Another star in the sky

Another star in the sky

Rog decided yesterday morning at 0230 to let go, i had been sleeping on a bed by his bed for the week, i fell asleep and the nurse woke me gently " he's gone when you fell asleep Julie"

The care at the hospice enabled him to die with dignity , calm and his family and friends around him for seven days. At times it was like the Royle family Christmas special when nanna died, catch it on Youtube if you have never seen it!

The decision was right, i needed to be his wife for those seven days not his nurse.

I'll say goodbye for a while, we will enjoy Christmas, i will return home after, with wise daughter at present.

My thoughts with you all still on this journey

Julie and Delma

Oh Julie! My heart goes out to you. Your only comfort is, Roger is finally free from this evil disease, may he rest in peace.

You will never regret your decision to be his wife for those final days. It's kept me going this year.

Let your daughter look after you, it is possible to have a good time, amongst the tears.

Sending very large hug and all my love.

Lots of love

Dear Julie I'm sorry to hear that you lost Rog, he had had enough of living with the ravages of PSP and I so pleased that he had a peaceful and dignified end to what had become a miserable existence. Sending love and comfort to you and the family. It seems that lots of the sufferers of this awful disease have given up the fight at the end of this year, maybe they couldn't bare the thought of continuing the fight into the new year.

Julie & Delma. Kisses and hugs so nice that you could be his wife for the last seven day and leave the caring to the nurses. I felt the same last month when Liam lost his battle with that terrible disease. Goodbye for now and happy thoughts over Christmas. I shall be doing the same. Ronnie xx

I missed logging on yesterday and just found your post. Bless you. I am so sad for you. All this time you have been a steady positive person and it show by the love you had for Rog.

I'll await your next post after Christmas. I want to be the wife every day and get so frustrated.

It's good to hear u got to be Roy's wife again and to enjoy just being in each other's company again. I'm sure Rog is at peace now, looking down on his amazing wife and sending you strength for what is to come. I hope the good memories come flooding back to you and your daughter. Much love xx

Im glad that you were able to see Roger's final journey as his wife, friend and love of his life instead of the caregiver that so many understand was just not a pleasant place to be.

So sorry for your loss. May you and Delma finally find some peace as Rog is now rid of PSP.

Hope you had some peace and goodwill during a tough Christmas. May 2018 be much better for you than this year.
