Its been a tough 10 days or so, but my Father has passed away in hospital.

He was 87 going on 88...............he was very active for his age....he returned home having walked the do for an hour or so. Was taken ill that eveing with some sort of chest infection......by the next morning he was clearly ill & the para-medics were called. They didn't seem too concerned & he been into hospital before in the last 18 months with much the same trouble.

Sadly this time he did not respond to treatment, his lungs collasped & he died a few days later............a void in my life has begun.
