Hello everybody,

I’m writing this more to get the worry off my chest, because I know what’s inevitable since my husband of 30 years is suffering from end stage pulmonary fibrosis, but I’m also hoping to hear any experience from someone who has been in similar situation. Our main concern now is of course to ease his suffering, but just in the last week he’s been twice in the Er since the oxygen tanks we have at home weren’t enough to bring up his blood oxygen levels.

He was sent home with even bigger tanks and it’s obvious he is struggling for every breath. I know this question sounds harsh, but for how long can he last like this?
