Wishing you strength for what will be a difficult time whatever the outcome LadyA.
Willing you strength Lady A and a peaceful 'slipping away' for William if his time has come.
I'm so sorry to hear about William. Wishing him peace and you strength.
I'm holding your hand, Lady A!
I'm thinking of you Lady A. I hope William remains peaceful, and if it is his time, that he just drifts away. There is little more any of us can ask. xx
Wishing you both strength & peace xx.
He does sort of focus on me when I lean over him, and he tried to smile. But his mouth is just hanging open. I tried him with a half teaspoon of yogurt. He seemed eager for it, but then it just sat in his mouth. No attempt to swallow at all. The nursing director asked if I wanted subcutaneous fluids given if they can't get anything in by mouth. I said that unless it would make him more comfortable, then no. She said that he is comfortable, and they have everything in place to keep him comfortable. I feel the subcutaneous fluids would just prolong this time when he is slipping into death. I don't want to prolong this for him.
If it's any help, Lady A, I agree!
Thinking of you Lady A at this traumatic time.xxx
Peace to you both Lady A.
It`s good William isn`t suffering now but everything`s in place if he does.
Hoping that the days to come are peaceful for you both.
Much love to you and William LadyA.
Thinking of you LadyA
If it is of any help , I would have made the same decision.
As William is peaceful there isn't really any point in adding/changing anything. The Nursing staff will recognise if he is in pain and needs any relief. I know this is very sad for you LadyA but your decision not to do anything to prolong the inevitable is very brave.

Thinking of you Lady A I would do the same as you xxx
Peaceful is good and peaceful is kindness to you both. William will not have any fears and neither should you. Reaching this stage is inevitable. William has his faith to comfort him and you can do nothing more than wait now and hope that he remains peaceful.
We will wait here with you and for you, holding you both close in our hearts and minds.
Take care of yourself. Love Maureen.x.
Thinking of you and William Lady A , wishing you strength and sending love xxxxxxx
