Last week went by with such a blur. After visiting the airport viewing area and taking the Canada Line for the first time, the old man got sick – really, really fast. Temperature shot up to 40C and wouldn’t go down that much.
We took him to the doctor and he prescribed Tamiflu: the stuff they give to those with H1N1.
To put it lightly, I was concerned. Ater hearing about that poor boy in Ontario who died, I immediately thought about my own son.
My work was very understanding and allowed me to be at home to take care of him while the rest of the family spent most of the week at my Sister in law’s place.
Shook me up a bit. But we spent a lot of time together and I got a chance to learn more about him. He’s really funny – great sense of humour. And it’s nice to know that he likes me as a father. And the time together helped me realize how busy my life really is. Perhaps too busy.
When I return to school in January it will be an even bigger challenge to juggle everything. I need to be careful and always stay on top of things. Each week, each day needs to be as perfect as it can be. And I need to start re-developing those habits starting now
Don’t worry. The old man is much better now. He’s going back to school today after a week long rest.
