I hope they can get the syringe driver sorted out quickly.
I nursed my husband at home to the end. It's tough, exhausting and heart breaking, but you will never regret it; I found that was a comfort of sorts. Thinking of you.
Oh, tre. I'm so sorry this has happened so quickly. You're a brave and strong lady, and I'm sure your courage and strength won't fail you now. We are all here, holding you in our arms, when you need us. xx
Tre, you and David are in my thoughts. Remember we are always here.
Thinking of you in these strange hours. Hoping you're okay.
You are in my prayers and thinking of you both with love. xx

David died at 5.22pm yesterday afternoon at home peacefully in bed . I was holding his hand and his two sons, sister and brother-in-law were also here with him.
I cannot believe it has all happened so fast.
David was registered as a tissue donor for the Queen Square Brain Bank for Neurological Disorders which he decided he wanted to do years back when he was first diagnosed. We both worked in medicinal research. He hoped, as do I , that although nothing could be done to make him better, that by doing this it may in some small way help the progress to better understanding and a cure or prevention of dementias in the future. This is David to the last-always wanting to do something for others. He was a very special and much loved man and I could not have found a more loving, faithful, generous and honest husband. The last words he said to me, a couple of days before he died were "I love you". He will leave an enormous empty hole in my life but I feel very lucky for the time we had together.
