    My Dougee passed away

    Two weeks ago today, Doug passed away. It was deeply shocking as we genuinely believed we had longer, but he had developed an upper respiratory infection which had cleared up with antibiotics but his breathing never recovered. He had been given a NIV and cough assist but his anxiety was stopping him from using it enough.
    I am so thankful that he didn’t have to keep fighting and also glad that we hadn’t got to the point that he would have needed carers coming in. I know he would have hated it. He was only 55 and so very loved and now missed.
    Sending my best wishes to all those who are fighting this disease and also their loved ones ❤️

      Our deepest sympathies to you.
      Since the end is inevitable, our only consolation is that we get some say in how we go, and it sounds like Dougee reached a point that was right for him.
      I can only imagine the sorrow felt by the loved ones we leave behind.
      Hi, I'm Eddie.

      Still walking and talking, and wondering what the future will bring.

        Oh shellymarie

        I am so sorry. 55 is no age but I agree with you at least he went before carers were needed. im not looking forward to that at all. my husband is coughing and lately I know hes finding things difficult.

        Sending my love
