My Dad took his last breath yesterday after a death rattle that lasted around 2 hrs. I was near him when he was rattling . The sound was very scary though we are finally at peace that he is freed from all the sufferings he endured during this battle with PSP. Thanks everyone on this wonderful forum . I only joined a month back and posted few questions. It educated me and prepared me to get through his final stage without any last minute craziness. Finally he died naturally without any medication with the sparkle in his eyes . 🙏

Dear Dpriy. I recently lost my wife to this terrible disease so I know exactly the mental torment you are going through. All I can say is stay strong and think of what your dad would have wanted. Deepest condolences from my family to yours.

Dear Daisy

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I thoufght that you might like this: it is part of a poem that I wrote after my husband died. Love and hugs AliBee

He is no longer hampered by horrible disease.

His voice and speech are better so he can raise his voice in glee.

He can sing and laugh with angels as his spirit is now free.

You cannot help but miss him and feel sad that he has gone,

but you can’t be sad he’s been released

from his body which went wrong.

I do believe in heaven

and life beyond the grave,

So when you feel that gentle breeze,

or the wind upon your face,

he’ll be giving you a great big hug,

or a gentle soft embrace.

wishing you and your family my deepest condolences. I don’t know (don’t think you can know until it’s over) where my husband is in this cruel and depleting journey, but I hope when you and your family think of him you’ll remember good times and not all the heartache and trauma this disease puts us and our loved ones through. I haven’t read your prior posts, but if your mom was able to keep him home and tend to him through the entirety of the disease, she’s a treasure beyond words. Peace to you and all who love him.

warm hugs to you DB201. Your words about my mom is absolutely true.She took care of him with utmost dedication. I joined them during the last stages after his covid early his year.Yes his entire journey was at home.We would have not got through the final stage of this horrendous disease without the knowledge and support we received from this wonderful forum. I browse thru the old posts which is a treasure trove of information.I hope whoever undergoes this trauma find this forum at the right time.
