I am so sorry that you have gotten this news.

I also fully understand the reluctance on your part to having to ask for, or turn into and "obligation" to your loved ones.
I've never been in your situation,
I have had friends that have.

One thing to consider is to hire domestic help and arrange home caregiver help beforehand. Many providers really like to help and need the work.

When I had my second child, I had a c section and went back to work fairly early - and I had a reflux baby who cried 10 hours a day.
I was exhausted and could not keep up with the house and chores.

My part time housekeeper saved my sanity. I did not feel like ME not being able to do it all was a burden.
It may make combating negative feelings easier.
