Welcome, luvofmylife.  Mike sounds like one helluva man and I can hear your pain of missing him. I just woke up for the upteenth day thinking of how I SHOULD'VE done things differently for my Frank during his last days.  I think it's very possible that you have PTSD - I think I have it.  All I can say is that by telling your story and reaching out to other people who are feeling the same way, you may start to feel less lonely and less desperate.  Yours was the first post I read when I logged on just now - waking up at 4:30 and not being able to get the last days of his life out of my head.  I understand your heart is breaking - I'm so sorry for you and for your kids.  Please visit again.  We need each other.  Juls

Welcome, luvofmylife.  My husband had multiple myeloma, another blood cancer, but he was never strong enough to have a bone marrow transplant. I was 18 when we married, just out of high school. I've never lived alone - went from my parent's home to being married for 41 years - and I'm trying to figure this all out. It will be 19 months next week.
