Okielady, my sincere condolences on your loss. Now he is at peace.
When you are feeling up to it, please come back and continue to be a part of this forum. Your experiences as a caregiver can be very helpful to others, and then Jerry's death will not have been in vain.
I just want you to know that your husband was one of the first for me to post on the forum after his transplant. He gave me that boost of hope I needed at the time. I am so sorry for your loss. Please take as much time as you need to heal after this loss. You are in my prayers.
Hello Sanorlie and welcome to HealingWell. Please accept my sincere condolences on your husband's passing. Mine too, passed away in April of 2007 from ESLD. So believe me, I have a good idea on your feelings right now. Hang in there....it's dark right now but just take it one day at a time and eventually you will begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel. You are not alone in this overwhelming grief......others here have experienced it too.
This site helped me through it.........so you are invited to come visit anytime time you feel the need to. I joined HealingWell about 5 months before my husband died.... I lurked for about 2 weeks just reading everyone's posts...when I finallly got up the nerve to post myself and someone answered my post......I actually cried. Then after my husband died I just mostly lurked for another couple of months........Then I started posting again.....I found out that my experiences with dealing with ESLD, even though it was over, could still help others going through it. Even though my husband lost his battle with it.....he hasn't died in vain......I am making sure of that.
Take care......thoughts and prayers......
