My Dads fight is finally over

Have posted the odd time here in recent months about my dad who had bronchiectasis and COPD. He's had lots of admissions to hospital in recent months with 9 IV antibiotics within 3 months. His struggle is finally over as he slipped away from us on Tuesday evening. All his family was present and it was peaceful. He was retaining carbon dioxide which made him very drowsy, he just left us peacefully. We're heartbroken as we prepare to bury him today. This forum helped me find answers about my dads illness, invaluable during the past three months. Thank you everyone.
