  • Is there a support group at the hospital?

  • So sorry to hear that. Enjoy every moment you have with him, talk about everything, tell him you love him, tell him what he means to you, do something together you always wanted to do. Pray. and I'll pray for you to.

  • I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. Support groups can really help because you are with people that know EXACTLY what you are going through and and help you get through it. It's going to be hard but it's going to get better with time. ((((BIG HUGS))))

  • I am sorry. Enjoy him while you still have him. Talk, remember old times, laugh with him. Meanwhile, it will help your stress level to get your (and his) affairs in order. Find out where all of your accounts are and all financial matters. Where the safe deposit box keys are and what is in those. Get accounts in your own name, get his power of attorney if you don't have it already.
    This is such a hard thing to think about, I'm afraid that I am crying now. ((hugs))

  • Enjoy your time together.Act how you normally do, make his favourite foods, do things like how you did on your first dates together.And yes get all the financials together.. you don't want to worry about it when the time is there, you'll be too upset to think properly.And if it's done, you can take in the love of your family and remember him in happier spirits. Death isn't the end, just a new beginning in which you are not ready to start yet. Keep your thoughts open, and your heart warm on his memory. Life will be hard, and somedays you will think your life is over too. It isn't, life is just going ot quietly continue on, and when you're ready to join again..there will be people outh there and on here to welcome you with open arms.Take care, and keep us here on Cafemom in mind when you feel lost or unable to continue on.. I'll be here too if you need some caring words and a cyber space coffee :)

  • *HUGS* I am so sorry. I don't know what to say... just take one day at a time. Love him, and show him how much he means to you. Enjoy him while he's here!

  • Sorry. Most hospitals offer free support groups. Check their flyers or go online and fin them. WHere I live there are always programs like that.
