I didn't get a chance to respond to your first post, but, I just want to say that everyone else gave excellent advice. My heart goes out to you. I cared for a dear friend for about 9 months while she was suffering from terminal cancer - I moved into her house to be there for her and I kept working a full time job (from 4pm - midnight at a newspaper).

I am so glad that your husband promises to help out. I just have one suggestion on that point: make a list of SPECIFIC things that you need help with on a regular basis.

Women are very good at "intuition" -- they just "know" what you need help with before you even ask. Men, no matter how good and sincere their intentions are, have NO IDEA what you need unless you TELL them in very precise terms EXACTLY what you need them to do, how it needs to be done and when you want them to do it.

So, while you're thinking "At last, he understands!! Whew, NOW he's really going to start helping", HE'S thinking: "As soon as she tells me something to do, I'll do it."

Just my suggestion based on YEARS of experience!!!
