My thoughts are with you. I know this was not inexpected but it is still a difficult time. Your husband is now and forever pain-free. You sound like a strong woman .Now is the time to just take care of yourself. I trust you have family support as well. On Thursday I was at the funeral of a close friend's mother. All were glad that they would not have to watch her condition deteriorate any more. It was not cancer but an illness of over 6 years which had recently greatly worsened . Keep posting if it helps.

I am so sorry to hear about your husband, I was only thinking of you today and contacting you to see how you were going, my husband starts first bout of chemo tomorrow on a clinical trial, I do hope you will still continue to post here and share your experience of how you are coping as well. Bless you and I hope you find the peace you are looking for.
