Its over a year since my dad died but I feel as if it was yesterday. All my emotions have been on stop until the inquest was over. If you get ill in Northumberland don't go to the Wansbeck hospital.
I know everyone says that their dad is the best, well mine was and I miss him.

love

Pat a hideous injustice was done to your father.

I must also let you know that for the first time in my life I am ashamed of the county I come from.
Take care & remember that nobody fully dies while someone who genuinely loved them lives.

Losing a father is hard enough without it having been caused by medical care improperly given.

A huge cosmic hug to you and I hope the hospital truly cleans up its act. Besides a father, you've also had your ability to trust medical providers taken from you.

It won't bring your father back, but remember that those whom you have once held in your heart are never gone.

My deepest condolences.

Good Lord Pat, that isn't just tragic, that's criminal.   All my best thoughts are yours and your family. Truly senseless, but that doesn't make the pain any less............

My Dad has been gone 35 years now and my Mom 40 years in November. Not a day goes by that I don't think of them both. Iam now older than either of them lived to be and it always seems odd.....so many times I still want their advice.

Many hugs...Much Love

Sympathy.

If you get sick, don't do it in North Kent.

The locals call Darenth Valley "Death Valley".

Medway Maritime ("Murdertime") killed my wife. They put her on a ventilator, sedated her and restrained her hands, and then failed to ensure the ventilation tube did not get blocked. That was just how they finished the job.

Death is always hard, and the timing of grief can be just as hard, even in the best of times, much less when the world keeps getting in your way.

Just know that you are still loved and cared for, and work at your own pace, not the world's.

Unfortunatly, the older we get the more loved ones we lose. I just made a list of close friends, (not relatives or mere aquaintences) that have passed on in the last 5 years. Eleven.
One of them was in the hospital for a series of treatments, and he died of a heart attack one night. (Not related to the treatments).

You have my sympathy, but no words are enough.

My dad has had to start kidney dialysis - (pd) last sept and I was amazed at the incompetence at the hospital and lack of communication.
he came out of it and is doing better now, and the best thing was getting out of the hospital.
So each day is just a gift to have him around, and now he can enjoy his two granddaughters. (2yrs and 2mths)

So sorry Pat - the death of a loved one is bad enough, but this goes beyond belief, particularly as the hospital seems not to want to apologise.

I hope that you can get closure soon and just have good memories of your Dad.

Thanks for letting us share this, and the warning that we cannot always trust those who are supposed to know what is in our best interests. There is a need for hypervigilance in any hospital stay. I know that if any of mine are in I will be questioning what is going on. I'd rather be thought a pain in the arse than let something slide by. It's just a shame that people have to die to teach us this lesson.

Thank you all so so much for your kindness and your hugs. I have millions of wonderful memories of my Dad. I try not to think of him just prior to his death - as this was not him, I remember the man who taught me how to make funny faces, and the man who introduced me to the music I will love forever. He always told me that " life is for the living" and I believe that. But its so good to have friends that give you support when life gets a bit difficult.

My advice to anyone who has a loved one in a hospital is to be their eyes and ears and speak up for them. Hind sight is a wonderful thing

I believe in an afterlife, so I know I will be reunited with my dad, I just want it sooner rather that later.

Pat xxxx

To all of you who have responded to this thread I have to tell you that the pain never goes away.My dad died in 1972 and hardly a day goes by without me wishing I could see him again and seek his advise on matters that trouble me. I only have to hear that song "In the Living Years" and its Kleenex time.

As for cleanliness in our Hospitals, a friend of mine who sadly died last week was told that a place was ready for him in the Royal Bolton Hospital. His MacMillan nurse was horrified at the prospect of his being placed in what is in everyones mind a germ ridden place(MRSA is Us) and she got him into the Bolton Hospice for the last 8 weeks of his life.


Pat

Like you I know that there is an afterlife. I hope your dad and my dad have met up they sound as if they would get along together. When my dad died his Golf Handicap was 18 so I hope they don't play for money !.

Jimlad9, my Dads handicap was about the same, so they will be evenly matched!
I know what you mean about "the living years" it gives me a lump in the throat.

I've waited over a year for this verdict, and I don't know how I feel, its very strange, Again I thank you all for your support.

My sympathies, especially given the circumstances.

No matter how "well adjusted" (sorry if that description doesn't quite fit) we think of ourselves, there will always be those times when we search for parental comfort and guidance. In time that can only be from within. Every time I hear 1 Corinthians 13, like yesterday, I am reminded of those feelings of loss experienced each of the several times I've read it at family funerals.

Still waiting for the hurt to pass.

Peace, Mooh.

He was my hero, my friend, my role model, apart from his excessive drinking. I wish he was back here with me.

Last night, I was in bed and my mind went walkabout. It came flush up against a brick wall which said "No! This cannot be!" I was suffused with a feeling of surreal disbelief that I was actually an orphan. My mind reeled, I shook my head back and forth and said aloud, "No!" It felt so unreal, I was confronted anew with the monumental loss of my mother and my father. It was unbelieveable to me, at that intense moment, that I would never see them again; never hear them, again; never be able to speak with them, again; sing with them, again; listen to them, again. It is such a deep, deep sense of loss. While I hope my time here is a long one, I will be deeply grateful when I die to see them again and in the meantime, I give thanks for any little *connections* with them I may experience. May it be so for all who suffer such great loss.

I too have moments where being an orphan is overwhelming. Deep down somewhere, I know they are still with me and always will be. But there is a longing for the physical hug, and words of encouragement.
As a child, I remember thinking that I was sure that i would die if my Dad did. Well, now that I'm growed up I know that things are different and you have to get on with life, but its hard.
I treasure my connections that happen on a daily basis - the song on the radio, the pennies, and many other little things.

Most of the time I live alone, in some ways its good if I feel like a good cry, then there are no holds barred, but sometimes when a little disraction is needed, I've no one to turn to. I try not fall into the chasm of self pity.

No, life is for living, so I'd better get on with it and learn whatever lesson I came here for.

Pat, turn to Mudcat, life is for living and you are not alone even if you feel lost on your own. There is always someone here for you. My Dad died in 1984 on his 66th Birthday. It was such a shock and my grief took me by surprise but there are so many happy memories to make me smile. Hold on to your memories. Cry if you feel like crying - it is such a release of emotion you WILL feel better.    ((((HUGS))))
