    PP you and the Duke are always in my prayers. Peace for him and strength for you. I wish I could be there for you and reassure you, but you just have to believe I'm here holding onto you in my heart. I hope his family acts properly. Hugs Marge

      Ray, Visiting you son will be good for you. There will be a lot of 'firsts' without Helen. But you sons still need their dad, and you still need them. Sending good vibes and saying a prayer for you. Marge

          Shelley With some cancer patients it's difficult (especially for men IMHO) to face the reality of the disease. When my husband was diagnosed, I behaved like someone I didn't know. It triggers all the worst reactions. My worst was anger.

            PP Yes I do still have it. The heartless son saw it a year or so ago and wrote LOL on the bottom of it. I cut that part off and I'm planning on framing it. It means a lot to me. Blessings to you, too. Marge

              PP we got a hospital bed as soon as Don went into hospice. I couldn't get the wheel chair around in the bedroom. At night as I lay here on my iPad, I look at the dressers and nightstands with the finish scraped off from trying to get him into bed with the wheelchair. Another reason, to be quite frank, is that I couldn't deal with the thought of him dying in our bed. That's how my other husband died...in our bed. I h...

                PP every time I open a CC message from you I hold my breath. Don was the same way about pills. He reluctantly took a baby aspirin and an eye vitamin every day. Luckily the morphine was liquid, but he still wasn't happy about it...until he really needed it. When he started it, he had no more pain, but slept all the time. Is that the kind of morphine you have for the Duke? From this point on you'll need all th...

                  Maris Sorry for your loss. It seems like you both lived life fully until the end, and made some wonderful memories to keep tucked in your heart. It may take a while before you start to feel comfortable in your new normal, but we are here to help... Marge

                    Lisa You've been through a lot, selflessly! Reconnect with those you love. You need that now. Guilt will turn into relief. What happened was bound to happen considering the people involved. Move on, be happy, be well. Hugs Marge
