In 2006, I was told my Husband’s lung disease (bronchiectasis) had turned terminal.  This is the story of our journey in my own words.  I wrote this firstly because I wanted to get down on paper what this experience had been to go through.  In deciding to publish, I am hoping that I give others who are going through or gone through the loss of their partner the courage to be brave, to face the awful truth and come out the other end and face the future, whatever that may hold.
