There is no place like home!
Gar and I spent Christmas Day in a rather different fashion, but we were glad to be able to have done it that way. We picked my Dad up at a Vancouver Hospital, and drove him to the Airport, and waited with him, until he made his flight. Up in the Okanagan, my sister, and BIL picked him up, and took him home. He suffered a heart attack earlier in the week, and was flown down in a Air Ambulance. Unfortunately they did not offer a return trip, and there were many worries about how to get him back, with the road conditions as poor as they were. I cannot thank the staff at West Jet enough, for their compassionate and caring attitudes. Every step of the way, they offered assistance, and reassurance. They allowed me to stay with my Dad all the way through security, and to the boarding gate where they took over and helped him onto the plane. Thank you West Jet, for all your help!
