I really want some truthful answers....

My dad has had six strokes and two seizures. He is unable to speak, and has lost the ability to use his right side. He also has cataracts, and is looking weight. Today he is away on a flight to Pakistan (his home country, we live in Scotland) for two months before he comes back. Will he make it because this is the fasting month I know that he knows he shouldn't fast and apparently he my do it but it's out of our hands when be is there.... we don't know that his wife isn't going to 'forget' to feed him... and he can't exactly do it himself.
Is it likely he will die???

Please help ....? Xxxxxxxxx
