Re: Realization of Death

My husband died after a long bout of cancer. I know it was his greatest fear that he would lose his mental accuity as the disease progressed. I was glad that he got his wish and stayed pretty much alert until his death. I do wish though that he was not aware of the last few hours of his life, but unfortunately he knew everything that was happening. In one sense it was a blessing that he was able to make a decision as to decline further treatment at a hospital (he died at home) and for that I am grateful. But yes, he knew he was dying, and in a sense I guess that was what he wanted. But at least he knew he was surrounded by people who loved him.
