My beautiful husband passed away Sunday Feb 8, 2009. No extreme measures, no feeding tubes, no in home nurses, nothing. He refused to prolong this way of life, where he could do little more than exist. He thought of us too. Didn't want to put us through that. I admire his decisions, so do my children 6, 10. Although not very well, he could walk, talk, eat up until he went into the hosp. Even then he was calm, saying I'm having trouble breathing but I want to wait till the kids get off to school. I didn't wait! He wrote he was done fighting and died peacefully a couple days later in the hosp.
In January 2008 my husband was diagnosed with ALS. I don't know what to say except that it is the biggest nightmare of my life. I'm scared and still can't believe any of this is happening. Besides myself, my son (10) and daughter (6) need their father to watch them graduate from high school, then college, and then be there to watch them get married. I can't even imagine what my husband must be feeling. It hit us so unexpectedly like a freight train and hasn't slowed down at all to let us step back and take it all in. You all are in my prayers, I am sorry you have to go through this.
