Caring for my husband with late-stage lung cancer

Yes, good support. We FaceTime our 4 children every night to say goodnight. We figured if it be his last night the children would find comfort in knowing they talked with their father "last night". We are living in an Assisted Living facility so we have a lot of people around.

I'm glad to hear that you have so much support in place, @turtle115. Your children sound like exceptional adults in caring for their father and calling on a regular basis, how fortunate you are!

I'm concerned about you, though. Are you giving yourself some breaks from your husband's bedside? Are you able to spend time with others?

Will you please share what you are doing for your self-care?
