Sadness

Hi.

I've had AF since 2015.

I've posted many times and asked for advice and support.

Thank you all.

On Monday my beloved husband passed away after a valiant and brave fight against cancer.

I'm ok right now.

But I'm sure I will need your support again.

Thank you ALL. X

Thank you. He was a great man, father and granddad. Loved so much.

Appreciate your getting in touch.

Not sure what to do next.

But I will fight for AF to be taken seriously in this world.

Sending you a big hug gwyn53, I know that at the moment you must be heartbroken at the loss of your husband. I was in your shoes this time last year when Mike lost the fight with prostate cancer.

You have done all you could in being his caregiver and take comfort that you did everything you could to look after him.

Love and best wishes, Jackie xx

Bless you Jackie.

Ive been overwhelmed by support.

He didn't realise just how loved he was . A shy yet outgoing guy.

Loved him dearly. Married for 45 years. Best of times some awful times. This is just surreal.

I feel for you. Please if you need me I am here. Thank you.

Hi Gwyn, this must be a terrible time for you x.

Even when an illness means death is to be expected, when it happens the feeling of shock and unreality is still as strong.

Take care and remember you have AF 'Friends' here ready to listen and support you whenever the need arises...

Dear gwyn53 my deepest, deepest sympathy to you on your sad loss. I hope you are keeping well. I would be absolutely lost without my husband of 56yrs, we married when he was 18 and I was 23, a cradle snatcher I was called. lol. I have not long found out that I have this atrial thing it is quite frightening shoved on Bisoprolol and warfarin, how did you manage to cope and not panic? Love and best wishes to you, Gladys xxx.
