Greetings KunaIdaho! I am sorry about what is happening.
I hope the needed comfort is gotten.
I found out Candida albicans can cause aneurysms also so I would at least stay away from sweets to avoid strengthening that problem since Candida loves sweets.
If a cry is needed it might be best in my opinion to try crying out of his presence maybe with a walk outside or doing something to get the mind off of things by helping others to decrease his stress. Sweet words to him may also be useful. Of course everyone can decide what they would like to say and do.
