Lost Husband to Alzheimer's
My husband passed away on Aug. 9th. and was buried on the 12th. Although I have that empty feeling and miss him so much, I would not want him back in that condition. He lost the ability to swallow and his body was stiffening up. It is just a dreadful disease but I know he is now free of it. Thankfully I set with him the night before and kept telling him that I loved him through the night. One time he opened his eyes and tried to make a sound and I hope he was trying to tell me the same thing. The next afternoon he passed away with lots of love and support around him. I am taking one day at a time and concentrating on the times we had before that terrible disease robbed him of his life.
