my husband passed away

DianePAOctober 19, 2006

some of you remember that I'd been a caregiver to my DH Clyde, he had multiple mylemona, he passed away Oct 12th, a week ago today. we are doing good, we know he' in a better place, not stuggling to breathe, or in so much pain, etc, i think that alone has helped us, besides all the prayers said for us. we were married for 38 yrs. when he took that last breathe and he looked so peaceful, couldn't help but be relieved that he was no longer struggling! he went in the hospital Aug 12th, was paralzyed from that day on from below belly button down, which really was a blessing, his feet were so swelled, and catherater kept shutting off, he would have been in so much pain if he could have felt that.he was in the nursing home from Aug 21st till he passed on the 12th, so he had been out of the house for 2 months to the day, so we had already went through that, so that helped too. the kids and grandkids are doing ok too.DianePA

It does help when you know they are released from their pain, but I know it's still hard.

We just marked the first anniversary of my husband's death on October 17. He, too, was released from a sad and painful situation.

You have my sympathy, Diane.

Hugs and sympathy from me, too. It is just a bit easier knowing our loved ones aren't suffering any longer.

Dianepa...I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm sure that while you are at ease that he is not suffering you still wish he was with you. I'm newly married and can not imagine how it would feel to lose my husband. I'll keep you and yours in my thoughts and prayers.
