My husband of 3 years passed away suddenly on September 20, 2012. The physician told us he had one to two years to live without a liver transplant, less than a week later he was in a coma and less than a week after that, he died. I am 38, he was 50. We have no children, only two Siamese cats which we adore(d). Very grateful to have found this community as a young widow.

I lost my beloved husband of 3 years on September 20, 2012.  We were together for 5 years, married for 3.  I am 38, he was 50, we had no children, but we had 2 Siamese cats that we adored.  Two weeks before he died, the doctor told us he had 1 to 2 years to live without a liver transplant, which was scary enough, but less than a week later he was in the hospital in a coma, and less than a week after that, he died.  So it was very sudden.  I am so grateful for his parents who are close by and share my grief, and plenty of friends but right now I am most interested in talking to women who have been there.  Glad I found you all.

If you look at my profile page, you'll see so many similarities between us - I'm so grateful.  What an awful experience you have had - I'm beyond sorry for your loss and the circumstances.   Take VERY good care of yourself -

Hi littleblue.  I am so sorry for your loss.  Your pictures tell the story of a very happy couple.  I am so glad you found this sight, the people here have helped me a lot.  I am sure you will find help here, also.  It is so very hard for people who have not lost their significant other to understand what your going through.  People here all have lost their love and understand.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.  I will do my best to help you.  I will send you a friend request, if you wish you can accept

We definitely share some similarities! I haven't been to clientsfromhell in a while. Thank you for the reminder! I, too enjoy my job, it gives me something to focus on. I was worried my creativity would be totally stunted, but it hasn't been, so I think it's serving as at least one outlet. One of the challenges is that your whole life-perspective shifts after such a loss, and sometimes it really is hard not to "lose it" with people and their pettiness. I have cut back to a 4-day work week, because I always feel myself moving toward a "melt-down" by thurs. There is simply nothing like going through the experience of saying goodbye to your spouse, and the emotional mayhem that follows. But I am glad for this forum. And I am glad you have family support. Scott looked like a sweet and kind person, you can just see it in the pictures. My heart goes out to you and his family. I look forward to staying in touch as we "muddle" through these incredible challenges.   - Katja.

Yes, this is place where you can share such a photo. It vividly brings back the memories of my husband's last night, I didn't know if he had awareness of my presence, but it doesn't matter. I was there for him, and witness to his last breath...the most bitter-sweet moment of our lives together. We, too were together for several years, then married for 4. It took me a long time to find the right man to marry (damn it). But in answer to your question, yes, I am a designer at an agency here in Madison, WI. Not sure if I will be staying here or moving back closer to fam. on west coast, or...??? What about you?

Littleblue - thank you for sharing your wonderful photos, the love you had for each other can be seen. And the photo of you and your husband in the hospital...it really brings tears to my eyes. I have photos of my husband in the hospital, even when he was in hospice, but I am not sure I can post them because it's so painful to see the change he went through. But in your photo, I also see the love. Thank you so much for sharing.
