Dal05 in hospital

Hi everyone,

Dad is back in hospital because of a chest infection. He's on intravenous antibiotics and high steroids but worst of all he has no internet connection on his ward. He promises to be back from his summer vacation as soon as possible to make you all laugh and keep spirits high again with his posts.

Hope everyone is doing well!!

  • Hi Sophie thanks for letting us know about your dad. He will be missed on here as he keeps us all going with his positive spirits and sense of humour! I hope he is better soon and back with us. Please give him my love when you see him. Bev x

  • I wish your dad well, with a steady recovery:-)


  • Sophie, give your dad a big kiss and a hug from us. Last week he was telling us that his breathing had got much worse, so maybe that infection was to blame. Hopefully he will feel much better after the IVs and ready for road again. I'm sure there are a few summits on the Malverns waiting for him.

    Hope the IVs are helping with your breathing Tony. Looking forward to hearing all of your antics when you get back online.

  • Hi Sophie hope your dad gets better after his treatment for chest infection and won't be long till we hear his posts again because he helps keep all our spirits up tell him we are asking for him

  • Thank you so much for letting us know, Sophie.

    Wishing him a very speedy recovery and I'm not too impressed with his choice of venue for a holiday!

  • Hello Sophie, sorry to hear dad is in hospital. I hope he feels better soon. Have you thought about getting dad a mobile charger & broadband. I did this a couple of years ago. Jolly useful.x

  • Please ensure he is wearing pjs with a collar so sister cannot see the mouse nestled in. Apparently they are not fond of mice on wards. I must be there to breathe with him and support my hero.

  • Oh I'm soooo sorry to hear this. Thanks for the info and please give Tony my love - I know that he will fight his way through this, as he always does. Tell him I might visit him - that should frighten him out of hospital! X

  • Just seen this. I do hope he is picking up. He's an absolute inspiration in my eyes.

  • You have one special dad - but you know that, don't you. Always cheery, always positive, the ward will miss him when he gets back home. But we want him back, can 't do without him. Love Iris x

  • I've only just seen your post, Sophie. Your dad said he'd been struggling a bit so maybe he was brewing this infection. I hope he's getting much better on the IVs, and will soon be home. Hospital is no place for our Tony! Give him my love and tell him to hurry back soon, we miss him xxx
