It's very hard. I think my biggest problem is not calling the hospice nurse often enough. They are always reminding me that I should call if something doesn't seem right.

My Guy is now my husband. He has declined significantly- especially over the holiday weekend. Over the weekend, I had two nurses on two separate days tell me that he has a few days to about a week or so. I'm gone from advocate to caregiver to funeral planner.

I truly don't mind caring for him. The hardest part is hearing him moan or say, "No, no," when ANY part of him is moved. I lose it at the times when he hurts.

This post is bittersweet, metamorphosis. I want to say congratulations on your marriage but I'm sorry you both have so little time left together.

I know it must be so hard to deal with seeing him in pain. Thank God he has you to care for him and be a warm, loving presence.

Sending up prayers for you both!

He has passed away. He will certainly be missed.

metamorphosis,
I read your post and just feel so sorry for your loss. After I read it, I went back to the beginning of this thread and read through it all again. Your strength and love for your husband show through every post you made. You fought a valiant fight right along side MG. Every action you took honored him and the love you shared with him. I am glad he can be at peace and out of pain now, but I know you must be exhausted and feeling alone. As always, I am sending good thoughts and prayers your way.

{{{{HUGS}}}}
