    My DH went into a coma-like state for 9 days before he passed, has anyone else ever experienced this with their AZ love one?
    Joyce, my husband was "out of it" for years before he died that I couldn't say for sure. The last three or four weeks he was fighting the pneumonia and ate or drank little and then he completely stopped eating and drinking a week before passing so he was really that what you are describing?

    Hi Sandi, Yes, my husband had not been able to swallow food or fluids, and then just went to sleep for 9 days. He said two clear sentences during that time even though he had not been able to say anything that we could understand before he went into this coma-like state. Noone else had written about this type of ending for AZ patients so I was second guessing the doctor and wondering if I should have gotten a second opinion. There is so much guilt and second guessing after the end. We only had two weeks of downward spiral before he went to sleep. I am thankful for that. Thanks for your help.
