Members drinwi Posted September 11, 2012 Members Report Share Posted September 11, 2012 I finally figured out how to post.I lost my husband on 9/2/2012 at 10:39pm. We had been married 4 months to the day. I am 51, and this was my second marriage. He was my heart, my true soul mate, he restored my faith in being loveable, and was part of my healing after the devastation of divorce after a 30 year marriage. He was the light, the laughter, the best gift ever given to me.He had some surgery Friday, Aug 31, it went extremely well. Once he was out of recovery and in his regular room we chatted, kissed, and then he had 2 massive strokes. He never regained consciousness again. I stayed with him for the next two days, my family, and closest friends joined me. On Sunday night, my brother, and his closest friend stood with me as he took his final breath. I wept and thanked him for loving me so well, for always telling me I was his number 1, for keeping his promise to always pursue me, protect me, and love me. It was the hardest thing I have ever had to do but I won't ever regret being there with him as he crossed the finish line.Today I am an emotional wreck, I have cried rivers, I am anxious, I am not sleeping well, and I hate all of this. I want to hurry it up, and I want to be able to breathe without a shudder, and I want my brain and my body to realize and accept that he won't come through the door anymore.All of that to say, that I hate this. So because I don't know how to make an original post, I replied here. I hope to gain some support and some courage from those of you that have gone before me on this journey.
