My dear husband passed away from brain cancer early in the morning of July 11th. As many of you know I struggled with my decision to move him to a nursing home earlier this spring when his care got too much for me to manage at home. As his decadron was slowly tapered his condition gradually declined over the past few weeks and I don't think he recognized me most of the time the last 2 weeks of his life. The evening before he died his respirations increased and my gut feeling was to stay with him at the nursing home that night. I am sorry that I had fallen asleep when he died, but I hope he sensed that I was there with him. I am profoundly heartbroken that he is gone, but I know he is no longer suffering anymore.
