My Dad

Hello everyone

I've come here a few times for support regarding my Dad who was diagnosed with MPA last April. I live in India and was so excited to be coming home and look after him in just 2 weeks.

He went for his usual 2 hour walk yesterday and we believe collapsed on his return home.

He was found by a friend this morning who I asked to check on him. He's currently in intensive care unable to breath unaided and has sepsis and pneumonia.

The doctors have told me to come to see him. I'm heartbroken. Why does life have to be so cruel and why didn't the doctors make sure his last chest infection was cured.

Please everyone pray for a miracle for my lovely Dad 😞

  • Hi Karen, my Mum had a similar experience, she contracted the awful fungal pcp pneumonia which is common in imunosuppressed people.

    Please stay strong for you Dad, my thoughts are with you.


  • Thank you Paul, he is having help with his heart, breathing and they're just about to put dialysis in. ICU nurse said he's very critical and I need to fly home soonest.

  • My Mum also had a heart attack and kidney failure, hopefully your Dad is strong enough to fight through this, my Mum ended up very disabled after her three week itu stay and twice on life support. I hope he pulls through. Paul.

  • So sorry to hear your dad is so very poorly. Please do talk to Lynn x

  • Thank you for your support and good wishes everyone. Miraculously, Dad left ICU yesterday and was transferred to the renal ward. He is doing well, just hoping he will make a full recovery now and be able to have a good quality of life.
