Pour away, W. There's nothing selish about feling overwhelmed, especially in suchan overwhelming situation. Ask at the hospital and the oncology department to put you in touch with the Cancer Association's counsellors, who are used to helping people and their families deal with all sorts of tumours. Of course you are woried about him having brain surgery --- but the other worries, large and small, of life, don't disappear, either. Don't blame yourself for being realistic and pracical about such things as life insurance --- by doing so, you're taking some of the burden he might otherwise have to bother with at a time like this.
Don't be too afraid to discuss some of this with him --- he may WANT to be asked to help or advise, so as not to feel redundant already ; and doesn't need to spend all day every day only worrying about himself. And he may be lying there quietly worying about you, without you letting him discuss these things with you.
