How do I support my husband who has just lost his father to bladder cancer. It has only been a week and he has completely withdrawn from me. He is staying busy with his Ph.D program. He is barely home and completely out of touch (by phone, email, etc.). He has a huge conference coming up and I know that he is preparing. He comes in and showers, speaks to our 3 small sons and leaves. He does not speak a word nor even look at me. Do I need to do anything? Or should I just give him all the space that he needs? Any advice would be helpful. Thank you in advance.
