The funeral will be the end of one chapter in your life Anna, and the beginning of another. We don't forget the ones we love, nor should we; however, we have to carry on, and you will be able to function better after the funeral than you have been able to for the last 10 days. It is a life changing experience in yours, and your children's lives. Tomorrow you have to be strong for the children; we'll be thinking about you and the children.

I've just read your post from 24/3, if you remember nothing else, remember you were there - he did not die alone.

I work with bereaved families and have been the person holding a dying person's hand on more occasions than I care to remember. As he left this world, you were there and that is the most anyone can do.

With regards to diagnoses and post-mortem, I know it is cold-comfort but medicine is educated guess work - we listen to what is said, formulate some ideas and then test them, sometimes we are wrong and every doctor/nurse remembers the cases that were missed.

A pulmonary embolus can be an easy thing to spot, it can also be very difficult and mimic many other conditions - the only reliable test is a CTPA (computed tomography pulmonary angiogram) but it involves a lot of radiation, so would only be requested with reasonable suspicion.

Knowing that your husband died of a potentially treatable cause must be devastating and no words can make it any better, I only hope to offer a little insight.

PM me if you want to talk in more detail.

With sorrow for your loss

Hi Anna

So very sorry to hear of your loss - I think you have a long walk 'up hill' now - but I promise those memories in your rucksack will keep you going.

I've been away & just found this. I know nothing we say or do can alter the dreadful situation but I hope you have a little comfort from knowing so many people care about you & the children.
I'm sure many of us will be with you in spirit tomorrow.

Anna, I've been away from Epz for a while and came back recently to read this terrible news.
I'm so so sorry and my thoughts are with you and your family.
Be strong Anna and I hope to chat with you once you are good and ready.
Please remember that you have a lot of good solid freinds on here who will listen and help you all they can if and when you need it.
Take care Anna.

Anna, As you know I have been away from EPZ a long while, today I saw this post, so please accept my belated sincerest condolences to you and your children Anna.

Having met him briefly I feel for you even more. I am truly saddened by your loss.

Take care and be strong.
