Thank you to everyone who left comments yesterday. This is the toughest thing I've ever had to go through and yet I'm happy that the suffering part is over ... he was ready for it to be over even though he didn't expect it at that moment. At least that final moment was fast ... less than 30 seconds. When I used to think about losing him I couldn't imagine a moment without experiencing extreme grief. Oddly I've been blanketed in calm and what feels like a little added strength. I suppose it's what you would call acceptance.
