It’s been almost two months since Bergen’s open-heart surgery. I’m thrilled to report he is well on the road to recovery — thanks to family, friends, strangers, doctors, nurses, caregivers, and Netflix. Most nights we’ve cuddled up on the couch and watched films and documentaries.

The official name on his birth certificate reads Gordon Levy. I call him Dad. Other people call him Gord, Go-Go, Buckwheat Zydeco, Gordoon, Gordy, Zaidy, Zee-Zee, Gordo, Daddy-o, Mr. Got-to-go, Mr. L, Mr. G, Uncle Gordon, husband of Lea, son of Charles and Annie, brother of Glenda (may they all R.I.P.). Mr. Levy. V.I.P. My Dad says, “each name’s a winner — just don’t call me Late-For-Dinner.”
Last week, my husband had open heart surgery. Last night he was discharged from hospital. Today, he held my hand and we set out on the road to recovery. For better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness, and in health…over-flowing with gratitude for everything everyone did to help us welcome this New Year — 2014 — together. Hallelujah!
Wishing you all a loving & literary season!
