13 months after my husband dropped the bottle that led to his GBM diagnosis, the end is near.
I'm currently lying in bed beside him enjoying our remaining time together. His decline has been rapid yet dignified. Equipment was brought to our home on Friday and already it's redundant.
I wish everyone on their cancer journey, the very best.
hug him and love him.
my dad passed away at home yesterday from gbm.
13 months after diagnosis
his decline was rapid
he was up bushwalking on tuesday
even getting around the house on Wednesday
he needed to be sedated on Thursday...he was not there...but couldn't keep still and could not rest , (but not really able to walk properly or safely)he was so agitated.
By friday he was sleeping
before he passed away
He was asleep and peaceful
i kissed him goodnight
then not long after my mum woke me to say he had stopped breathing.
no struggle...just never took another breath.
thinking of you
this is a precious precious time
Tatsoi ... so sorry to read of your loss.
Tropical ... It is wonderful thatyou can lay next to your husband and be with him. He will know you are there and it will be making a huge difference.
hugsss to you both
