    Once again thank you all for your thoughts, prayers and kind words.

    Dad is slowly being woken up, he recognises mam's voice and can blink to answer questions. His dialysis is working as intended but may take a few days to get rid of all the swelling / rubbish in his system.

    Another small step forward

    Thanks for the update Chunk.
    I know from personal experience what a shock to the system it is having your breastbone sliced down the middle for open heart surgery.
    Just be patient and have faith in those looking after him.

    Morning update from the hospital, dad had another stable night, they are discussing reducing his dialysis to intermittent.

    He's finally moved all his limbs and sedation nearly all taken away.

    Another small step forward

    Sorry to hear about that mate. My Dad had a heart attack 2 weeks ago but unfortunately passed away at 6am this morning in Sunderland hospital so I know what you’re going through. This was his 4th heart attack within 16 years due to being a heavy smoker.

    The staff at Sunderland hospital are a credit to their profession and I can’t thank them enough for their work they did to try and give my old man the best chance at fighting it. Keep your chin up pal, he’s in good hands and he sounds like a fighter going off your latest posts.

    So sorry to here that about your dad and i genuinely appreciate you taking the time when you should rightly be thinking about yourself and your family to post supporting my dad

    I've just seen dad and he's responding to questions and responding with small head movements.

    I've told him when he wakes up properly and is well enough that he had to post on this thread, I couldn't make out what he was trying to mouth but I suspect the last word was off.

    That’s good news that he’s responding mate. Keep the faith and be patient, I’m sure everything will work out fine. All the best!

    These people are brilliant, and sometimes they don't get the credit that they deserve. I'm still here only because of them. Sorry to hear of your Dad,

    Update from the hospital, they have taken his breathing tube out and his first slurred words were "where is my coffee"

    A giant step forward

    Been following this - glad things seem brighter for Father OP.
    These events are scary but not always a terrible outcome these days
    When my dad was 75 he collapsed at home and was rushed to the hospital... he needed 12 units of blood and an emergency aortic aneurysm repair --- He's now 94
