I'm so sorry for your loss. Was your husband on hospice? Not sure about your question.
Widow, I too, am sorry for your loss. It is very difficult to watch our loved ones pass, especially in these sorts of circumstances. Do not feel guilty, you did the best you could do and followed hospice instructions. I agree that it would have been more difficult for both of you for him to awaken then start the dying process all over again. He was at peace and at least was comfortable.
Im so sorry that happened. All any of us can do is what we think is right at the time, based on what we know at the time. Be kind to yourself and please don't feel guilty.
