Coping with the death of my spouse.

Message 31 of 31

I'm 60 years old and my husband was only 64 in August when he had a heart attack while we were vacationing on Maui. It was the morning of the day we were to go home after 3 weeks of fun. I found him in bed not breathing and we started CPR. The EMTs were able to get his heart beating eventually and we went to the hospital for a triple bypass. Dan never woke up, although his body healed well. He hadn't had enough oxygen to keep his brain alive so my love died 5 days later. He hadn't had any symtoms of heart disease but I continue to try and find a clue that I must have missed. My brother-in-law and sister were with me when this happend, sharing the same condo. I know all of us relive that morning over and over. We were true soulmates. Connected at the hip our family would say. We had retired 4 years ago. I find it hard to come up with a reason to continue although we have a very loving and supportive family. I still cry at least once each day. I would appreciate any advice from someone who has been through the loss of a their spouse.
