Yesterday was a special day. We all know this.
Yesterday was not only Remembrance Day, but it was 1 year ago yesterday that rocked my world. My Dad had his heart attack a year ago yesterday. I sat in the hospital and waited for news and waited for surgery. In a matter of seconds, my Dad was fine and then he wasn't. I had the strength I did not know I had. I was terrified that the man that I knew as Dad would be gone forever. I work in cardiology and I know the risks and the outcomes. I know the importance of time when dealing with the heart.
My Dad is fine now, they gave him a stent and he is doing great.
Just remember how quick things can change, how a matter of minutes and seconds play roles in our lives.
Just remember how lucky we are!
