none of us know what to do. Crisis always comes too suddenly and usually at exactly the worst time. You are just going to have to rely on your inner strength and trust your judgement. Good luck to the both of you.

If there is someone willing to come be with you, call them. If not, because of the damn virus, then stay on here and we will hold you in our hearts while you wait. Do the busy things you can. Strip the sheets. Clean up the kitchen. Put on music. Do what you can to keep yourself occupied while you wait.

Sending you cyber hugs.

and then my face gets wet. This is an unbearable time for you and I am so very much wishing it to not be so and that his suffering will end, and yours will abate.
One year ago today I was in Germany burying my 54 year old brother in the roots of a huge tree and just talked to his wife and we remembered together. I will continue to send you light and strength in the best way I know how and I feel your pain.

There aren't.

If there were I'd sing them to the cosmos and someone would hear and comfort you.

As it is just know that tears stream from my eyes as I tell you that knowing you only through DU I love you as a sister and through you, him.

Be with him, take the time to say the things that must be said and find small solace in being afforded the time to do so.

You have been true and devoted and have given him your love and care and thatís what real love is all about. If you have someone that can be with you might be comforting until you can get that room. Meanwhile we are here for you and here with you. (((HUG)))

76. Oh, I am SO deeply sorry, Soph0571...It breaks my heart when I hear of yet another beautiful life

being taken by cancer. We will light a candle for your beloved & send earnest prayers for him, you & all of your loved ones & friends. I know you don't know me BUT I sincerely wish nothing but love, comfort & the best support for you. It's hard to look up when everything seems to be falling all around you. My prayer & wish for you friend, is that a door opens for you to be with him, holding his hand & being there. It's true that people who are "comatose" are aware that the people who means the most to them are there with them. I am LITERALLY crying & I've never set eyes on you but you're a fellow human being & having undergone what your honey is going through, is enough. I always told my husband that in a weird way, it's easier to be the sick one because alot of the time, because of the drugs given for pain, etc, the patient is just sleeping. God bless you & please know that you have a GANG of people here on DU who are ready, willing & able to be there for you & your, even if it's virtually.

78. I am so sorry. I hope you can with him but either way he is resting

with his sure knowledge of your love enveloping him like a cozy blanket. Love transcends distance and time and he knows that your spirit is right there beside him. I am sending you my hopes and prayers for the best. You are not alone on this difficult day.

79. Very sorry you are going through this.

I know from personal experience that any illness right now is likely complicated by the COVID situation. Unavoidably difficult situations made worse.

81. In Buddhist thought...

...there is no hard line between life and death. It is a gradual process that starts before death, and continues afterwards until reincarnation. His consciousness and mind live awhile longer after he leaves his physical body. In this belief system, there are specific things that you can do to ease his journey.

- He is leaving an old and broken body for a new life. We have to be willing to not hold our loved ones back from this transition by excessive attachment. Let him know that it is OK to transition -- help him get free of fears and regrets. Talk about his good qualities and achievements. There is nothing more he needs to do on this earth. Everything will be taken care of.

- Remain calm and supportive so as not to disturb their peace of mind during passing.

I found it extremely helpful when I have attended others while they transitioned. It will be harder on you that on him. Just keep the focus on him while he transitions.

Peace, love and compassionate thoughts during this difficult time. We'll be here for you afterwards.

83. I wish you comfort

Hang on, one minute at a time. I hope you can go be with your SO. I hope someone can be with you if you can't be with him.

88. Soph, I am so profoundly sorry to hear this news.

You said you don't know what to do. Just love him, and be kind to your soul. That's all you have to do right now.

We are all with you.
