Caring for my husband with late-stage lung cancer
@turtle115– Hi. How was your night? I know that this is not the right time to ask how you are but is there anything that you need that Connect can help with? Any information that you need or a confusion?

No, I am fine. Just never thought dying would take so long. Now that we are confined because of the virus it seem I just sit here watching……at times I think the way he is looking, acting, reaching And Breathing I am sure he will pass. But this has been days and it is exhausting for both of us. I go through moments of tears…..other than morphine, pain pill, and something for agitation he has only had sips of water and applesauce. He doesn't want anything and I am told this is normal. I think I mentioned we live in an assisted living and I finally have them changing him……he was able to use the urinal up until three days ago….now I just sit, watch and pray.
