Les Braddock

Members of the Udon Map online forum are grieving for a male Australian expatriate who died at home after being admitted to the hospital.

Les Braddock, 60, had been in the intensive care unit at Fort Prachaksilapakhom Hospital in Udon Thani’s Mueang subdistrict for four days when the news of his condition went public. semperfiguy, a user of the online forum Udon Map, a forum mostly frequented by foreigners living in Isaan, published the post on Thursday, September 15.

“I just found out this afternoon that the Australian fellow, Les, is in the ICU at the Army Hospital,” he said. “I ran into his wife at the hospital today and she said Les had been in the ICU for 4 days now with kidney failure and his condition is deteriorating daily.”

Only 24 hours after the post, Les Braddock died from his illness. His wife had decided to take him home after doctors said there was nothing they could do for him. He passed away on the evening of September 16.

Mr Braddock and his wife were running a restaurant at the Baan San Saran Village where the couple lived. A forum user wrote,”Les has been trying to get back to Australian for quite a while now to have heart surgery, but the doctors were not prepared to operate until his condition improved from a motorbike accident last year.”
