Thanks very much to Ian for organising the nosh and natter last week. I was sorry I was there for such a short while. As those of you who were there will know, I had to leave early as my father was ill. In fact he died later that afternoon. So it's been a very sad time. But he was 96 so he had a great innings. His health was starting to get worse so it is some comfort that he did not have a prolonged death.
He had AF and all he took was flecainide. He died officially of old age. So it shows that it is possible to live to a great age with AF. He didn't take an anticoagulant - he should have done and we discussed it. But he would have forgotten to take a dose or doubled up and I think it would have ended up causing more problems than it would have prevented.
