My wife passed a few weeks ago. Ultimately, due to starvation from being unable to swallow food. It ended up being relatively unremarkable, close to the end she would sleep more and more until one day she didn't wake up. Her heart stopped the next day.

She was so scared of reaching the point that her lungs couldn't exchange even with the bipap, I hope this was more peaceful for her.

I'm so sorry for your loss Brian - I hope that it was also peaceful enough for you as you now process that loss on the other side. I applaud that you were able to advocate for her wishes to do it her way 💚

I’m sorry you and your wife have gone through this. May your love for you each other sustain you during the days ahead of you. My husband, too, passed away a few weeks ago. My heart goes out to you and others who find themselves in our situation. Leslie
