Life has been turned upside down..

In my last post, several months ago, DH was heading back to work.
He did for two days.. Then quit/went back on disability due to anxiety.
He started drinking more.
The end of August I asked him to visit his parents for a trial separation.
After a few days it was clear to me that I didn't want to live with him anymore and I was going to start the divorce paperwork.
October 4th he was hospitalized with liver failure.
October 6th he had his 40th birthday.. Clinging to life in the ICU.
Kidney failure soon followed.
For a short period it looked like he might pull through.. There was some improvement.. But then a rapid decline. Now his body cannot handle anymore dialysis.
Today he goes home to his parent's house for hospice care.
He does not have long.
It is all so surreal to me..

    So terribly sorry to hear this sad turn of events. Sometimes life works in funny ways and there's no way of figuring any of it out.. Advice of counselling is good to be able to share the many thoughts and emotions you may be feeling and to give you advice on the best way to deal with your situation. Wishing you all the best to get through this very difficult time xxx
