Still probably not a job for loops...
"the reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated"

If you delay by loops (the report of) the dead controller (while in a loop, the controller is, for all practical purposes, dead) can cause all kinds of havoc. Much better to do the delay in a timer ISR and set a flag a 'live' micro can check.
