MOKAI Patolo is still by his daughters' bedside at Lautoka Hospital, waiting for them to recover.

Last month, the 31-year-old lost his wife and youngest daughter after a brutal knifing incident.

"I am still at the hospital, waiting for my daughters to get better so that we can go home.

"We are waiting for the reports from the doctors as to when they can be discharged.

"Although my daughters have not completely recovered, they have started to recover and are now able to walk and talk."

Mr Patolo said once his daughters Fisi Peau, five, Grace Patolo, five, and Ana Kaitonua, three, recovered he intended on moving into his new house and work together as a family to get through the traumatic past.

In an earlier interview with this newspaper Mr Patolo vowed to be the best father to his three hospitalised children.
