Subject: McGrath of Harlow: message from his son
From: McGrath of Harlow
Date: 08 Jan 11 - 07:45 AM

My Dad's asked me to post this as he is presently unable to get to a computer.

On December 19 he suffered a cardiac arrest after quite a long walk through the snow. Initially, two first aiders gave him CPR before the arrival of the paramedics. He was admitted to hospital and resuscitated for forty minutes.

Eventually he was transferred to intensive care, where he remained for three days. For much of this period he was sedated and on life support.

Since then he seems to be making a good recovery. My mother and I visit him every day and he's fairly jolly given what has happened to him. He has written two letters to the The Guardian newspaper and has made friends with his fellow patients.

It's been a pretty grim Christmas but he wanted to let everyone on here know what's been going on and has vowed to get back to posting as soon as possible.

Ciaran

Best wishes to your Dad, Ciaran: that is some tribute to the medical services, and hope he continues to make good progress.
I am sure many of us have enjoyed his postings on here, even if we didn't always agree with him! I must have met him at Sidmouth too.

Thank you very much for letting us know, Ciaran. Please tell your dad there are many Mudcat friends who will be watching for updates. If he would enjoy hearing from us in the form of cards, you could either send that information to one of his close friends here by using the PM link that will show next to their names (and those who want to send a card could contact that designated person), or if it is appropriate you could post an address here when he's ready for that.

I look forward to hearing of your progress and improved health, McGrath. I enjoy your posts.

Maeve, in Maine

Thanks for posting Ciaran. Kevin McGrath is one of the reasons why I got interested in Mudcat in the first place. I have always enjoyed his humane, dignified responses to threads here - and on occasion been cracked up by his subtlety and wit. Get well soon Kevin. We look forward to having you back.

Ciaran, I've only met your dad through Mudcat but -- as others have said -- it's good to have someone like him on such a forum to offer a balancing view when matters get heated.
Mental attitude is all, and your dad sounds just the person to come through this!
