Passing on the following email. ==== It is with great sadness to report to you that my son Robert (32 years)(Octobloke) died in Southampton general hospital on 15 May after prolonged treatment of 11 weeks. He had corrective heart surgery on the 26 February after a long period of slow deterioration. The surgery, which should have taken 6 hours ended up as 15 hours in which the surgeon nearly lost him 3 times. There followed a period of 11 weeks in cardiac intensive care during which time his partner Donna never left his bedside. He loved your site and discussed it with me every week and thought your support for his previous visit to hospital was marvellous. best wishes to all Bob Williams ==== I'm sure he's following this thread from a better place. God bless, Octobloke.
