    Hi Lindy, I'm sorry to hear you are going through this. We all have or are going through very similar things. I'm not sure whether the gasping is usual, maybe someone else here can help there, but my partner also was like that for a number of days, breathing very heavily. It is so upsetting for us isn't it seeing our loved ones how we are so not used to seeing them and if they are aware they may feel distressed too and we have to be brave and strong for them. You are not alone. Many of us have been through it too or are at this time. I lost my mum 2 years ago, we were far closer than just mum and daughter, she was my best friend and we had such a connection. Now having just lost my partner I feel very lost. My 2 closest people who knew me so well, gone. Keep posting, it's good you have reached out as you are not alone on here. Kate
