Having thoroughly enjoyed the first volume of Gil Rosselini's video
journal, which he whimsically titled "Kill Gil, Volume One," I was
delighted to see Volume Two show up on cable TV last week. With the
same light-hearted, pragmatic resolve with which he faced a horrendous
infection from Staphylococcus aureus in Volume One, Gil is forced back
to into hospitals in Switzerland to undergo more surgeries, more rehab,
and more endless hours of pain, paralysis, and tedium. In spite of
being seriously ill, Gil presents us with music, laughter, wry
observations on his condition, and a deep appreciation for the many
people who try to help him cope with his incredible maladies. By the
end of Volume Two, Gil seems to be on the mend.
It is with some shock that I read here on IMDb that Gil finally succumbed to his long battle with Staph on October 3. Just as Gil was careful to emphasize his gratitude for all who helped him or visited him, it seems fitting to say thanks in return to Gil Rosselini for sharing his wisdom, his dignity, and his abundant humor.
