Reality Can BE a Very Sad Event
Saturday, March 04, 2017
Today I took DH to the doctor again. It was a very sad time.
DH has lost 33 pounds since January when he had his last visit with this doctor.
DH doesn't want to eat, has no appetite, and is sleeping 17-18 hours a day.
The doctor and I agree that we need a few new tests done, which will happen on Monday.
The purpose of the tests is to determine if it is "time".
Both Ted and I have been strongly in favor of the Right to Die with Dignity for years.
Depending on the outcome of the tests, we will make our decision about "time".
While letting go will be empty and painful, it is horrible beyond description to see what is happening to him every day. Every day is a "new low" for my beloved husband.
The time for dreaming of recovery must come to an end.
I realize perhaps someone reading this will have a strong difference of opinion on this. If so, I understand. Just please, do not argue with me or tell me I am wrong in our beliefs.
We all will face this kind of reality, and we all must choose which is the right thing for ourselves.
It is my hope that my choices will be honored.
Reality can be a very sad event.
Thank you for all of your support. I need it.
