‘Bee Gees’ singer Robin Gibb died of kidney & Liver failure this according to his son Robin John. It was just last Sunday May 20, 2012 when th e legend passed away, even though he had fought a two year battle with cancer.
”The end was peaceful and dignified, there were no theatrics. It was only later that I cried and cried.
”It wasn’t the cancer that killed my father; those reports are wrong.
”Dad had actually gone into remission and the cancer was completely unrecognizable, it was too small to detect. No scan could see it. He actually died of kidney failure.
”I wanted dialysis and CPR. They said it was futile because he was a Stage 4 cancer patient. I can’t count how many times I’d been told that it would be a futile procedure because he had Stage 4 cancer and he wouldn’t make it. Yet he always came back.
”Three days before, he was sitting up and watching DVDs and then suddenly he had a seizure. He was then dosed with sedative to deal with the side effects of his chemotherapy and his liver just couldn’t process them.
”He deteriorated to the point where it started to affect his kidneys as well.
”Basically my father died of kidney and liver failure. It was a really sudden downturn.”
Robin John along his mother Dwina at this time are in the mist of plans for th singer’s private funeral which will take place sometime in June.
Robin John had told the Sunday Express newspaper:
”We’ve been discussing hymns and songs. There will be some Bee Gee tracks, though we don’t know which yet, and maybe Roy Orbison‘s ‘Crying’. My father loved Roy‘s music and they were great friends.” Photo Credit www.drfunkenberry.com
