First stop this morning was the Neurology Department at St Michael's Hospital in Toronto.
There we met Dr Das; Mary's surgeon for the growth on her spine. We are so fortunate to have Dr Das. He is kind, thoughtful, compassionate, thorough, and puts you at ease when he first walks in the room. If you need a neurosurgeon you won't find anyone better.
He explained very clearly what he saw in the slide on the screen and what he wants to do before any surgery takes place. We asked a lot of questions and now we will patiently wait for the hospital to call and book the biopsy.
Checking out the stores as we headed home.
Also saw one of Toronto's newest streetcars on King Street; not in service yet, just being checked out.
Now we are home and waiting for the phone to ring.
We are two retired Canadians who have just moved into our off grid passive solar home. This is all new to us and we are surprised at how comfortable the house is regardless of the temperature outside. When not home we are usually travelling in our Airstream trailer exploring North America and meeting like minded people.
Mary loves to quilt and Art enjoys photography. We both enjoy camping, hiking, canoeing, travelling and cross-country skiing.
Come along with us and share our adventures as we settle into this new life off the electrical grid.
