Sad news

My father died today as a result of a heart attack.

He had settled into his temporary care home, and had had a good night's sleep. This morning he ate some breakfast and was washed and dressed. During the late morning he began to have problems breathing, and whilst he was being given oxygen by the on-site nursing staff, he had a heart attack. An ambulance had already been called, and the home's nursing staff and the paramedics resuscitated him. He was then taken to the Accident and Emergency Department at the local hospital, where he was made as comfortable as possible. He was, however, very weak and he died at approximately midday.
