    My partner was diagnosed 3 weeks ago with IV pancreatic cancer, 4 days later he had a stroke, due to Covid, I was unable to visit, he was discharged early on Monday this week so he co7ld spend time at home. I’m so happy he is home and am doing what I think is right to make him happy but understandably he’s in a dark place, what can I do to make his remaining time better?
