I have been where you are. You must prioritize.

Do everything rehab suggests. Your child is #1 in this situation. This is life or death issues.

Spend time when available with elderly parent. If they are ok mentally, explain that you have to focus on child, but you love them.

FTG as for you husband. He wants to quit, let him. It takes STRONG people to go through what you are and if he is not strong enough, then he is just sucking your power right now.

And in your spare time take care of yourself.
