My husband is a survivor, like seriously he has had so much thrown at him and he has done it all with a wonderful attitude. To quote him "It is what it is"
But this time I think the mongrel (or meningioma to be exact) has got him on the ropes.

looking back at my post I see I was literally falling asleep at the end of my desperate post. Thankfully the love of my life is still here with us but they are still working on getting meds right. So hard when all you can do is not enough 😢
Thank you Kate for your email. Unfortunately I lost the love of my life last Wednesday morning (31st). I look back my post now & see the end didn't make sense I was so tired & upset that night.
Thankfully he passed in his sleep in my arms in bed. I take comfort in this as he passed how he wanted. He was so strong until the very end never once complained.
Now we are all just reeling and I am sure will be for a long time
thank you also to Emily for your words of support earlier
