Caring for my husband with late-stage lung cancer
As tired as I am I know myself and I wouldn't sleep well not being here. I know, the caretaker has to take care of herself. But I have to do what I have to do. Thanks for the suggestion.

@turtle115– I agree, you have to do what you have to do. I think that we are just hoping to protect you from becoming ill. I hope that you slept some last night.
You are right, @turtle115, I am concerned for your well being. It would be sad if you were to become ill in this process of his transitioning from this life to the next.
Having said that, however, it is important at this time in Andrew's life to be true to yourself and to the relationship you have built with your dear husband. You must carry on in the way that gives you the most peace.
