Hard to take

Hi, my wife has been diagnosed with ACC cancer last friday 02-03-18 and since then life has became a chalenge. First thoughts are the worse ones you can't avoid thinking the bad and sad things, you fell lost, useless and praying that is just a bad dream then you recognize that you need to put yourself together and face the reality. I am still crying in the bathroom, on the bed on my way to work and I am still feeling lost but I can not let the emotion take over of me because my wife and my 2 beautiful kids (Gabriela 5 yrs old and Daniel 17 months old) need me. Still a lot of question without answer but I hope that I can find some of them here and also share my feeling as well. Thank and sorry for my English.
