The love of my life

by Tammy

I lost my Sweet, Sweet Husband very suddenlly Aug 26,2012. He had an anurisim on his brain stem. One minunet he was there and less than 48 hours later he was gone. We had been married 11 years July 27th. How could he be gone less than a month later?! He was ony 43 years old. I don't understand how this could be happening. How can it be that I will never touch him again? I was there when it happened, we were in the emergancy room, He told me his head really was starting to hurt and then He started gasping for air. I can't get that picture out of my head.

the love of my life
by: silver

I can certainly see that picture.My husband and I celebrated our 33rd anniversary on Sunday.Tuesday around 8am I was rushing him to the emergency room because he was having trouble breathing. The oxygen level in your blood is supposed to be 90% or better.His was 68.They tried a nasal cannula and couldn't get it higher than 80 so they tried a mask and a breathing treatment at the same time.I was holding the mask as he fought it. The last words my husband ever said to me was when I asked him why he was fighting the mask he said he didn't know.30 minutes later he was intubated and on a respirator.5 days later he was dead.It was like,"What happened?Why did he die so fast? His whole body gave out organ by organ.I know it was not as fast as your husband but I think the feeling is the same.SHOCK I still can't make sense of it.Step by fast step he died in one week.He would have died that day(Tuesday)if I couldn't have gotten him to a hospital.I miss him so terribly.I never expected to be a widow before I became old enough to retire. We had plans.Plans that are gone now.Visit the poetry site. I do often.There are some touching poems that let us know that we are not alone.sending love and prayers your way GOD bless you and give you strength

The love of my life
by: Doreen U.K.

Tammy I am sorry for your loss of your very young husband to an aneurysm. I have a son of 43yrs. and I am feeling vulnerable as he is always having headaches.
My brother-in-law got to hospital in time and his aneurysm burst. Some don't get to hospital in time. Many don't even make it to the operating theatre.
I am so very sorry for your loss at such a young age. The days of grief ahead will be very painfull for some time. Grief of a spouse is like nothing one can imagine. I hope that you will have a good supportive family and friends at this time as it does make a big difference in the days ahead. I lost my husband to cancer 5 months ago and I am grieving a lot at the moment. We were married 44years. I long to touch my husband and feel his body. Stroke his face. Massage his legs and his whole body as I used to do whenever he felt like this. it soothed him from the cancer. WE have no choice to go on in life but it will be very hard.

sudden death at 80
by: Anonymous

My love died instantly less than a month ago 12 hours before I turned 76. We had been married over 29 years. He was the love of my life, and everyone thinks I am coping so well, but that is only on the outside.
