How much rests on our shoulders


I don't know what I am doing. :-) As in, am I doing the right things, at the right time, in the right order? Did I say the right thing to comfort him, or did it just cause him to worry more? Am I asking him, and his doctor, nurse, facility staff, the right questions? Should I share my worries & concerns with him, or continue to appear brave and confident? Do I argue, and work to help him understand, or should I continue to just divert, deflect and distract?\n\nThis is hard. And scary.
