Dad didn't answer the door when I went to see him today like I do every Sunday, and I thought that was odd but then I thought that maybe he'd gone for a walk.

I just got back home to a phone call. It was a nurse, telling me my Dad has been taken to hospital, having collapsed in the street with a suspected heart attack. I'm going over there now.

Oh, dear! (which sounds dreadfully inadequate but I can't think of anything better)

I hope he's okay and recovers quickly.

Thank you. Early indications are quite favourable for a quick recovery, I would say (thank God).

Oh that's so frightning for you! Hope that your father recovers well and soon .

What's frightening most of all, is that I stopped to write about it before rushing off to the hospital...

I really have no excuse for that.

Oh no! and as everyone above says, hope your father recovers quickly and fully!

Thank you. He seemed to be doing reasonably okay when I saw him, and I'm fairly optimistic he'll make a good recovery.

Oh no. I hope you're dad's okay and it nothing more serious than heatstroke or something. *hugs for you snd your dad*

It seems to have been a minor incident. He's been having AF off and on for a few years now, and that combined with the exertion and the heat...They're keeping a close eye on him in hospital.

My Dad's as tough as old boots, but still -- thanks for the crossed fingers! (and the big hug, much appreciated).

((Hugs)) That must have been a major shock, I hope that he recovers very fast, you are both in my thoughts.

How well you know your Dad - that must be exactly what he had done.

I do hope he is recovering - and I hope that your sister doesn't leave everything to do with his stay in hospital up to you.

Oh lord! That's terrible.

Here's hoping he came out of it well and that they are able to prevent it from happening again.

*hugs*

I'm thinking of you - and hoping very much it is only a minor heart attack, and that your dad will recover well.

Thank you; and it looks like it may have been.
