Heartbroken Today

Today my heart has been broken.....my beloved hubby of 53years passed away quickly and quietly. As I cuddled him, my daughter and son held his hands and we all in turn told him how much we loved him. The last four years he had shown enormous courage and was so brave, nothing short of being a hero. Already I am feeling totally lost and numb and not sure how I am going to carry on without him.

My heart aches for you, Zeberdee. The numbness is the way shock helps us get through the trauma of such a loss. I remember. Talk, rest, just be where you are for now. It's so good you and your children were all together. I hope their love and the loved you shared with your husband, and knowing you cared for him all the way, will comfort you. I'm sending a hug and love, too. Ec

Hello Zeberdee

I am so sorry. You and your children sent him off with a lot of love. That will have been so good for him. I would add that I have been with a number of folk when they go and even in sleep or far away I feel they know when there are those about them who love and care.

Give yourself time now. Loosing someone you love is a deep loss.

From your posts you gave him a lot of good care and love.

I wish you peace in this painful time.

Warmly

Kevin

Hi Zebredee, I am so sorry to hear that your husband has lost his battle with PSP. May he rest in peace, finally free from this evil disease.

Please welcome the numbness. It is what will get you through the next few months. You will carry on, because you have to. You have children and family, they will help. BUT you must let them! Of course it's going to be hard, but dont under estimate the strength that PSP has given you.

For now, let others care for you. Only do what is needed, care for yourself, as you cared for your husband.

Sending big hug and much love

Lots of love

Hi Zeberdee, So sorry your lovely husband has left you and your family. He is now free of PSP. In time you will adapt.

Now is the time to grieve for him and remember the great moments that 53 years of marriage has given you.

May he rest in Peace. You did so much for him in his time of sickness. May you rest easy knowing you did your utmost and loved him to the end, despite all the difficulties of coping with PSP.

J so sad for you. We all wonder if we will cope alone after such a long time. Somehow we do. Your hubby had a good death and lots of love around him. So be glad about that. It will be a struggle for a while. Everyone's while is different.

Love and hugs to you and family.

It is my Les' funeral today. I know exactly how you are feeling and there are no words to express the grief you are feeling. Les spent 4 years fighting this vile disease.

Dear Zeberdee

I'm so sad to hear that your beloved husband has finally given up his brave fight against this wicked disease. He is eventually free from the awful consequences that it inflicts and is at peace. It sounds as if he had a good passing surrounded by those who meant the most to him. Your numbness will help you through the next painful days and I'm sure you will all pull together to help each other through.

Sending much love and a gentle arm around your shoulder. Don't forget to take good care of yourself over the next few days/months and years as you go through the grieving process and come out the other end with the memories of the good times you spent together.

Dear J,

my heartfelt condolences to you and your family at this unbearably sad time.

It is a comfort I'm sure, that he went peacefully, surrounded by his family.

He was a true soldier indeed.

It is time for you to start caring for yourself now, and start the healing process .... it will happen in its own time.

Much love. Althea

I'm so very sorry to hear your sad news. It is good that it was a quick and quiet death, although I know that does not help your thoughts right now.

It sounds like he was a real fighter, as so many PSP sufferers tend to be. He did well. Make sure you take the time to grieve properly, and only move on when you are ready.

You have my thoughts, and love.
