Well..sorry you cannot stop it.

i could sometimes delay it for a couple hours by keeping him calm and giving him something soothing to do.
because of a lifetime of Rx drug use, his liver was already so badly damaged...anything else (even over the counter) could not be given to him.

i just do not know how to solve this. I couldn’t solve it for myself either. I was actually in the process to put him in a NH when he passed.

I knew the morning I woke up and realized immediately that I had slept through the entire night....I knew then he had passed during the night. No way he would let me sleep.
