I think that info.: You provided was for yourself & not your husband. So, i'm sorry but there is no context in which to assess the picture. Does he have respiratory or cardiac problems? Is he receiving palliative care due to a terminal condition? The best thing to do if you fear he is dying is for him to see a physician. You can provide more clarifying information regarding situation & re-ask this question.
