A man who previously posted about not telling his wife he was dying has given an update on his situation. Despite his initial decision not to tell his wife, he eventually did and they went on to spend a wonderful four months in Australia. COVID hit soon after their return, and while the man is still alive, he has lost much of his strength and is now in hospice care. He has left behind a collection of greeting cards for his wife but admits there are things he wishes he had done differently in life. The update is both heartwarming and heartbreaking and serves as a reminder to cherish the time we have with loved ones.

A touching update on a post about hiding terminal illness.
