How to Live when you're dying

watching my gorgeous - selfless husband Dave slowly lose his battle to the cruel disease that is Cystic Fibrosis i just want to give him the world he so much deserves, he has always gone through life never grumbling or asking for anything - and he wouldn't dream of it now.  Like most he has dreams, he has a bucket list and he probably doesn't have the time. In the last few months ive seen him fight to stay well with every ounce of strength he has, but riddled with infection his lungs are failing him 18% is what hes working on - so in 4 months hes gone from his poor but stable 32% to 26% to 18% hes now been diagnosed as having CF related diabetes and were currently trying to find a hospital that might consider him to go on the transplant list. But the wonderful concoction of bugs hes got in there are proving to be a blacklist for fitting the critera.

31 and were discussing funeral songs on the 2hr drive back from leeds? Where's the justice. Cystic fibrosis is cruel - your born with it and you spend your entire life fighting it. Your whole body constantly hammered by physio - Nebulisers - anti biotics and Iv anti biotics. You dont get days of rest or time off its constant.

I desperately want to help him tick off his humble bucket list - i wholeheartedly think if there is anyone in this world who deserves it, its him. My unassuming caring soul of a husband. My CF fighter xxx
