acceptance of GBM

How can you tell when you've really accepted the reality of GBM?  My precious husband is in his 25th month, and I think I've accepted the inevitable... my son isn't so sure.  My heart still breaks and I cry so much when I look at him in that awful hospital bed.  He's getting the best care available in a private nursing home and we do have hospice, but God is this hard.  If you could die of a broken heart, I would.  We've been married for 38 years and he is the love of my life, slowly fading away before my eyes.  I have to ask to feel Gods presence every single day and pray for mercy for my precious husband and strength for myself just to be able to go on.  I need so much help, it hurts so bad.

kim55,

There are no words to comfort you, but a picture is worth a thousand words, find a happy one and look at it everyday. Ask The Good Lord  for guidance.

When you have that much history with another person, accepting the reality of GBM seems impossible.  I'm so sorry you are in this position.
