Thanks we are all hoping he makes it at least to 100, he has done well to make it this far, nasty infections like this really aren't good for the elderly.

Sorry to hear that mate. Last year my elderly dad was in hospital on three seperate occasions with chest infection, we thought he was done for, but he came good eventually each time.

It's an emotional roller-coaster, and you find with any other outside problem just bloody compounding it all.

Hope he gets through this.

My Grandma lived to 101, so obviously they must have some robust constitutions to start with.

I sat with my dad as he passed away some 25 years ago. Oddly enough the only one of his children and the one with which he had the most rocky relationship !! I was asleep on the carpet next to his bed, I just couldn't keep my eyes open as it was a long and tortuous affair.

You get over it in time. He was only 65. Mind you, a lot don't get that many years.

I just ducked out for a quick *** and mum was gone.
You miss them, but no one wants to see them continue on in that state.

Nicknamed my 11 week old daughter Sammy a few days ago. The thighs on her could feed an African tribe! I hope she ‘gets it’ one day. My own little Sammy Thaiday!

I know what you mean! We've just had a coworker arrested in Perth. Procuring a child under the age of 16, possession of child pornography etc. Sick shit. You think you've got some idea about a person and then you discover they are garbage. Sorry about grand dad, 98s a great score. Hope he sparks up. 100s just around the corner.
I just found out today that a guy was escorted out of the building across the road by the FBI. This happened about a week and a half ago as part of some Aus wide sting into child exploitation. They apparently busted 22 people, I wonder if your guy was among them. Thankfully, I didn't know the guy particularly well. Only met him a couple of times.

Well, the guy from my work goes to court today in Perth and nothing in the news articles intimated a connection to a network. I do think he was caught or discovered in a couple different ways, an internet sting and in a park. He was trying to entice children with money, throwing it on the ground with notes attached. Sick ****.

Ahhh, yeah doesn't sound like the same thing at all. When I heard today, I just instantly thought of your post.

Despite the family drama atm christmas dinner is going ahead minus my Granddad and father while myself and my mother are both sick with the flu and will only be making a short appearance to drop off presents and wish a merry christmas as a lot of the family are going on a cruise and we don't want to make them sick.

Sorry to hear that. My mum turned 91 today which is a solid score. I know that like all the males in my family I won't even get close to that. It's a bit weird knowing I'll almost certainly be dead in a few short years😒 unless of course Morkel sees me crossing the road as he approaches!!

Apparently Greg Page (The Wiggles) just went in to cardiac arrest on stage during their bushfire appeal concert. Medics had to perform CPR on him for 25 minutes before they were able to transport him to hospital, fighting for life.

Not good :(
