So, why the trip to Ottawa? The answer is simple: tonight my parents return to Ottawa after being away for a month. I went to visit them before their trip and it’s important for me to visit when they return.
Here is some background. My Dad is 81 and my Mom is 71.
They like to travel as they hate the Ottawa winter and who can blame them? But on several occasions I have received “THE CALL”.
i.e my dad had a heart attack on one vacation and needed a triple bypass asap. That vacation lasted three weeks.
i.e my dad had flesh eating disease on another vacation and was in hospital very very far away for more than two weeks.
i.e my dad had a stroke on another vacation.
So you see why I have been worrying!! I’m not even the worrying-type.
I really am grateful that they have the opportunity to travel and they believe in living life to the fullest. But on the other hand…I WORRY when they are away.
On that note…the highway is waiting for me. More stories about my trip to Ottawa next week. Promise!!
