My husband died on 15th Feb 2019 and it all still seems so surreal. He had liver damage from birth that had never affected him, but since Christmas had various infections that would seem to heal. He had been sick for a couple of days when he took a turn for the worse on 1st Feb. From then on it was like dominoes falling with his liver failing and then infections and a bleeding ulcer that was a surprise. It all happened so fast that we are still in shock. I was married to Andrew for 29 years and we have two kids - 12 and 10. We are all finding this so hard.

My dear wife of 37 years Susan passed away on January 25 at 12:00 PM exactly. After two years of fighting a rare cancer it was a bittersweet ending. She left the house with a smile on her face so I know she is in a better place. I am left with the trauma of her last three days on earth. I can't think about those last days without stopping in my tracks and breaking into tears. I feel as though half of my soul was ripped away and I'm afraid that I might not be able to recover it. Day by day.

I lost my dear, adventurous husband (37) on 10 February 2019 in a tragic hiking accident in the White Mountains. He was a risk taker and avid sportsman. I'm left with an international move back home to Australia and a 3.5-year-old son who keeps asking when Pappi is going to get better. He knows the truth, just cannot process it. We lost our second pregnancy only a week before my husband died, so the loss in my life is so great right now. I'm just trying to breathe through every minute

I lost my Cyndi to a heart attack at work on 12/5/18. She left for work in the morning (she was a school teacher) and I never got to speak with her again. I spent the day in the hospital watching her die.

I read the comments on this site and I find myself weeping for all of us. The pain and the sense of being lost is overwhelming.  A "good day" is when I don't spend half of the day sobbing out loud.

I feel for all of you. Somehow we will get through this.

Hi there.  I hope I am posting this correctly.  Not sure how to navigate the site yet.  I am new to this site and this community.  My dearest husband, Michael, passed away suddenly on January 29, 2019 after falling on the ice.  He landed on his head and suffered two skull fractures and a devastating brain bleed.  He had been on Coumadin since age 19 which just made the hemorrhage worse.  This all just seems like a terrible nightmare.  I never got to say goodbye as he was comatose when he got to the hospital and never regained consciousness.  Mike was our Superman, surviving a congenital heart defect, three open heart surgeries and 15 other major surgeries. I knew it would never be his heart that he would die from because his heart was just too huge.  We were married 29 years and together for 35.  I know this is so new but I am just totally lost without him.

So sorry for your husband's cousin also died of breast cancer. Because we lived the closet to her my husband was her contact person after her husband. Once she was unable to reach her husband and called us for assistance. we witnessed firsthand the excruciating pain bough on my this disease as we rushed her to the emergency. You have just started the grief process and your feelings may be all over the place. I hope this site affords you some solace. Again, I am so sorry for your loss. One day at a time has become my mantra. Take care.
