On Tuesday morning my parents were on their way back from my sister's house in Toronto when my dad started having chest pain. After a couple transfers between various hospitals, the day ended at one AM in a waiting room at the Peter Munk Cardiac centre at Toronto General Hospital.
Today, my dad's making a good recovery from a double heart by-pass, but like I said, it's been a really long week (especially for my dad).
Dad, I know you can't read this right now but you're my most loyal and long standing reader, and it's not the same around here without you. Get well soon and I promise I'll keep tabs of things while you're gone.
P.s today the mayor of our small town stopped me on the Main Street to hear about how you were doing. If you ever had a doubt, you should know that you've laid down some pretty deep roots 'round these parts.
All my love, from the bottom of my heart, Emily xoxo
