My husband's journey almost over

Postby Katie1 » Fri Jan 27, 2017 8:24 am

I wrote recently about coughing and choking. He is on oxygen and has not eaten since a little egg Monday morning, his upper chest is full of mucous and he can't clear it. His breathing is labored. He sleeps and moans. Just waiting. Soon he will be at peace. Hospice is very supportive. I will be also feel at peace when this is over. PSP is a beast you cannot control. The only relief is death. We are in year seven.

Katie,
I hope your husband's passing is peaceful. He's made it a long, long time. Should you be interested in brain donation and haven't yet made the arrangements, please contact me right away at braindonation@brainsupportnetwork.org.

Katie,

You are in my thoughts and prayers. What a relief to know your beloved's departure was peaceful -- relief from further suffering for him, and relief for you from the anxiety, stress, and burdens of faithful caregiving for your loved one.

Get some well-deserved rest, and stay in touch. You are a beacon of courage, hope, and help for others here on the same journey.
