how does someone have a heart attack and die almost 2 weeks later from something else at the hospital? I just lost my dad on may 2 and i m lost, so lost. he had a sudden death heart attack in the store with my mom. they revived him and brought him to the hospital. he was placed on a vent for 3 days, when he woke up he was talking raspy from the tube but had the biggest smile on his face when i walked in the room. he had no other problems. i was able to tell him so many things and i am grateful for that. the next day he was put back on the vent for no stress on his heart, the next morning he had another heart attack. now he has developed pnuemonia. now he is on more meds. the next day they said that his kidneys weren t functioning well he needs perm dyalasis. they also administer a pic line in his groin knowing that it would cause a blood infection. he starts dyalasis and gets sepsis all within a couple of days. my dad was like this for 6 more days until they finally told us that he was having complete organ shut down, he passed away and i blame the hospital. please help me understand.
