I've waited until now so that all Danny's friends and family have been able to spend their time with him; it's now the early hours of the morning in Australia.
Today, Thursday, Danny's son Michael, DIL-Kelly and his three grandchildren made their precious memories with him and Anna. They'll all be sleeping now and returning to PL tomorrow as Danny has wished.
Danny has made a directive and, as of tonight, there is to be no further medical intervention other than pain meds if required. Danny's dialysis has been stopped and in a short time, he will simply fall asleep and slip peacefully into a coma, maybe for a few days, until he passes. He will be able to hear and Anna will be with him, talking to him, squeezing his hand, loving him - the whole family has been reassured that Danny won't suffer pain in any way and Danny's not frightened, he is prepared to rest.
Danny has shown us all how to be courageous and to be so grateful for life, to fight for every moment. He is so brave. He's wishing for us all to be strong for Anna and his family and to celebrate his life. It is such an honour to be his friend and at this time, all I wish for is peace for him as he sleeps.
... he said, “Thank them all for me.”

Everyone here on A2K has, in some way, played a part in Danny's life and he is so thankful for you all. He wants you to know that.
Please send your thoughts and love to Danny and his family in Adelaide in the way that you do... I'm sure he will hear all of us as he comes to rest...
Thank you ((Crew))x
