    Forgive me if i am wrong but this silence you describe sounds a lot like your fear of an empty house once your husband has gone.  Please put these fears about this on hold  if you can and concentrate on your husband, he needs you so much right now.  Perhaps you can do things that will help both of you - invite friends round to see him, this gives you a chance to have some normal conversations and also gives him the chance to say his goodbyes.  Its not easy, and I certainly felt like I was 'on the brink' when my Dad died 4 months ago, but you will get through this.
