Celebrate: Sad News

I'm very, very sad to report that my husband died this week. He was only 50, and he didn't have anything wrong with him. He was literally fine one day and gone the next.

I'm afraid I wonder whether it may have been due to the stress of taking care of me for the last 8 months. While I'm not very ill, my memory is quite shaky...  I have good long term memory, like I remember everything before the last 5 years pretty clearly, but my short term memory is defective due to my arteriosclerosis and the hemorrhages in my brain that occurred 8 months ago. The hemorrhages are lodged in the area of short term memory and that makes it difficult to me to recall the details of day-to-day living. Every day I wake up and only remember a few of the things (mostly very big/unusual things) that have happened in the past weeks/months. The 'regular stuff' of daily living just seems to vanish overnight.  This is obviously hard for me to handle and it was hard for him, too. 

It's very sad that he's gone, but at least he's at peace now and has no more problems to worry about. 

I'm still here, but I wish my life would get easier. I still have to take a bunch of meds every day because of the brain problems and must now try to deal with everything on my own.  Please send me your wishes for good luck and improvement -- Lord knows I need as much of both of those as I can get.
