I'm sorry to hear about your loss. Typically if someone has a major heart attack
, even after revival, that part of the heart has permanent damage, and depending upon how long he was down, other tissues in his body could be damaged as well. With the hit of a second heart attack so close to the first one, the shock
to the heart can be quite severe and most times, not able to bounce back. When the heart is not pumping enough oxygenated blood throughout the body, it starves the rest of the tissues and organs causing them to shut down. Tack pneumonia
on top of an already taxed heart, and you get even less oxygen circulating. It sounds to me like the hospital did everything in their power to help your father. I know it is tough, but at least you were able to get a few brief moments with him in the end to tell him how grateful you were and how much you loved him. Many people don't get that opportunity. Again, I'm sorry for your loss, and God be with you and your father. I will keep you in my prayers.
P.S. - I would like to suggest a book for you to read that I have had several of my patients in similar situations read. Go to the library or bookstore and pick up a book called Final Gifts. It is written by two hospice nurses who talk about their experiences and different ways to help you through the grieving process. I highly recommend it.
