It's difficult to make crucial medical decisions when your emotions are up in the air. (Published 4/12/2016)

Q:

I can't get past some things leading up to my husband's death. I keep wondering if I made the right decisions at the hospital, up to when he was in hospice. And what really haunts me is that the night he died, I fell asleep in the room with him. I feel as if I let him down and even though I was in the room, I wasn’t really “there for him.” I have a feeling that I will never forgive myself for that. I don't know how to get past this. Can you help me, please?
