Following repeated chest infections this year, David's swallow has deteriorated and food/fluids have been going into lungs causing more infection which resulted in him being taken from care home into hospital a week ago yesterday. They would not give intensive treatment due to quality of life again after so was put on end of life care. On Tuesday last week I asked for him to be taken back to his own room at the care home where they were anxious to give him the best care they could. Well they have looked after him so well (and me giving me all my meals and giving me the empty room next door to David to sleep so that I am on hand ant time night or day) but this morning his breathing is very weak and a pause between each breath and his hands are very cold. He has not been able to speak to me for over two days but after 53 years of marriage it is so hard to see him lingering I just keep telling him how much I love him and to let himself go listening to his favourite music, but I am sure he wants to stay......it is heartbreaking what a viscous disease.
