I got a phone call this morning from my step-mum to say that Dad's condition had worsened so at 3 .00am I left with Jess to go and see him. Luckily I got to spend a bit of time with him while he was lucid and then after that he went downhill rapidly and ended up having to be ventilated. At some point when we all went to my sister's house for a rest Dad otok another turn for the worse andthere was nothing more that could be done. My step-mum and I chose to stay with him while the machines keeping him alive were slowly turned down and eventually he lost the fight just before 1.00pm.
