Time to say goodbye
Thank you for all your lovely messages of support throughout the last week. I don't know how we have got through it and I know even less how I am going to get through today. Despite knowing for so long that Alan's time was limited and despite the many downward bumps on the journey I am still reeling from the shock of him not being here with me. But so it is, and somehow today at midday I have to say goodbye to my life partner, my husband for 46 years, my best friend. We have been so blessed by the support from people on this forum and by the amazing team of nurses and doctors he had. He was treated with such care and tenderness and respect during his final days. They were always available to us day or night. When Alan passed away the nurse and doctor came immediately and both of them hugged us and shed a tear. Such compassion and humanity.
