    Finally got to go and see him yesterday and its emphysema that caused him to collapse. He's adamant he will be home by midweek but i ain't so sure...still, he's in the best place so fingers crossed :thumbsup:

    Spookily, he's in the same block, in almost exactly the same place Shelley was last year but the floor above...deja vu or what!!!
    :eek:

    Oh what a shame. Glad his spirits are obviously upbeat though and determined to come home.

    Did/does he smoke?

    He does (not a great deal now though) and also worked in the local coal mine as a teen hon, not sure either did him any good!!!

    No coal mine wouldn't of helped?
    Is this the first time he's been diagnosed?

    He's had it for a while but its always been mild, he feels it coming on, goes to the doc's and gets a weeks worth of whatever they were giving him for it and job done.

    I think the stress of them moving house just before xmas has knocked him about, plus the fact he bought some cheap ass baccy because of all the cash he's been laying out for the move...i dunno...

    Was just horrible to see him looking so old and frail in that bed
    :(

    It's a shock when you actually realise that they are old and frail isn't it?
    More scary for him though when he realises it :(

    Hope he is up and about soon Jon. I would think a visit from you cheered him right up ;)
