend when I was in the Phase II trial for it 8 or so years ago now (2009). Even better if it helps PPMS too.
Off to work and do more coding and watch more Barrymore. Cute cuss in his time, too:
|1929, The Mysterious Island|
|Newest tattoo, LB as Davidson in Sadie Thompson, 1928. I'll be getting his brother John as Hamlet on my other calf at the end of the month. Yes, I have a few tattoos, all of which I can if I choose cover up :)|
