So wonderful you recognize the need for reaching out and this place is here as a haven of solace. My Dad has Alzheimers to the point I lost him to the separation of non-recognition years ago. His body lives, but he no longer knows me, any family member, my brother, his family, or our mother, his wife.
His case is hard since the body continued nevertheless healthy so the perceptual notion of robbery of my father's spirit has seemed the apt analogy.
For you, your hubby, and family, I pray you will be ever surrounded in support, peace, joy, and love while things take their course.
Hugs as deep as mountains,
