My dad had an attack yesterday around 6:00P.M. He was just telling me that he had put the windshield in his truck and it was ready for inspection. Once mom notified me I went over and tried CPR as best I could but I was not able to revive him in a short period. The ambulance people finally got here and they got a pulse but he's not breathing on his own. A cat scan will probably reveal what I already know. He was down for too long to make a recovery. I’m a realist and my mom is going ballistic. My brother is ready to shoot the DR’s, My sisters are telling me to beleive in GOD and all will be fine and I’m too torn up to focus on the problems right now. If you pray please do that because a miracle is the only thing that will bring him through. He's in the CCU at UVA.

So sorry to hear, Del. Never a good time for something like this...But specifically not a good time of year right now.

Thoughts and prayers for a full/speedy recovery, Del!

I said a prayer Del. FWIW I know exactly what you're going through. That's how I lost my dad (see my sig). The good thing is he's still here. There are some good Dr's these days and they can do great things. My dad was gone before they got him to the hospital. Keep your head up and remember that everyone in the family is going through this hard time. Someone needs to step up and stay strong for the rest of the family.

Del,...pull yourself together, sit back and take a deep breath. Be strong for him and the rest of your family. Logical medical decisions may have to be made and one of you needs a clear head.

You did a great thing, CPR to your Dad. Even a breath or two over a few minutes time is enough... if he has a chance it is because of you!

My 2 little guys and I will have a word with god tonight before bed...

You posted, so this is obviously an outlet for you, PM me if you need advice or to talk.

thoughts with you Del.

as chucks said - good thing with the CPR - keeps the flow and O2 going around. it's all you could have done until the medics arrived.
