After suffering from MS for over 20 years and a two week hospital stay, my husand finally became so disabled, he ended up in a nursing home. We both hated it. It was not how our lives should have gone. I visited every day for hours and helped feed him lunch. Four months later, they put the facility on lockdown. I visited every day and stood outside his window, trying to talk on speakerphone. 4 months later, COVID got in and I watched from that window as it took his life. I was unable to be with him, he died alone. He was a kind, gentle soul and deserved much better than having so many years of health and mobility stolen, then his life taken in days. We had been together for 46 years. I miss him so much, it hurts.
