Hi Everyone I feel so alone my husband got worse this February after chest infection, and he is now bed bound and unable to do anything. He cant talk only odd words, and sometimes I get a smile and a hello. We are soul mates and are so close never argued we have just had our 30th Wedding Anniversary and he was not aware I just sat and cried most of the evening, its lonely as I spend time doing everything and no conversation as he sleeps a lot., I miss the man I knew so much, I was asked to consider DNR as the nurse said that if he had a heat attack today, we would not resuscitate him as he would not come back the same it would be worse, I could not make that decision as I wanted him back, but it was done by the doctor and I have it handed to me in an envelope to keep in the fridge in case ambulance is ever called. They told me he is in end stage Alzheimer's but could not tell me how long that is but said he may start to refuse food and drink. I want him treated home if he is poorly. what a journey and I never thought it would be so hard. sorry to go on Funny how relatives don't offer help. thank you.
