I lost my husband to heart failure on November 25th.  He was a heart transplant recipient 20 years ago and started having health issues this past spring.  I miss him so much and I feel very alone.  We have two kids one that is 16 and one that just turned 9.  We were married 10 years but together a total of 13 years.

I'm sorry for your loss, Carrie.  I've found tremendous support through this board (and its earlier iteration) over the years, especially in the parenting section.  I hope you will, too.  More hugs from me, Christine

I know its tough to see the positives at a time like this.  Feel blessed to have that 20 years that the transplant bought.  My wife had heart failure,  and a pacemaker,  she was on transplant list but didnt seem to want it done.

I don't want it to be his legacy that his death destroyed me.
I need to honour his life by rebuilding my life.
