    Tuffydawn,
    I am so sorry you are having such a difficult time, I do hope your daughter is alright. It must be so much worse for you with your husband unable to show any empathy.
    Sending you a ((((hug))))

    I too hope your daughter now feels less distressed and the immediate crisis is over.

    Sadly, your man's illness probably means it'll be easier for you to cope without his input than with it.
