My father passed away at the age of 69 on the eve of my 33rd birthday.
It happened in Heart Center where he was confined from July 6 2010.
He was initially admitted because of blocked bloodflow to his left foot. Blood flow was restored by an operation but the foot did not recover. The doctors recommended immediate amputation but my father wouldn't have it. Gangrene set on, his kidneys failed and he went into cardiac arrest.
This is the first time that something like this happened to our family. I hope that others can take what happened to us as a very important lesson.
