hello Annette,glad to see you posting...I know how hard this is on you, having lost my own dad just 4 yrs ago,,but there are days it seems like the pain is still as raw as the day he died. It is strange though,,I had an appointment the day he died to try to get on anti Ds or nerve pills,because watching him die was horrible,,,,,the final straw was lifting him out of his bed like a baby,and holding him as my stepmom changed his bed....once he was gone,though it was like having the foundation taken out from under me,,,,I felt at peace for him,,,,,the watching was the hardest part. I will keep you in my prayers ,that you begin to heal from this.
I want welcome the new members ,,I am glad you have found a place to go for support,,,,,I know how much it has meant to me. My husband has chronic active hep b w/cirrhosis...also many other health issues including heart and back problems. Being a caregiver is harder then anything I have experienced,including raising my children. It is hard to "take care" of an adult who wants to feel independent,yet is not....I feel your pain in dealing with this,,,,,,know that your NOT alone. I am not sure anyone can tell you how the end will come,as it seems everyone has different experiences......enjoy each day and live like there is no tomorrow( i know thats cliche but true),,,,,good luck in dealing with this and take care of yourself,make sure to have alone time and enjoy YOUR life too.....

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body,but rather to skid in sideways,chocolate in one hand,wine in the other,body used up ,totally worn out and screaming"WOOOOHOO WHAT A RIDE!!!"
