Lily's Dad part 4

Lily is staying at her parents' house. She says it's strange to spend so much time there after being away for so long, but it's also nice to be somewhere familiar. I can understand both parts of that. When you move to the other side of the world, it's nice to hold onto even the smallest things that remind you of home. Actually being there changes everything. She's eating the foods she grew up with, walking down the streets she walked as a child and going to sleep in the house where she spent most of her life.

Then there's her father. He's doing a lot better, but he's still weak and needs to learn how to eat again. He grew up a rugged Canadian eating too much red meat and salt on everything. Now, he has to eat healthy food. Healthy by Canadian standards means only two cups of syrup on your French fries. He needs to get healthy by medical standards. That's probably harder to do after a lifetime of caribou & poutine.

No hate, please. There's enough of that in the world already.
