    Hello Mea,
    Please let me add my condolences as well.
    Your road ahead will surely have some bumps, but I urge you you to use all those memories of the 'Healthy husband' you cherished to overcome the sadness of his passing. My wife and I have often discussed the difficulties faced by a surviving spouse and we know that a support system is a critical component of that process. Please involve your family, your friends, and your church (if you have one) in the healing process. They will be a pain in the neck at times, but even that will help.
    Luck to you, and regards
