Hi Robyn, I am sorry for the loss of your dear husband of 40 years. You must be going through a very emotional period right now. Without knowing the specifics of your husbands condition it seems to me that you could not have done anything to prevent this and your doctor has validated this. I do know that it is normal for people to ruminate over every small detail leading up to the persons passing and beyond.
It is normal too, to feel numb. Are you looking after yourself? There are lots of resources on the website that explain the importance of self care and tips to cope with grief
Please don’t feel like you have to go through this alone. If you are unable to talk with your daughters, talk with supportive friends or ring someone on the Griefline Helpline. We are here to listen and assist where we can. All the very best to you.
