There's no easy way to say this and since I have been posting on this thread and the fact that Chuck and I loved to cruise.

 Yesterday and 1:23PM Chuck went to be with the Lord.
He was lucid enough to hear me tell him how much I loved him before he took his last breath.
I do not regret taking him out of the hospital and having home with me and his two daughters.
This is the place where he wanted to be and he was surrounded by the people he loved the most.
We held him and stoked him for the last 7 hours of his life.
I hope that he will have the opportunity to meet Goofynina and maybe hang out together in a better and more comfortable place without any pain or discomfort.

Thanks for all your support.

Joannie

Joanie, my heart broke when I read this post.  My deepest sympathies to you and your daughters.  Chuck was so lucky to have you caring for him and loving him as you did and I know that the months to come will be sad and difficult for you.  Please keep posting if you need a virtual shoulder (make that shoulders, there are so many here who care) to cry or lean on.  I'll be thinking of you as you muddle through the upcoming weeks.

Life with renal disease is too short as we all know, so why not enjoy your life and live it to the fullest...

I've tried to make his life as pleasurable and enjoyable as I possibly could for him no matter what stage of his disease...

Now I am his fighter. I am fighting for his life. I am not ready to give up or let go.

Joannie, I am so sorry. You have fought the good fight that, in the end, cannot be won by anybody. But you held it off and brought happiness. I hope you find solace in that and peace, contentment, and in time, happiness yourself from all your good memories.

 :grouphug; You have our deepest condolences

Joannie,

I am so sorry to hear about Chuck. I am on dialysis myself and waiting for a kidney. My fiance would feel the same way if I passed. Hope he's in a better place.

Joanie I am so very sorry and saddened to hear this , we had all hoped Chuck would get better.    It's no comfort today but in times to come you will look back and be glad that you were with Chuck when he passed, I was with my husband at that time and I am so grateful that he did not die alone.  Please don't desert IHD, come back and let us know how you are when you feel up to it. We all care about you as you can see from these posts.
Sending love and prayers to you and your family  :grouphug;
