  1. Sorry to anyone that I have been helping recently, but i may well be absent for a while as my dad is critically ill in hospital!!

    He is barely alive and has a 50/50 chance of surviving.

    I wont go into details, but suffice to say that I will probably be spending a fair ammount of time in hospital hoping that he will make it.

    From experience:

    In case it IS his time, be sure that you not only let him know how much you love him, but also how much you feel his love in your life (assuming that is true for you of course).

    My thoughts go out to you in support. Let the chips fall where they may, and let love shine through regardless.

    Thank you everyone for your kind words, it means soooo much to me!!

    I am deeply touched and reading all this had bought a tear to my eye!!

    My thoughts go out to N1Hawk in particular. You have my condolences for your loss.

    I have some incredible news, don't ask me how, but my dad has survived it all.
    He has undergone almost 6 hours of surgery, had over 40 units of blood , and almost died 3 times.
    The hospital staff are absolutely incredible and have almost performed a miracle. I have nothing but the deepest respect and admiration for those hardworking and dedicated people!!!

    My dads chances were as low as %10 and because of what those amazing people have done for him his chances are now up to %90.

    I spoke to him last night and he was well enough to complain about being thirsty!!:):)

    He is still very ill but now stands an excellent chance of making a full recovery.

    There are no words that are adequate enough to express how incredibly lucky i fell to have such an amazing ammount of support from everyone here on TechSpot and from my few close friends.
    I really don't think i could have coped without them!!!!

    So a massive THANKYOU to everyone!!!

    Thankyou to everyone that has posted here.

    It has been very difficult for me to deal with and all your kind words have helped a great deal.

    Altho he has improved immensely he is still very ill, his lungs are still in bad shape and it is going to take a long time for him to recover enough to come home.

    I miss spending time on TechSpot!!!!
