    Question about morphine

    I was very nervous about giving my husband morphine. .25 ml is really a very small dose. It will relax him and help him to breathe easier. It will be OK. Honest.

    a momth and a half into it

    Hi Patrick, Welcome to a great forum. I'm just sorry you need to be here. There's something that I don't see mentioned here, that I have learned is of major importance, and that is to start now to leave a legacy for your family. Now, I know how very important a positive attitude is with...

    Oh Renee, I'm so sorry. I just discovered your message. Gosh, I have a hard time just getting back to the former cals group, and I never saw the message. I'm not on the forum that much, to be honest. But I will email. I understand. We were married 27 years. My email is [email protected]

    Hello. I'm new here.

    Hi Renee, Yours really was a whirlwind of a journey, wasn't it? I thought ours of 2 years was fast. I'm still trying to figure it out, too. Jeff & I were married 27 years, and he was my best friend and soul mate, too. So, we mourn that loss as well. 16 weeks, 1 day, 11 hours.....

    Hello. I'm new here.

    Hello everyone. I feel a little strange posting this. I've only just joined this forum, although my journey with my husband and ALS ended 3 months ago. Seems a little backward. I guess I'm looking for others who can help me figure out what the hell just happened here. A little background...
