    My husband is dying from Marfan's syndrome and I'm lost....

    My husband has been treated for many aneurysms due to Marfan syndrome over the past 25 years that we've been very happily married. He has a new aneurysm, though that is not operable and we were told he'd most likely not live another year. I'm just totally lost as to what to do/how to support him/and how to quit crying all the time.

    I am sorry you have had this bad news. You will find the strength to cope and support your husband. You have been through so much together. Put every unnecessary thing out of your lives and take each day as it comes. I wish I could give more. Sera

    Be there for him and love him like you always have. We lost our 13 year lod son to cancer. The Docs gave him 6 months and he lived a year plus. Its not easy but be strong and know he is going to a better place. God bless you and give you the strength to be strong.

    Greetings KunaIdaho! I am sorry about what is happening. I hope the needed comfort is gotten.

    I found out Candida albicans can cause aneurysms also so I would at least stay away from sweets to avoid strengthening that problem since Candida loves sweets.

    If a cry is needed it might be best in my opinion to try crying out of his presence maybe with a walk outside or doing something to get the mind off of things by helping others to decrease his stress. Sweet words to him may also be useful. Of course everyone can decide what they would like to say and do. Peace sjb
