    Don't blame yourself pal. I would be very proud of my son if he acted how you did. I'm sure your dad will be too.

    Keep your head held high mate.

    Sorry for your loss.

    Terrible watching your dad die. I know how you feel. It stays with you. Best wishes to you and yours.

    "Staying strong" means fuck all in reality. It'll get to you eventually. When it does, just let it out.

    You've done what may could not, you saved your father's life - then handed him to the NHS who tried their best. Don't run yourself down for what is not your fault, or anyone elses, it was just time. Remember all the good times with dad - I'm sure there were many and don't dwell on what you couldn't control. Top work m8, and be proud.

  11. You totally did the right thing mate, we all hope we would have done the same
    At least you had that chance with him, my dad died last year from a heart attack, he had managed to call 999, a friend got to him first and didn't know what to do so rang me and I set straight off to his house, I live 10 miles from the house, ambulance was already there when I got there but it was too late for him.

    Jeez, that is tragic!.. Sorry for your loss...... as others have said, you did the right thing, so don't feel down about that... you did all that you could do... sadly, in this case it was just not enough as by the sounds of it there was no way of bringing him back.
    I'm sure he would have wanted the best for you all... try not to remember the immediate past... but remember the rest of his life and the better times you had together....

    Very sad to read this, but I hope it's helped getting it out on here. If you need to vent, keep venting.
    The SMB is a great emotional sponge.

    My condolences to your family.

    You did the right thing at every turn. Your family got the chance to say goodbye, and even if your Dad was not responding to the things that were said, I strongly believe he would have been feeling and sharing your farewells. That was the gift you gave him in his final hours.
    Sorry for the loss of a man that was obviously much loved. RIP.
