"Dads' life saved"

About: Southampton General Hospital

My dad had a heart attack and drove himself to hospital whilst in the middle of it!! (silly man). He had an immediate Angiogram in the cath labs and was told all his arteries were blocked and he only had one choice- a quad bypass. The next morning dad was taken for the major op whihc,if i recall -took 9 hours to complete.Within a week he is back to his normal self and with a new love for life. I never did get the time to say thankyou to the amazing heart unit at SGH.. So here it is... Thankyou all so much for letting me see my dad for a few more years yet !! It's the best thing i could ever have wished for.
