Let me welcome you also. Definitely take some time to let the whole situation sink in. It's a lot to take in. Olivia's right, it can sometimes be quite a long process for stability to settle in, so it's really important you be patient with yourself and those around you. Get some books to read on the subject, and hopefully your husband will want to get educated on the subject too. If you want some good book recommendations, we can all chime in with some.
