Yes, PF, we have plenty of Roxanol. The long acting pills were to replace some of the Roxanol. Have you ever tasted Roxanol, LOL, neither have I, but dh says the taste is unbearable. He shoots it down the back of his throat. I know he would not consider taking it subling, at least as long as he is conscious.

Many thanks for all the reinforcements

Nope, never tasted it, but I do understand it's not nice! Well, any port in a storm if you run out of pills before the patches kick in.

Take care of yourself! And Rich, of course.

Beth, I'm so glad you chose to include us in your life. I can only imagine how hard it is for you to go thru the daily routine of caring for your dear husband and yourself as well. I was with my dad the last 90 days of his illness and I know that is hard work and changing each day. My thoughts and prayers are with you both.

He gave up the fight this morning. I really couldn't tell for sure that he had died, he just stopped breathing, it was very peaceful. Just minutes before, I woke my cousin who is staying with me and we held both his hands.

Have made many phone calls to family, still fairly numb, may go outside for a walk.

Beth, you are in my prayers. What wonderful things he did to prepare you for his leaving. I'm sorry for your loss, but he was really a caring person and showed how much he loved you.
