Daddy update

Been here with my Dad for three weeks. Spent the whole day with him yesterday. We went in to Cambrini Hospital for his latest chemo treatment. He drove. He was in very good spirits.

Was home by lunch time and had a roast pork for dinner. Then there was a shriek from my mother. He just passed out on his bed. Kept him breathing and his heart going until a fire engine and two ambulances arrived. They jump started his heart and took him to the Monash Medical Centre.

He is unconscious but in a stable condition with lots of tubes and what have you.
