Heart Diease and unsupportive partner

Hi, I am due to have heart bypass surgery soon - a double bypass. About 10 years ago I had a single bypass and managed to get through the emotions and physical well being of that by myself, as my husband was going through a very bad patch at work and was severely depressed, so I just got on with it. I changed my diet, exercised more, took my medication.

However, this time I am more scared being its a double bypass and all the associated risks with a second bypass. My husband has reverted to mood swings and makes me feel that it is all my fault that I now need surgery again. It has driven him to a dark place, but I need him positive for me. I lost my mother a few years back and a sister a few months ago.

Any advice on how to cope with him and continuing heart diease. I am 55 years and don't want to have a third bypass?
