Don is not going to make it, and has requested they stop feeding him. He has suffered far to many interventions and now the thing he wants most is to be flown home by Air ambulance, just to be at home for the little time it takes for my lovely brave man to die.

Sometimes I feel as if I feel nothing, then other times great dry sobs just come out of no where and go as quickly. I look at him, his eyes their shine, his smile and feel as if it is unreal...

No prayers and wishes please, just that he has an easy time from here on in.

Exactly my sentiments. You being there and him knowing you are there is all that matters.
Not one day goes by I do not think of you both and your lovely girls. I hope he gets his wish to be flown home to your sanctuary.

The only wish I have is that you and Don have that precious time at home.

Therese, I only just found out about Don's condition. I am so sorry to hear of all his suffering, and yours. I can only imagine what you must be going through. I will pray that his remaining days are easy, peaceful, and filled with the love of his devoted wife and children. For you, I pray for strength and comfort. I am so very sorry. You have battled so much for so long. It's just not fair.

I'm a regular reader of Sling's and just want to say that I do pray that your husband's passing is as smooth as possible and you will be in my thoughts during this trying time. I am a stranger but truly wish ease for the both of you.

I'm here via Sling's blog and just read back through the last several posts. I'm so very sorry and just wanted to add my own thoughts and good wishes. As we Quaker's like to say, I will be holding you both in the Light.

In Our Father's House,there are many mansions.No doubt,there is a place prepared for Don.

You try and hang on to every moment and breath you 2 take together sweetie. Death cannot nor will it ever separate you both...ever. Your souls are one...he is just going home before you right now to get it ready for you someday. Love you sweet sister, CS

I don't know you but Cazzie has put me onto your blog. As I relate so well to her empathy and generosity, I was sure that I would enjoy your writings on her recommendation.

I am sorry to have come at such a time but you seem like a very intelligent woman, in touch with your own reality and I am sure you will enjoy the special times you have with Don when he comes home to pass. He will relish in the fact that he has such an angel to see him through.

Love to your family

I have also found you via another blogger so I am a stranger who hopes Don's journey will set his spirit free and that you can find peace somehow in that his suffering will be over. Best wishes to all of you.

The strength to let him go is much harder to find than the strength to keep him with you. I have been there so I send you strength, take whatever you need.

My father died at home after long periods in hospital. Hard work for my step mother, but if you can manage it, it is truly the nicest and kindest thing you could do. But if you can't, no one would think less of you. It is a traumatic time.

It is such a blessing, in so many ways, that Don was able to express his wishes. I do hope his wishes were realized. I do hope you will, one day, be OK again. And I do hope Don's spirit is soaring again - just as it always has.
